I've always wanted a repro 1843 Hall carbine kit from Rifle Shoppe. They are just up the road from me and I've been raising funds to irder one, but I am wondering how much of a challenge it would be to build one. Anyone have experience building a Hall or know someone who has?

My TRS 1740 build was very very tedious, I can imagine something like a Hall rifle would be even more tedious, but worth it in the end. Have you built many guns before?

If you haven't built any guns in the best part of 40 years then I'd buy the parts kit and send it to someone like Kashtuk Bowcraft or another builder because the Hall Rifle is a breechloader. And unlike muzzleloaders, breechloaders require proper headspacing and it could be very dangerous for an inexperienced builder to make.
