I think Cabella's has the Lyman Great Plains Rifle in kit form. That's about the best production gun on the market. While not a kit if you want a period correct rifle and top quality parts check out Pecatonica River. Their stocks are 98% inletted and they have a list of suggested parts to make an authentic rifle of every kind used back in the day. Pecatonica River Long Rifle Supply

Sad but true. Thirty odd years ago they were the "go to" folks for anything black powder. I used by my caps from them 1000 at a time. (still have one of the metal cap boxes from them). Also got some good deals on guns. I remember my first revolver was a Colt Army I paid around $60 for.

I actually went to green mountian and found a 50 cal blackpowder barrel for un 200 dollars and since i have the wood i am going to try a full build of one over the rest of the winter since i am a truck driver i dont get to hunt blackpowder this year. I will put a few of the biulds in the diy section. Thanks for your help gentlemen i found what i wanted and i am going to finally get the guns i want for a change instead of what everyone thinks i should have. I might even use the next door neighbors heater and make a few of the parts myself. He use to tinker with rot iron and metal stuff. i will see how it goes
