Denying a Swahih Hadits is not an Act of Kufr

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Is denying a swahih hadits an act of kufr?  Depending on the reason, one may be mistaken or in error.  Or, one may have some justification, in which case, it is ikhtilaf and meritorious.  However, it may never be considered an act of kufr.  Why?  Because “swahih” is a grading of authenticity based on several factors.  If we were to accept this idea that disagreeing on it is an act of kufr, then would Imam Muslim (r.a.) be upon kufr for disagreeing with the grading of Imam al-Bukhari (r.a.) on several ahadits, or vice versa?  What about all the other muhadditsin?  We need to apply some logic in this.
