Trying to Locate a Certain Kidd



Log in to see fewer ads
A few years ago there was a Kidd 22 with a bench rest type of stock for sale on this site. It had a beautiful blue and white flag type clear coated striped stock. It was for sale in the classifieds and probably also under this section but I am having no luck in finding or pictures of it.

If I can find it I will do my best in trying to buy it.

Any help in finding pictures and possibly the Owner would be a great help. Thanks

Actually flag? Or just red/white/blue wood?

I remember it being for sale as well but don't remember the outcome.

I tried finding his username here at RFC but came up with nothing. Maybe he deleted the thread? I'll give it another go and see what I come up with.

Good luck with trying to buy it. It is one of my favorite KIDDs I've seen. I even contacted the owner and got the info on the painter at the time.

Here you go!

He hasn't been on RFC in about 5 years unfortunately though. The rifle was put up for sale about 8 years ago. Good luck!

If you really want that rifle, you could have one built. May take some time though. The stock would be the longest wait. It's a McMillan STC, as described in the Snipershide link that Heckel provided. If it is not in stock with McMillan, wait could be very long. I have ordered 2 out of stock stocks from a vendor with a proprietary design mold kept in house at McMillan. This vendor orders lots of stocks from McMillan. Even with his large order quantity yearly, these stocks took 6-8 months to receive. McMillan makes excellent stocks, but believe me when I tell you they don't care about even large quantity customers, let alone a one off customer. If the stock pictured is in stock, no issues.

The painter is listed in the link, although any airbrush artist worth his salt could duplicate the paint by just looking at the picture. The barreled action is just simple Kidd parts, unless it's an old threaded barrel Super Grade, the link didn't specify, you could have one very quickly. Hang on to your wallet though!! There will be some $$'s involved in replicating what is seen in the picture.

I could even help you out on the scope, as I have 2 of them and could part with one to help a guy out!

Edit: I looked at the old RFC link, it is a Super Grade. No problem, Randy at CPC can fix you up and you can use a barrel blank, which allows a barrel upgrade as well. Just order a complete action from Kidd and have Randy thread, slug, cut and finish the blank to your action. I would suggest an easily obtainable Shilen 4g ratchet .900 blank. Recent Shilen barrels have shown improved lapping of the bores in the last year. Not that they were too shabby in the past!!
