    Kits vary considerably in quality.  Some of them are pretty good - which minimizes the amount of work the end user has to do.  Others - not so much.  The good news is black powder weapons are pretty simple and usually well within the abilities of casual users with hand tools and decent hand/eye coordination.  Black powder shooting is fun.  Kind of messy but fun.  :thumbup
