Stay away from Traditions' Trapper. It doesn't look right (too much wood between the trigger guard and the bottom of the lockplate) and quality is not there. I had to ream out the ramrod hole lower so the ramrod would go in. Thanks to the ramrod retaining spring, I can't get the ramrod out of the gun and that means you can't take the gun apart. Right now I have it assembled and am hoping the spring will wear out so it will be easier.

Other folks had to retime their drum on a lathe (the nipple was at the wrong angle) and a classmate had to bend the hammer so it would strike the nipple. The wood itself is a mystery wood and is soft for a hardwood. That means it won't cut easily.
