About the Kentucky Pistol
In order to generate the proper enthusiasm for this building kit, it would help to know more about the pistol in question. The favored gun of the frontiersman David Crockett during his militia days, the pistol gained fame as he did. Later, it was the chosen pistol of early 19th century explorers and American pioneers, too.
One reason for its intense popularity with Crockett is because the one piece stock offers excellent balance and thus, better accuracy. The pistol is still only accurate to 25 yards, which for the time was sufficient.
