Thanks for doing this series, I am cleaning up a room to use as a shop for a kit I purchased. Last time I built a kit I was in the eighth grade. It was an Ultra Hi Kentucky rifle kit, one of the ugliest things ever marketed. When I was done it was even uglier. Looks like an eighth grader built it. It did serve its purpose, it got me shooting black powder. I harvested two deer with it. Im retired now and still have that rifle. Anyway, I am looking forward to this series like people are looking forward to the Game of Thrones. This will be time better spent. I hope to turn out a rifle worthy of giving to my oldest son. Again, thanks for the support and excellent product.

Thanks Jim, I love your videos.
I just received your your colonial this week.
Now I have to save up for your mountain kit.
If it wasn't for you making kits easy enough for an inexperienced fella to successfully complete
some of us may not get into this hobby. Once we get our confidence up, we can move onto more complicated stuff. 
Nothing more soul draining than to spend 1K+ and fail at it and have a pile of useless wood.

Thanks guys.  Glad the videos are beneficial.  We try to make not only a kit that is very easy to assemble, but also one that is very precise, historically correct and has impeccable design and style.  Our goal is to make kits with all the quality a high end custom muzzleloaders possess.  As I've said before, we are constantly working on refinements to make the product better.  They are very good now,  and getting better all the time.

Our goal has been to run a successful business by serving not only those entrenched in the longrifle culture, but also those on the outside.  In many ways, the high quality muzzleloader world has been a bit of an exclusive club that is in some ways hard for the newcomer to enter.  We're trying to change that.  A goal of most longrifle related organizations has been growth, but in our view this has been attemted largely with the same narrow minded approach. 

We have big plans and goals and will keep pushing to acheive them.

Thanks everyone for the support and allowing us to continue to grow.

All the best,
Jim
