Looking for my first long box
« on: May 03, 2021, 09:43:39 PM »
Been reading several posts on makers and recommendations.  Have a few on the short list and still contacting a few about availability.

Anyone know who is near North AL that I might need to consider?

These are in no order, Jeff Mckamey, Ernie Fetters, Scott Witter, T J Johnson, Marlin Watkins, Larry Stephens and Ralph Snodgrass these are just a few and I'm sure others will add to this list...

Thanks.  I've made contact with SS Custom.
Reached out to Mr. Witter on here.
Tomorrow going to check with Mr. McKamey and Mr. Snodgrass.

Steve Mann, Dan Wittenberg and  Toby  Kock (Packmule on this forum ) can be added  to the names previously mentioned.

Jeff McKamey is near Chattanooga if you're looking for someone near N AL.

If you talk to Dan Wittenberg and you also see his calls,,your search will end there.
