If you could have any modern builder alive or dead from the 1950's to today build your rifle who would it be? Would you want a smooth bore or rifled bore? I have a SMR that was a Kibler kit built by Chuck Edwards, one IMO very good looking rifle in .45 cal. Next one will be a smooth bore in .58 or .62. Have been talking to 3 builders refining the build. Price wise they are all real close on cost. One has said he doesn't enjoy making the gun I set pictures to and he is 4-5 years out now, the other 2 are 1-2 years out. I think being able to shot shoot, ball, and buck and ball would put game on the table.
