    Kibler SMR Build

    Jim, I have to say I have been a stupid A-hole and like I said earlier a jerk... after working the stock more and more this afternoon/evening, burnishing and adding more coats of Permalyn it is beginning to pop just like you said it would, and I’m sure it will turn out to be one of the most...

    Kibler SMR Build

    You know jim, I did have higher expectations for the wood on this stock And it did not include “wiping my butt for me”.

    Kibler SMR Build

    Got her all finished up last night and fired maybe 10 shots off hand at a few old pop cans. Not one miss at 20 yards! Pretty good for no sight in.
