    That's not a rifle that's a work of Art. Beautiful. May it serve you well for many years.

    I'm pretty sure that is a Verner from Pecatonica. The lines look exactly like the one I built from them.

    On their site they claim this gun was a copy of an original Verner they had on hand during the build.

    Very nice gun! I love mine. Got to shoot it over Christmas, extremely accurate with the Green Mountain swamped 45 barrel. One of the shooters with us was holding 3 inch groups with it at 80 yards. I didn't fair as well :grin:

    The carving and fit is beautiful on yours. I want to build a Southern Mountain, I'm going to be hard pressed to not do any carving, as they are not supposed to have any (we'll see). Just curious and if you don't mind me asking, what did she set you back?

    Have fun with it..
    Thanks, Ron

    I would say you came out on the better end of that deal.

    Most definitely. I have 120 hours in mine, plus paid Pecatonica around 900 for the parts, 1000 with the percussion lock. 120 hours labor for 600? No way. :grin:

    That stock alone is 350, in that grade inletted for a swamped barrel, with the lock and triggers inletted as well, and it still needs final fitting.

    He got a great deal on that gun, carving is slow and laborious.

    That rifle, as far as I'm concerned is the definition of functional beauty! What a find!
