My 1st one I kept a work log to see out of curiosity how long it would take me. Took around 180 hrs if I remember. This last one I started a log but quit tracking after about 60 hrs and I did not get to touch the rifle for a couple months when I was 1/2 way in. Guessing about the same. Other than barrel browning took a few more days to get correct than my 1st rifle. Next planned build will probably take longer due to more and more difficult inlays and more complicated patchbox that are planned. Also plan on some simple patchbox engraving.
I don't mind though, keeps me off the street. I do find that the closer I get to finishing, the more time I set aside to work on it. A sort of light at the end of the tunnel thing
