So, I bought this Traditions Kentucky rifle kit and messed up the stock pretty bad. Didn't want to waste all the parts so, I sent them to Tom Knight of Las Vegas, NV to fit them on  a one piece stock for me. He is one of he best communicators I've ever dealt with and went out of his way to give me all that I wanted! Just one awesome friend in my book!

Today, he sent me a pic of what my rifle looks like so far and I am thrilled!

wow that is a huge difference!  I have a flintlock traditions kentucky as well. Whats he charging to do the stock? I may have some great interest in doing this for mine as well, at least have him to the barrel channel and fit the parts and leave most shaping up to me.

My stock is made of maple and I added the patch box at extra plus, we worked out a good deal. Here is his contact info if you want to talk to him on what you want. Again, he is a great communicator.

I love the root beer color of the stock! I'll post a shooting report once I have it and get a day set aside to take it to the hills. t up

That would be a good one to do a re-stock on. I've been thinking of getting another one myself in .45 and having Tom do the same thing to it. My son will be hunting for the first time this year and if he likes it, I might have it made for him.

Especially if you had seen how bad I messed up the original stock! lol!  Tom Knight really did an outstanding job and this rifle will get passed on to my son one day.
