  1. Made in Spain

    Be a good kit if the lock n parts wasn't made in spain. The lock will bend n become unsafe when you have it half cocked meaning it will fire still....

    I added a patch box and engraving on the stock which really improve the look. I polished all the brass and put about 20 coats of Tru oil on the Stock. It was a little tricky getting the trigger pull just right because it had been cut too deep but I added a little wood and then it worked perfect. The trick to making this a great gun is in the time you’re willing to take to put it together. It could be two or three days or several weeks depending on how you want it to look. This is my third traditions gun my first one was a hawked rifle, the second a Kentucky pistol and both turned out extremely well because I took my time. You can’t just toss these together and expect them to fit.

    As far as the kit goes, it is a decent kit. I had a lot of problems with this kit getting the parts to fit. Had to do alot of wood work. The wood on the kit looks fine until i went to finish it. The wood was really low quality and it stained poorly. I have finished several of my own stocks and never had one look this bad. I have seen several videos of the rifle refinishing and this one isnt even close to looking like those. I probably wont buy another and will spend a little more to buy a better quality kit.

    I started a review when I was about half done, and gave this kit 4 stars. But there's nothing like seeing the finished product! I finished about ten minutes ago, and this rifle is a solid 5-star product. I ordered the kit late at night, and it was shipped the next morning. (You gotta love that.) My only complaint is with the tenons. I wish they came attached to the barrel, and that they were pre-drilled. Getting those right was my biggest headache. I was concerned about drilling the pin holes, but I measured carefully (nothing fancy, just used a ruler and a pencil) and they went right in. Just in passing, I "browned" the barrel and stained the stock with Minwax Red Oak, finishing the job with Minwax Polycrylic finish. The pictures on the web site don't do this kit justice. The finished rifle is far better looking! (Okay, one more complaint: the directions suck. And the online videos aren't much better. If you have any problems or questions, give somebody a call!)

    This was my first kit, but it won't be my last. The instructions were very clear and my rifle turned out beautiful. I was also very impressed by the speed and quality of shipping. I will definitely be buying another Traditions kit...and I will be buying it from Muzzle-Loaders.com.

    This is the best bang for your buck, hands down. This rifle turned out great for me as I was looking for a traditional style deer rifle. I am not a "history buff" or a reenactor so I am completely satisfied with this gun despite all the "bling" and the two piece stock which I epoxied together nicely. This kit took me roughly one and a half weeks to build when I wasn't at work. Be prepared for a lot of sanding and take your time with the measuring and drilling and you will not be disappointed.

    This is a beautiful rifle when finished, everything had a great fit with just a little sanding. I do a lot of wood carving and Im in the process of doing a lite forest carving on the stock along with adding a patch box. Thanks for great customer service.

    My wife got this kit for me at Christmas 2017. I set to work on it just after the new year. I finished it after a couple of weeks, not bad for being a full time student and working full time. I enjoyed the time working on it, fitting the metal parts into the wood required some minor chiseling and dremel work but was not bad. I took extra time and put a nice smooth finish on the wood before staining it and I polished the brass to a higher luster. I finally got to shoot it Labor Day Weekend. It fires great, had a ball at the range with it. I highly recommend this for a first timer.
