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.
My kit arrived in about a month, I ordered plain maple but my stock had very nice curl throughout. I assembled it to "in the white" over one weekend, and finished it over the next. there were a couple of minor issues, but nothing that I couldn't handle. It came out Beautiful. It fires instantly, and accurately. It shoots better than I do. Now my brother wants one. I would not hesitate to buy another Kibler Longrifle, and already have my eye on the Woodsrunner. My hat is off to Jim and his entire crew.
I have very little mechanical ability, but I built this rifle in one month. The trick is to watch the YouTube video's Jim has on making this gun. You can't go wrong. The gun shoots better than I can. The CNC machining means that you will have a gun that is almost totally ready to go together. Yes, there is some work to it, but it is not hard. I thought this gun was too expensive, but compared to others, it is not. You get quality! I am so glad I got this gun that it is almost indescribable. You can't go wrong.
