I know there is a limited market for it but surely it should be valued for a little more. I occasionally browse various gun sites and have never seen another one for sale. Hence I was curious about your opinions on the matter.
    You better have one rare highly sought after piece if you follow this logic. Think about all the anticipation you miss out on when buying something in stock. Instant gratification. Not me. You're probably too young to remember Sears catalogs for Christmas.

Once finished Kornbrath sent it back to S&W for final polishing and finishing then sent to the new owner in California who received his new magnum on November 19, 1936... THIRTY-SEVEN days after the original order was placed!

    That is gorgeous...thank you for sharing it ..i love engraved guns that are done well... God Bless,John

    "Does buying an object incur additional value because someone else paid that time out so you could buy that object with no time invested?"

    That's a great question. Personally, I'd always rather make/build/grow something rather than buy it. We don't really buy many things today that require a wait. Maybe a house.

    You don't say what you are waiting for. I guess that it is something that is not really required for your day-to-day living. I am currently waiting for a new holster (13 weeks and counting). I have about decided that I don't really need it. It was still okay a couple weeks ago, but now I don't know. It will be nice when I get it, but I could have learned how to do it myself by now.

    20 years ago I built a small boat. It took over six months, but I was doing, not waiting. It was worth every minute of measuring, cutting, and sanding.

    Of course an object incurs additional value from the time (and knowledge and skill) required to produce it. When I buy an object of art, I do think about the time and talent required to create it. It takes about eight hours to build a car in a modern factory, but how long, in how many minds, has it taken to evolve?
