Assembling the Jim Kibler Colonial Rifle Kit - Video #1

For some time, we've been wanting to start producing some Youtube videos.  We've been quite busy and I've always found an excuse not to until now.  It's certainly not my favorite thing to do and I refuse to watch myself, but I do recognize their value.  So if your interested in information pertaining to the assembly of our Colonial Rifle Kit, check this out:



Some of the information is specific to our kit, but some can be applied to longrifle building in general.  We've shot a lot of video the last couple days, so many more will be coming soon.  I know the quality isn't the greatest, but our thought is that the information shared will be a good thing regardless.  Upcoming videos will deal with further details of kit assembly as well as other general aspects of our craft.

Let me know your thoughts and if you have any questions!

All the best,
Jim

Any questions or comments are great.  This is one that applies to just about any longrifle being made.  Hope this helps.

All the best!

Wow!  After seeing myself on the camera, I think I'm looking a little rough...  Need to take a little better care of myself, I guess.

This video is on brass hardware polishing.  Good information for building any longrifle.

All the best!
Jim

Every builder needs to learn to draw file a barrel.  Not nearly as intemidating as you might think!
