Wow one coat of oil on the patch box cover really darkened up nice.No dye just Danish oil and a hint of bone black. Stock has one light coat only took it out in the sun for a picture.

They're GREAT kits and beware...it's habit forming. Not a week went by after finishing my .58 Colonial (rifled) that I ordered a parts kit for a .54 swamped Colerain Lancaster from Sitting Fox. This one is a LOT more work, but it's all about building skills. I use the Kibler as my reference for various positioning and shaping guidelines. My Colonial hit low and I had to file away a lot of the front sight blade. I'm going to replace both front and rear with higher sights to get them away from barrel shimmer and to raise my cheek up off the comb a little. I thought I'd brought it down enough but time on the range proved otherwise. Have fun!

It's done I have not decided yet how I want to do for the barrel finish so for now I put a few coats of perma blue and rubbed it back a little. Tomorrow I am going to go shoot and see how it does. This is my first build and first smoothbore.
