In the 1960's George Hoenig worked for Pachmayr and a stint at Weatherby. The American custom rifle & shotgun stockers soon became aware of his influence when he built the incredible stock duplicating machine that held tolerances of .0005". The genius of George Hoenig started building the Rotary Round Actions in the early 1990's. His first was a very neat Vierling in 20 x 20 x 5.6-50R & 22 L.R. To this day you can get 20-28 or 410 shot barrels, combination rifle & shot barrels or a big bore in 450 N.E. Everyone I have seen displays immaculate workmanship, finesse and mechanics that draw attention in every gun circle anywhere on this planet.
