In the white

  • 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.

Finished rifles

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.

    Getting some practice before I start the SMR!

    Worked with my hands my hole life then I was retired on disability. Have had some health issues and have developed very shaky hands. I’m getting some practice seeing if I still have some my mojo in my hands. So I’ve been making stuff for my SMR before I actually start the kit. Powder horn, short starter, patch knife, shooting bag, flint wallet and various other shooting needs.
    I’ll be starting the rifle very soon. The kit looks great and seems very doable for me. Big challenge will be the inletting I need to do for small toe plate I want to install! I’ll be in touch!

    All in all, a good kit and reasonably priced. My only problem was that I found the stock to be rather plain and soft...perhaps because I am used to eastern "hard rock" maple, and yours seems a different species. I appreciate that you replaced it.
    Inletting is superb, amazing really. I have done many from scratch, could never get it as clean as yours. Impressive.
    Barrel is beautifully finished, hardly any cleanup to do.. Very light in 45 cal.
    As to style, the triggerguard looks rather generic, could stand to be more hand wrought looking. Tang should be more substantial..it is elegant, but not what you would expect to find on a poor boy rifle.
    Anyway satisfied with it, you have a great company and excellent customer service.

    Shipping

    Liquid Shipping

    Liquids will not ship in the kit box. There are different regulations that apply to the chemicals that we sell and they will need to ship ground, when the kits will ship USPS Priority Mail. Plus, it would really stink if a liquid were to leak on your beautiful new kit!

    Order tracking

    You will receive tracking information when your item ships. For kits, you will be contacted before shipment and after shipment so there is no need to worry about a kit box shipping when you are out of town. All other packages will ship when available and you will be emailed a tracking link.

    If you have questions, feel free to email us at info@kiblerslongrifles.com or give us a call at 330-551-5844. Even if you have to leave a message, we promise to get back with you right away. Bree can answer most questions and she will be sure to ask Jim when needed.
