Back in the mid 1970's my mom gave my dad a Kentucky Rifle kit for Christmas. I know that it came from either Sears, KMart, or Montgomery Wards. I believe that it was a CVA kit, but I don't know for sure. A relative is shipping the rifle to me, and I know that't it's going to need some work. For one thing, I know that the original ramrod was broken and may or may not be included. I'm also thinking about refinishing the stock. Any ideas where I can find a replacement ramrod and brass hardware? Any help is appreciated.

If CVA contact them, if not, possibly a spanish model. a bit harder to find parts but not impossible.

wooden ramrods and some parts are common so just google.

Dont use a wooden (shatter/break) or fiberglass rod (wear out the muzzle) for shooting, make/buy and aluminum range rod with replacible tip/jag/brush.

Refinishing is the easy part and materials are at home depot.

Some of the CVA "Kentucky" rifles are made in Spain. I've owned one with the CVA markings for many years, and several years ago I was offered one for $75 that was identical to mine, but just had the Spanish "Jukar" markings instead of the CVA brand name.

I got an old kit with a broken barrel tang that has been sitting in a closet for years. One of my dads friends tried to build it and screwed it up. If you can't find anything PM me and I'll see what I have.

Another couple of places you can try is Track of the Wolf, and Dixie Gun Works. They are all about black powder firearms.
