Instead of stocks being produced on traditional pantograph type duplicating machines, we are using CNC technology which is unmatched for precision. Jim makes the stocks in his own workshop and takes care of all the details from programming the computer to carve the stock to modifying the CNC router to handle the long delicate stocks.
Jim and Kibler's Longrifles have partnered with the best in the industry. The Late Ketland Locks that are used in his Southern Mountain Rifle Kit are produced by Jim Chambers who has been known for making the best sparkers for years. Jason Schneider at Rice Barrels works closely with us to provide his already top-quality barrels to our precise specifications that allow us to make a kit where each and every barrel slips into the CNC carved barrel channel with no gap and little to no fitting.
This kit is a dream for experienced gun builders to be able to put together a kit where everything just works. It's also an invitation to new gun builders to build confidence with a project that will let them get their hands dirty without the headache that can accompany a new venture.
Besides the sleek, historically-accurate design which is typically of all of Jim Kibler's work, the most significant feature of these kits is the method stocks are produced. These are the only flintlock kits with CNC carved stocks. Precise, repeatable results lead to consistent reliable quality.
