    Finishing a 1851 navy kit

    I think a patina/antique finish will look good, or polish it up like new and let time and use do that.

    Yet Another Kibler Longrifles Kit Build...

    This one is just brass but it's a unopened kit from the 80s I believe so will be a fun small project. Is stock with 36 on them, not like you need a bigger ball or more power. Cheaper to shoot as well.

    Help pick a barrel for my underhammer.

    Kinda got out on the back burner for now, money's a bit tight. I'm still thinking a 45, it's not much for the longer barrel so I figured I can cut it if the length feels to long. I had the money but just picked up a nice old hammered shotgun, so I'm messing with that now. More reason to order...
