We will start shipping the first orders in the next few months! We will contact you when your kit is ready to ship, please refrain from calling regularly to check on the Woodsrunner. This is a pre-order and the kit is not yet in production.
No payment is due at this time--if you don't want to pay yet, please don't put in your credit card number.
Stocks for this kit are being produced on new and highly sophisticated CNC equipment. This will result in a kit that is even easier to assemble as compared to our current offerings.
The kit does not come carved--the photo with the carving is a custom rifle Jim made years ago that was based on the "Woodsrunner" rifle

This service is available as an add on to a kit gun order. This is $700 for this service.
A gun provided "in the white" will be completely assembled and functional. The wood will need sanded and finished. The metal will also benefit from some cleanup. This is typically a little light filing on the rough spots followed by a little polishing with abrasive paper. The metal can be left in this condition or can be blued, browned, aged etc.
Your kit will arrive assembled, ready for you to customize and finish.
We recommend the work of talented and experienced gunsmith, Chuck Edwards, for those who would like additional finishing work done on their Kibler Rifle. He can be reached at (573) 421-5098 and his online page is found on Facebook. He has finished out many Kibler rifles and does fantastic work. The pricing will vary depending on the work and should be discussed with Chuck.
