Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent learning device This kit went together smoothly and in a minimum of time.The wood was easy to sand and the metal parts fit together with a minimum of effort. The Kentucky Rifle kit is beautiful when completed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from 5 Stars for Kit; 3 for Sportsmans. Nice price. Slow to send(over a week-usually much faster). Poorly packed, packaging damaged in shipping(this has always been a problem).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The kit was here super fast, all in great shape. It looks really nice, I have already opened the package and started sanding and fitting everything. It looks like it is going to be a lot of fun to build. Thank-you Sportsmans Guide.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Looking though the blister pack, I can say this so far: The kit looks good and will make a good project. However, it looks like it will take more sanding/shaping than I had anticipated to match the contours of the stock with the brass butt stock trim. I'm weary of the trigger guard; due to others having issues with this part, and, there being visible defects in the metal that may make it weaker and require much care to avoid breakage. I expect to have to get a replacement part from Traditions.
