    I have a new muzzle brake design I want to get made out of either 15-5 PH SS or 17-4 PH SS; I tried to gather quotes for it and holy crap they want literally insane prices. One of the places were Protolabs, they quoted it at over $1500 for one, $1200 each for 2, and the decrease was minute after. Like what the heck? I’ve had parts quoted before to be machined and the highest for a complex part was $400 for one and dropped steeply for more. This part is fairly complex yes, but isn’t too difficult IMO. There are way more complex designs for brakes on the market than mine and they don’t charge the price of an organ for it. Does anybody know of any machine shops that charge fair prices? – by /hq/Homeboi-Jesus – –
