barrel offset

About a year ago I purchase a completely rebuilt Turkish receiver, not long after that purchased a K98 barrel from Numrich to mount into the Turkish receiver however I was just notified by my gunsmith that when the barrel being seated into the receiver the exisisting rear and front sight are off by 100 degrees and to right this it could run me around $175 +. Now I have done business with this gunsmith for about 2 years and he does a great job but I felt he should have been more suggestitive to other alternative ways to make my mauser shoot ready but then again maybe there aren't any or are there? Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

many of the military barrels have a band front sight, or just have him install a new one, timing the threads and reheadspacing will cost much more.
