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
Mostly good 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. October 1, 2009
Very True to Style Good Shooter This rifle was easy to build using furnished instructions and a little common sense anyone can do it. It took two days to complete which included the barrel bluing and stock finish. The first day at the range it was dead on at 50 yards without adjustment using a 177 gr roundball and 65 grains of Pyrodex. Group of 5 shots was 1 1/2 inches. Of course Ive been shooting since I was a kid too. I would consider changing the nipples to a "red hot" or some such if using black powder substitutes, at the very least use a magnum #11 primer. These sub powders are just so hard to ignite and require higher ignition temps than regular Goex BP. All in All a really nice project gun which will be goin into the field with me. Good balance, accurate, very fun to shoot. August 7, 2009

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.
