You will need to finish inlet the parts, do final rasping, then sand and finish stock, polish and brown iron, polish the brass and assemble the rifle. Beautiful tigered maple stocks are available at extra cost and slow delivery. Instructions included. Note: I checked out the first kit for accuracy of inletting and time required. I am experienced and fast, so I lazied through the steps to get it into shooting but not final finished shape. I took 4-5 hours to assemble it, then took it out and shot a 2 inch group offhand with my 84 year old eyes. You youngers will do better. I figure another 6 hours to finish it, mebe longer for first-timers.

There are three options: You can buy this rifle as a complete kit for you to sand, polish and finish for $900 OBO,OR  buy the kit  already put together and ready to shoot but in the white for you to sand, polish and finish for$1200 OBO or as the  completed and finished rifle, like this one for $1400- $1700 OBO depending on quality of wood.  Note: this kit-to-rifle series is NOT related to GRRW Collectors Ass'n rifles. Those rifles will be clearly marked GRRW CA on the barrel. These rifles WILL NOT be so marked,  but they will have Doc's cipher at the breech, finished rifles only.
