You are one truly blessed individual. Enjoy your new piece of functional art.Should one ever consider adjusting the balance of a rifle with use of perhaps a small weight in the patch box to make it less muzzle heavy, or would the additional weight not be worth the balance?
I'll shoot it and hunt with it for you then. Lol.Yeah, I was expecting it to be a nice rifle based on his previous work, now I'm scared to shoot this piece of art haha.
Beautiful work as always! You mentioned the barrel as one of Jim's. I take it this kit came with one of the new Green Mountain "blanks" they get and finish in house?Hi Simon,
I built your rifle to shoot not just hang on a wall. My favorite woods walk gun is my decorated high-end English fowler. Dings and scratches will make it look real. I believe Jim Kibler's barrels shoot very well so you should do fine at the range or in the field. You can almost always fix small dents by placing a damp rag against the stock at the dent and heating it with an iron set on high. Just hold the iron in place until it steams for a few minutes. The dent will be mostly or completely gone and the finish won't be harmed. I'll describe how to care for the gun in the owner's manual.

Do you have an opinion, you're willing to share, about these versus Rice barrels?
