This Medium NUC is actually made up of two 6 5/8" NUC bodies that hold 5 frames each. You get two unassembled Medium NUC bodies, fully assembled telescoping top, inner cover, assembled screened bottom board, and entrance reducer. nails to assemble bodies included. Frames are not included.
Just got this one in the mail. Very good craftsmanship. I will be buying more of these.

I baught 4 of the Medium Nucs
I love them, I made my own entrance reducers because I am a control freak. I used wood screws to put them together, very nice the I used a nail gun to secur the bottom to the body to make picking them up and moving easier. They were just what I needed to introduce new queens and raise splits. And I got additional bodies to keep them able to increase in size should I loose a hive for whatever reason I am ready to make a fresh start with these handy little nucs. Perfect for my apiary. All Medium 8 Frame Brushy Mountain Equipment. Love you guys.

split and spackled inner cover
Nuc would have been great but inner cover arrived split and it looks like someone tried to spackle the split. Will not use this in my hive! Only a 2 because of the hassle factor of having to make my own inner cover.

The nuc kit that has all the features I was looking for in one place
Ive looked at all of the nuc kits with other companies and this one has all the features I was looking for:
1 Screened bottom board
2 Top cover with notch for upper entrance
3 Slide in board beneath bottom board for mite counts
4 Metal roof
5 Medium or western depth
Went together easily and well.
Love this hive, plan to buy more just which shipping was not so high.

Just almost nice.
The inner cover is too tight to the nuc body so an upper entrance can barely be used. You can hardly remove the mite count board it is so tightly squeezed in - certainly not without removing all the components so you can turn it upside down and wrestle it out from under the bottom board. THE ENTRANCE REDUCER IS A SOLID BLOCK OF WOOD. Assembly is fairly easy but they all dont always butt tightly against the joints, even with nailing them down tight.
I bought four of these, they are easy to put together, joints are nice and tight.
