Well my good sir, does 199.99 count as under $200 in your opinion?

I know it's pushing the line being close, but it an option, and as far as I know it'll ship to Kalifornia without issue.

If you do purchase it, I'd appreciate it if you let me know after how the build went, as I am contemplating one myself but I haven't won over the missus about it yet.

Check out dixiegunwork.com. They have a few kits below your mark. They also have some way way over your mark. I have ordered from them a few times, and had good luck.

I don't know about the pistols, but I bought a hawken, and a Kentucky long rifle, the cheaper kits, the parts were decently nice, but the wood stocks needed extensive inlay work to have the metal parts lay in it neatly, I didn't have the tools to make them look nice, so I sold them. I still want to build one, but I will get a better kit, I've heard good things about track of wolf kits, but they are kinda pricey.

A 200 dollar kit isn't going to be good quality but if you just want to learn its fine for that.

About a month ago - at the range, I fired a big bore Hawken. Owner said it was from a kit; but it had to have been much more than $200. Really a beautiful rifle.
