IN THE WHITE OPTION
This service is available as an add on to a kit gun order. This is $650 for Jim to assemble a kit gun that you purchase.
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.
Instead of stocks being produced on traditional pantograph type duplicating machines, we use CNC technology. The stocks and hardware are produced by Jim, the locks are produced by Jim Chambers and the barrels are produced by Rice.
The most significant feature of these kits is the method stocks are produced. With CNC, very precise and repeatable results can be obtained.
- Inlets are clean and precise and in proper location relative to each other.
- All parts are inlet and require very little fitting.
- The barrel comes fit to the stock.
- All holes (bolt and pin) are drilled.
- Dovetails are cut in barrel
- Stock surfaces are extraordinarily refined with little to no extra material.
