You stole my line.It is a kit. You should expect some work to make things fit.
I know its a kit, and I have done these before, but this one was the worst one for the trigger guard being so far out of wack. I was just trying to say that most of the company's quality control has gone out the window.It is a kit. You should expect some work to make things fit.
Could not be truer said, especially in the early days. Sometimes to the customer's disadvantage because it is like buying windows and building the house to fit.Yes, I truly believe that all kits are made up from reject parts off the main assembly line. Kits are excellent for building problem solving skills.
Looks like there's a piece missing there; ?? A plate or something?Thought I would put a Pedersoli .54 kit together, but I think they put the wrong trigger guard in or didn't rout out enough wood.Even if it does go in it interferes with the trigger.The nose cap is tight and will need filed down to fit on the barrel.Something tell me poor quality control.View attachment 22927
If they would of broke they would of replaced them, that was e-mailed to me,That why you get thing from dealers that stand behind the things they sell, beside that you have to have some knowledge of what you are doing, and some people can't even think that far ahead.Maybe now you know why they had it on sale.I have now nixed the idea of gettin one.You would have really been bummed if those parts broke when you were tryin to bend em.
Note the Jim Kibler rifle kits; Everything precisely drilled, eliminates all the work you reference. He makes a Southern Mt. style with choices of wood, cal., etc. Just for information purposes, check his website if not already done so.You stole my line.
People seem to think a "kit" should be like one of those things that just snaps together with everything lining up and no work involved.
That might be true if we are speaking of plastic model cars or things like that but even the factory made gun kits do take some work. The pieces are semi-finished parts that the factory workers adjust and fit to come up with the finished gun.
At least the parts in a big factory's gun kit are semi-finished.
The parts in the "kits" (and I use the term loosely) supplied by companies like Track of the Wolf and Pecatonica River are just a box of rough sand castings, wood with undersize mortises cut and no holes located or drilled. The only thing on these "kits" that is close to being finished is the set trigger and the lock and both of these need work done on them to actually install them.
