Never sell yourself short…I was just looking at Kibler kits last night. What nice rifles but I doubt I will ever order one. I don't think I have the skills to do the gun justice. I have built around 7 kits so far and used to buy boogered up CVAs from pawn shops that others tried to build from kits and I would rebuild those into nice looking guns but there is a lot of difference in a CVA, TC or Investarms kit and a Kibler.
I would hate to just build it plane looking without any carving. Even incise carving would look nice but I have never done that either. The wood working and staining aren't mysteries and neither is the metal finishing. Its just the little details that make the guns look like they just stepped out of the 18th century I am not sure about.
One thing that would be in my favor is that I have always liked the "working Mans" style of gun. The simpler, less elaborate kind of gun. But I like that in my trucks too. The less fancy the better.
