Bought this a few weeks ago, and it took me 3 or 4 nights to assemble. This is a nice project that will produce a good-looking gun (if you take your time and don't rush it). Just shot it last weekend, and it was dead-on at about 40 yards. This was the first gun kit that I've assembled, and I think its a great gun for the money.

First the instructions were so small you need a magnifying glass to read them, next the parts are not identyfied and you have to guess to make sure you have the right part..3 brass screws? probably for the rod barrels and so on?
The rifle was easy to put together with a little fitting. I have restored probably 30 rifles so this was no big deal. Blue or course is easy .
Now putting in the tenon pins>> just use a good square and mark the center of the tenon notch. Use a dial caliper to measure the top of the barrel to the middle of the tenon plate...be exact. Use masking tape on the sides of the wood to make marks. Intersect the lines and drill. It should hit dead center if you did it right. The instruction they include are over complicated for this.
The brass trigger guard was so far off I had to get another one ....a five week wait!....So I'm using the bad one until then.
Traditions needs to work on the instruction size and give a sheet that shows what each part is LARGER PLEASE!
I give the kit a solid 4.5
It came out great except for the trigger guard which they are replacing. Can't wait to shoot it.
It is well worth the money. The price on this quaility kit is rediculously low.
