Finished up assembling my Kibler SMR today. Nothing out of the ordinary, only extras were a good internal & external lock polish, a toe plate, a couple of incised lines on the cheek rest, and some dimple adornment on the muzzle. And I also gave the bore a good scrub with JB bore paste, bore shine and green scotchbrite. I little finger tip polish on the crown too. Hopefully the bore scrub will aid in the barrel break in and ease the fouling a little. Standard Kibler front sight and a taller rear sight from Track of the Wolf. No stain on the stock, it was sanded, then 2 coats of BC sealer/filler, then 2 hand rubbed coats of my T&T oil varnish/gum turpentine mix. I used Jax Black on all the metal, just went for a much darker finish that what I’ve done in the past. Here’s some outside and inside photos.

I really like the contrast of the dark metal finish and the wood. Are you casting some .350’s this am so you can get her dirty?
