Pulled the lever today - Ordered a Kibler Colonial in 50cal rifled. Extra Fancy maple. With Patch box.

Might remember my old post about wanting one and asking about caliber. here

Little confusing on the web site for wait times. Extra Fancy Maple is listed 2x. 3-4 weeks or 8 weeks but he also posted a pile of blanks being dried out to Instagram over the weekend - who knows.

I, literally, couldn't find a single negative review of him/his stuff and I like that he's put out the videos so I guess I'll just wait!

Thinking about ordering a woods runner my dang self. Thinking it could be as much fun or more shooting a flintlock compared to my percussion hawkens. Probably go 54.

If these are as good as everyone says they'll be - I'm likely in for another.

I think, stock wise, I'll do his Iron Nitrate and then over the top with Tried and True. I like that look, bit darker to show off the curl.

I went back and forth between a colonial or a woods runner and probably order a woods runner. The slightly smaller size is pulling me that way.

This tried and true you speak of, is this like true oil ?

Basically this.

He shows it being used here - cuts first with turpentine and then follow ups are 100%

I'm more excited than I thought I would be. Mostly into it because of my kid really loves the mountain man era and such. Always talking about it, has Jeremiah Johnson and The Revenant on repeat. He wants us to do some Rendezvous and the like. I'm down for it, even paying for it but my proclivities are much more Colonial - The Patriot, Townsends etc. That type. Breeches and cocked hat, not buckskins and coons.

But I like a good project and will simply take as much time as needed to do the best job I can on it over the summer.

Very cool. Look forward to your reports on the kit and building progress.

I’ve been wanting a Southern Mountain rifle in .45.

I'm looking forward to just getting my hands on it lol. Haven't been this excited in a long time. Have a feeling, I'll end up gifting it to one of the kids and starting over after. But they don't know that yet.
