Default Pennsyltucky rifle kit assembly

I watched this video on assembling a Pennsyltucky rifle (Pennsylvania/Kentucky rifle). It was mesmerizing. I have wanted a rifle like that since I was in elementary school. Sadly, something has always kept me from it.

Maybe someday.....

You don't really even need the sound.

I've been looking at buying one of the kits for a flintlock Pennsylvania rifle and putting it together. It'd be a fun project, and pretty easy. I need to add it to the list of crap I'm saving for.

Anybody know what that base coat on the wood was? Rub in (with sandpaper?), then "cure" with a heat gun.

Also what did he finished the metal with?

That was a nice video and an artwork rifle at the end.

I know some folks have seen this linked video before because it's an older classic but it shows every aspect of building a flintlock rifle from the stock down to the smallest handmade screws, from the complexity of the lockbox to the hidden release button trapdoor patch box and so much more.
And even covers how to do a rifling which I think is beyond what most here would want to take on.

From what I’ve seen, the most finished kits are from Kibler. He is all over u-tube. He makes kits for a colonial rifle and a southern mtn rifle. ToTW an chambers make good kits too. The only inexpensive kit I would buy is the Lyman Great Plains rifle, a replica of the hawken. Another company I have been looking at is Sitting Fox. They have a kit for a transitional penn rifle. (Circa 1750).
