Sometimes you get lucky
« on: November 12, 2017, 04:47:11 am »
I was checking out the classified over at the American Longrifle site and found an ad for a new, in the box Kibler rifle kit priced $200 less than the price from Jim Kibler. These kits are CNC machined and go together very easily, the best part they are historically correct for a southern rifle.

32 cal, Rice A weight barrel, Chambers late Ketland lock, figured walnut stock, something I have been lusting after since they came out but not pulled the trigger on.

I guess the other guys were watching football and missed this one or would have been snapped up in a matter of minutes. I pulled the trigger on this on as fast as I could.

This makes two kits I caught at a bargain by haunting the various free classifieds. I picked up a Track of the Wolf Isaac Haines kit worth $1100 for $650 shipped off at of all places, the Stickbow classified.

I built 5 guns in a row and was taking a break so the Track kit is waiting in the wings, I will probably finish the Kibler kit first.
