To each his own.
I recently completed a custom 10/22 build- and I didn't take a perfectly good $200 gun and spend $400 to $700 on it to get a $300 gun- with all custom parts except for the ten round magazine and ended up with a rifle I really like- it'll probably end up part of my "estate".
If money was the issue, I wouldn't have undertaken the custom 10/22 build, as well as stop eating fish caught on rod and reel as well as speared on SCUBA at the coast because I can buy a lot of fish at the local fish market for what was spent on the activities.
