    Pecatonica River Long Rifle Supply Co.

    Back in the mid 90's I bought and built a 50 cal. Southern Mountain Rifle kit from Pecatonica River and was very pleased with the inletting of the stock and quality of the wood. I was thinking about getting one of their Hawkens Rifle kits either in half stock or full stock and was wondering if their quality was still good with the workmanship and wood. The hardware is from good sources like L&R , Davis and Siler with barrels from Green Mountain so that's a given, my question is with the quality of the wood and inletting.

    Anybody out there do a recent build with a Pecatonica kit? If so could I get your thoughts on Pecatonica.

    To date 85 grains of 2FF and .490 RB patched with Ox Yoke pillow ticking = 16 deer, 11 bucks and 5 does with this Southern Mountain Rifle.

    They have a very good website, and a great rep, I'd consider them for my next build.
