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.
The grain was so perfect, I couldn't bring myself to stain the stock. 4 coats of Tung Oil are all she got. She's a tack driver.
I have been wanting a .58 Kibler Colonial smoothbore rifle for awhile. I chose a cherry stock and couldn't be happier, with how it turned out. Everything was easy minimal wood work and every part fit like a dream. Let me tell you this smoothbore can shoot! Target below is @ 45 yards thats a 1.5in dot! I was simply amazed.
Thank you Jim and your team for a wonderful smoothbore longrifle.
I just finished my colonial rifle kit. It was a joy to assemble and to shoot. Looking forward to buying another kit in the near future!
Historically accurate, very easy build (even for those without experience), and a very accurate rifle. Jim does an excellent job at providing quality stocks with figure as well. If I was to purchase another, it would be a Kibler.
For years I started my rifles with a plank an went from there. Now at 75, I have trouble with all the grunt work, changing eye sight does not help. The kit was perfect in every way, it went together easily, and produced a wonderful Colonial Rifle. Thanks Kibler!!
