Dennis Adler states in his book
Metallic Cartridge Conversions On page 175.
"While craftsmen like Gren, Howell and Millington were building custom cartridge conversions; the demand for these guns far outstripped the ability to produce sufficient quantities. Hand Crafted versions were just that, handcrafted, and they require considerable time to build and were expensive, averaging more that $1000.  Into this scenario arrive Dave Anderson, a former machinist who segued got into gunsmithing as a second career in the late 1970s."
That resulted in a sort of a semi custom conversion, but as reality would have it no, reduction in price. When Anderson discontinued operation his average guns were selling in the $1300.+ price rage.
