Rated 4 out of 5 by from Blunderbuss Kit Really hard to evaluate at this present date. I unpacked the box and it looks like that it will be a somewhat easy process to finish up. I have located sources of supply for the browning process as well as stock finish. Otherwise it appears to be a nicely appointed kit and relatively easy to finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Kit and Sooo much FUN! I bought this to finally try out a kit and to see if I would like shooting a black powder shotgun. The kit went together easily. I did not have to do anything other than stain the wood and blue the barrel. It came out great and is the envy of the range every time I have taken it out. 80-90 grains of FFFG and 80 BB's as the load. The spread is perfect for 25 yards and I would hate to be on the wrong end of this weapon. Easy to shoot and quick to clean up. Even the range master wanted to shoot it. I love this gun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product. Easy to complete. The brass butt plate could be cut and fitted better.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The metal work on the blunderbuss was excellent but I found the wood work to be less than expected. I knew I would need to finish the stock but didn't realize that the hollowed out inletting would be so rough! I had to clear numerous chunks of wood in order for the action to function properly and smooth quite a few protruding areas as well with a dremil tool. All in the action mechanism cavities. I haven't shot this gun yet because I need to aquire the shot and powder but I look forward to it!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very happy with product although I couldn't get it shipped to Alaska. I had to have it shipped to a relative who then mailed it to me because it is perfectly legal to ship antique or replica firearms through the mail.

Esp important in the early days when the forestock was often quite thin and often went all the way to the muzzle. Without the nose cap the end of the stock could be damaged by the muzzle blast, impact with the ground, etc, also, they often were decorative.As the blunderbusses have belled muzzles, the muzzle blast to the rear was less of a problem, and the great majority tended to be utilitarian, &apos;relatively&apos; inexpensive, & designed for hard use. <div class="bvseo-author">Answered by: oldvet</div> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2015-07-27</div> </div> </div> <div class="bvseo-question-answer" data-questionid="1365391"> <h2 class="bvseo-question"> Can I shoot a maxi ball or a round ball out of it  </h2> <div class="bvseo-question-detail"> </div> <div class="bvseo-author">Asked by: Cyle</div> <div class="bvseo-answer" data-answerid="1820816"> Yes & maybe. A patched 0.530&quot; ball should work - keeping in mind that the barrel is short, and adjust the powder charge accordingly. However, the Maxi-Ball is designed for a rifled barrel, and would not be an appropriate match for this gun, or, for that matter, any smoothbore. <div class="bvseo-author">Answered by: oldvet</div> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2015-07-27</div> </div> </div> <div class="bvseo-question-answer" data-questionid="1401465"> <h2 class="bvseo-question"> do you think they may show up again and who is the manufacturer? </h2> <div class="bvseo-question-detail"> </div> <div class="bvseo-author">Asked by: Ash2</div> <div class="bvseo-answer" data-answerid="1655162"> At this time, we do not have an expected date on when this item would be available again.
