Beanland vs McWhorter Rifles

I'm about to have two rifles built and have it narrowed down between these two builders. I'm fairly new to the world of high-end custom rifles and wanted to see if there were some folks with a little more wisdom on this sight that might have any feedback on one versus the other. Beanland Rifles are 15-20% less pricey....so that will have a little to do with the decision as well.

    Don't know about Beanfield, but I have been to Mcwhorters shop and shot one of their rifles.

    They make a very fine product and the rifles do shoot, but I think you can get the same are better for cheaper from other fine smiths.

    You can usually find several of their rifles for sale on Gunbroker.

    You won't regret a Jon Beanland build. He's down here in my neck of the woods in Gould Okla. and he builds one hell of a rifle. Check out snipers hide if you want references. I've yet to hear of one dissatisfied customer.

    Me thinks this is a naive question. Most probably any rifle from either of these sources will out shoot the shooter and mechanically function beyond the requirements of any situation that will be encountered by a typical user.

    Personalities and temperaments notwithstanding I doubt there would be dissatisfaction with final result regardless of the choice.

    I don't doubt that the equipment will far outshoot the shooter......just looking for any personal knowledge anyone on here might have with either of these builders.
