    My first BP rifle was built from a Traditions kit. It was a good shooter but I put a lot of time and effort into building it. My current rifle is a Traditions flint. Another good shooter even if it is an "outta-the-box gun". A lot of people don't think much of the brand but I don't have any problem hittin' the mark with one consistently. I don't see building a high dollar gun if one is a beginner.

    My immediate circle of friends have run onto no less than 4 complete and unbuilt CVA kits from the '70s-3 pistols and 1 rifle. I think these things were sold by the thousands back in the day, and a lot still languish in basements unstarted and still in the box.

    1 Philadelphia Derringer

    1 "Belt pistol"

    1 "Tower Pistol" which from CVA was a 2/3 scale copy of the Elliott Dragoon pistol.

    I believe they all ran around $50.

    For those interested, Cabelas has some Pietta BP revolvers in an ad today for $129-$149 , both 44 caliber. Not kits, but for the price, very shootable firearms.
