I wondered about this at the time you wrote. In my experience Sierra vacs 
are as good as they get, at least in WW1 subjects, so I was surprised you'd 
found a kit to be all asterisky.

This makes more sense. As good as they are, they still require work not 
usually needed on an injection kit, though there are advantages and 
compensations of course.
