    Eric Johnson was very well known in the , I believe the 1940's/1950's for building target rifles. Very accurate Target rifles. If I'm wrong on the dates someone please correct me.

    After reading gvw3's posting and pulling up the old site { research which I should have done :eek: } let me rephrase my post:D Eric Johnson was a barrel maker who made very, very accurate barrels:D
