My one and only kit gun is a TC .54 cal Hawkin kit that my wife bought for me as a Christmas give about 1985. Still have and shoot it and it still does real well. Not a pretty gun, I plum browned it and used oil on the stock. When newly done the plum brown was pretty . Now all the metal work has turned almost black, which is ok with me now. I remember that it was fun to build and finish back in the 80's. At my age now don't think a project like that would be fun for me, I've gotten older and have turned into more of a nit picker.

I really like building kit guns too. I recently finished my third Lyman Great Plains rifle kit and had it on the range yesterday. Enjoy the results of your time and effort!

I'm anxious to try my hand with a Kibler SMR kit. You certainly did good work on those.
