I have an Jukar Kentucky rifle I got as a kit about 30 years ago. At the time I did not have access to the tools to build the rifle so I let a friend build it for me (yep stupid youth move) and he did a poor job.

The rifle has never been shot and is missing the trigger guard and a side plate.

I am getting back into black powder shooting and I want to rework the rifle (I now have the tools and woodworking knowledge). I would like to take it apart, fit the parts together a little better, refinish the stock and replace the missing parts.

I think I can use parts from a older CVA, is this correct?

Also what is the best way to remove the pins holding the barrel in? Can I just drive them out with a small nail or punch? will this cause me any issues later?

Any pointers that will help me in any way would be greatly appreciated!

Check with Dixie Gun Works. The parts to many of these kits are rather generic and with a bit of wood removal or file work you can make a variety of parts work fine. You might even find a guard or side plate you like better than the originals

Yes, a small punch, or a nail with the end filed flat, can be sued to drive out the barrel pins. Go easy to avoid potential damage to the stock around the holes.
