My name is Jon Beanland, Owner of Beanland Custom Rifles. I have been working with rifles since the mid 1980’s. I have always strived to get every last bit of accuracy from a rifle.
I opened a machine shop shortly after high school in 1989. I was building complete engines, doing most of the machine processes associated with Hot Rods, Race Cars and just about any type of engine. I have always enjoyed working with machinery and making something work to the best of my ability.
I started shooting competitive Benchrest in 1994. I met a well-known Benchrest shooter who was also a rifle builder. He acknowledged my love for machinery, accuracy and perfection. He volunteered to help me get started in rifle building and show me the way that winning Benchrest shooters build their rifles. By the way “this man" is Rex Reneau a Hall of Fame Benchrest shooter that still holds the 100-yard aggregate Heavy Varmint World Record.
For the last 17 years, I have strived to build a rifle that screams precision and accuracy. I have tried just about every technique that I have heard of for doing different machining operations. Learning new ways of chambering, truing receivers, bolts and bedding rifles from some of the top builders in the country. I am using techniques that I feel is best to make your rifle shoot with the upmost precision.
I am also shooting long range competitively as much as possible. I feel this helps me understand what my customers are wanting when they build a rifle. I understand what it takes to make a rifle very accurate at close and extreme ranges. We all know that the shooter is a big part of the equation, but the rifle has to be the most accurate that it can be.
I started Beanland Custom Rifles full time in 2008. Business has been overwhelming since I started this journey. I am a one-man shop and I will be the only one who touches your rifle. Your rifle will be built as if it were my own, the best that I know how. I promise that I will strive to build every rifle with even greater precision than the last. Attention to detail plays a big role in my rifles. They have to look good, along with shooting to the best of their ability. My customers have to be completely satisfied. THAT IS MY GUARANTEE!
