Product Description

The name "Kentucky Rifle" is largely a misnomer - they were primarily made in Pennsylvania, although Maryland and Virginia gunsmiths contributed a fair share. The "Kentucky" name came about as a result of the Battle of New Orleans, which was substantially won by these rifles, in the hands of two thousand frontiersmen from Kentucky. While the design was influenced by the German Jaeger rifles and the slender English and French fowling pieces of the early 18th Century, the Kentucky is uniquely American. This non-firing version shows the graceful lines for which the Kentucky became renowned.

These collector model replica rifles are made of antique finished zinc cast metal and polished European hardwoods. This piece replicates the original in size, weight and appearance, and the parts function much like the original but is Non Firing, the screw heads are molded into the metal and cannot be removed.

These models cannot withstand misuse or excessive dry-firing and cannot be made to fire real ammunition. They come assembled and ready for display in your home or office.
