Just wanted to share some pictures of a southern mountain rifle I just finished. Its a Kibler kit, so it was close to being done when I got it. I supplied the stock wood, which is curly ash. I got it from a friend who passed a few years ago and I didn't want to screw it up starting the rifle from a blank. It is 45 caliber, swamped 46" barrel. Very light and points well. I used aqua fortis for the stain, sanded it back a bit,then a coat of asphaltum (asphalt dissolved in turpentine) to bring out the color. Thinned linseed oil, then 4 coats of Tru Oil. Can't wait to shoot it. Thanks for looking!
