Who's Trapper in cap and Flint. What manufacturer? Several are advertised from across the pond and then there's the GRRW CA Trapper Pistol.

I may be ordering a traditions trapper possibly next week. I'll start with percussion first however.

I haven't heard too many good things about the Trapper pistol, especially the kits.

I've basically heard that the trigger reach is pretty far. I handled one a while ago for a member that wanted me to take a look at it. It was a great looking pistol, but if you have short stubby hands, its not going to be very comfortable to shoot.

As far as kit guns go, some fellers just have mush between their ears and no skill at building them.

I put together a Traditions Trapper Pistol kit several years ago.  A lot of work was required to get the parts to fit properly.  I found the grips to be too bulky, so I thinned it down and removed the rear spur of wood just behind the tang, and the hook on the trigger guard.  Adjusting the triggers was an adventure, but i finally got it right.  It is a great shooter, and I really like having a set trigger on a pistol.  Not many come with a set trigger.  My Lyman Plains pistol kit was much easier to put together, and I thing the gun balances better.
