Those are two "gawjuss" (Southern for "gorgeous") rifles.

Looks a lot like a Kibler kit. Nice job.

Dennis,
It is jims smr kit. I added a horn toe plate and muzzle cap. I figured it would be a great place to start for a first build. I enjoyed it and i learned a lot.

The nose cap for that rifle is a challenge due to the size of the wood you have to work with. I have made several and hated to start on each one of them.

Here is my very amateurish attempt at a rifle built from some old parts I found when moving into my new shop. It is pretty simple and utilitarian. Not the best workmanship but it shoots. Barrel is an old
Douglas. 15/16 A F. .40 cal. Davis Jäger lock. Horn and pouch are also my own creation. Not a copy of anything in particular. Just wanted something kind of "Jägerische".  Pleasant to carry in the woods. Definitely not a "long" rifle. 

Love looking at all the fine rifles posted here. Thank you!!!

Great pics!  This thread, and the "plan n perdy" are my two favorites, so many beautiful rifles.  I have a .40 in the works, I will have to be patient for something to show.

Squirrelasaurus Rex.  But not that tough, apparently, since he died from a foot wound.

Actually I intentionally went out with the smoothbore that day so I could take a photo of an Abert squirrel that still had its head attached.
