So what are you thoughts on the kit as a whole? Any snags? Enough work required to give a sense of satisfaction with the "build" part of it? Quality of the components?

Excellent!

Now, how did you finish the barrel metal? Looks like the lock is "In The White".

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

I really liked the kit, the most work was draw filing the barrel and cleaning up the brass parts. There was a small amount of wood to be removed to fit the tang and the ramrod pipes, and you have to slowly drill for the pins.The lock is a sparker, smooth trigger.Over all top of the line parts.Also the ramrod needed some sanding to size it.I would highly recommend this kit.

Yes I left the lock in the white, because it stands out on the walnut,I used this on the barrel, and left it on longer the it said to.

will there be any problems with rust on the lock with it being left in the white. It looks awesome.
