Rated 3.8 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great value, fun project You can get good results as a first time builder and superb results if you have a general knowledge of wood and metal working. The amount of time, effort and quality you put toward this kit will be directly reflected in the final product. The kit lends itself nicely to cosmetic personalization, but bear in mind that it is not a ready to assemble and shoot kit, nor should it be. You will have to sand, file, stain, blue, grind and bend parts to make them work. I am extremely happy with my outcome and receive many compliments at the range, though I built it as a shooter not a wall-hanger. It shoots extremely well, 3-5” groups at a 100m once sighted in. You will need to budget for additional items like bluing and stock finishing items, sandpaper, steel wool, polishing compound etc. The tools I would not do any build without are my chisel/carving set, file set and Dremel. Nice to have tools are, detail sander, drill press, buffer and punch kit. I use all Birchwood Casey products for the metal and wood parts and they yielded outstanding results as always. Bottom line; take your time and your efforts will directly be reflected by the result. I’m currently shooting it with: .490 round ball .015 lubed patch 60g Pyrodex #11 percussion cap April 15, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Fun Rifle I found the kit to be fun to build and shoot parts fit together great and shoots smooth January 22, 2010
Rated 1 out of 5 by not upto basspro standards no instructions .2 screws to long. sights don't fit barrel groves January 7, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good gun for the price 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. November 10, 2009

A: 
The barrel is rifled and has a 1 in 66 inch twist. The rifle is very accurate for targets less than 100 yards. I have not shot targets any farther than that so as far as long range accuracy, I do not know.

Yes - It's a "rifle" not a musket. The description specifies "1 in 66" twist"

Most of these stocks are made of Walnut, and it is a very hard wood. It will brake easy in small area where the wood is thin, do to the in-letting where the lock or trigger will be fitted.

I don't think any of the Traditions Barrels are heat treated. Or proof tested for that matter.. Google it. You'll be surprised at the lack of quality..

A: 
Yes it is but sanding the stock is to finish it is wrong. Knock it down with 4 0000 steal wool first. wipe it down and blow of the steal wool with a air hose. Just put on a coat of Tung oil. Shake it up real good before use...(Don't shake varnish if you decide to use it. It has to be stirred.)

Apply one coat, let it dry and use four 0000 steel wool to knock it down. Keep doing this until it has the finish you like. I don't get too carried away if it;s for hunting.

Given that this is a 50 cal. - it's not a squirrel gun.

Seriously, loaded properly, you could take game up through deer easily with this rifle. As with any firearm it is mostly about accuracy, practice and effective range.

You would need to check with the group holding the re-enactment. Most groups have their own standards for accuracy. Different guns were used in different battles and regions due to time of the battle, availability, and local preferences.
