Photos of finished rifles are EXAMPLES of what can be done. Rifle is shipped in unassembled kit form.
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

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.
After the very first annoucement of the Woodsrunner I was a bit uncertain if I need a Gun so similar to the Colonial Rifle I already own ..
But after tons of Beer and Youtube I finally placed the order...it is the fun of building and finishing....and of cause the Knowledge to get the very best bang for my buck....and finally the outstanding performance of CNC machined Kit´s which are more than close to the original. Thanks to Jim, Katherine and the whole Team. Greetings from Germany
I cannot express a higher respect for a business and a craftsman as Jim Kibler. A Colonial was completed, by me, during the pandemic of 2020/ I was overwhelming pleased with the fit and finish. The accuracy is remarkable!
The staff at Kibler's Long Rifles is a truly dedicated to outstanding customer service which I have experienced more than once. I am building my second Southern rifle in cherry because of this. These kits are very well made and first time kit builder such as myself, have no issues (except self made LOL) finishing and assembling. Kiblers offers almost everything you need (including great videos online) to make a beautiful rifle. Their knowledge of these rifles and how to finish them is truly remarkable. I bounced a bunch of questions off Lorie and she always was able to answer. I am truly looking foreword to going back in time for fall squirrel hunting with my 36 cal. here is Michigan. This rifle is one of the most accurate muzzle-loading rifles I have ever shot
As the title says, the best I have ever seen. I have assembled several of Jim's kits and many of his competitors. His are #1 on the market. You won't be disappointed!
Jim & Katherine are wonderful people and sell an amazing product. I met Jim several years ago at a Log Cabin Shop building clinic. He always answers questions and is happy to share his knowledge. I just ordered the Woodsrunner gun and can’t wait to see what they roll out next!
