The Pennsylvania Long Rifle, more commonly, but less correctly, known as the “’Kentucky Rifle” was originally designed and built in Pennsylvania in the late 1700s. These rifles were popular from the Revolutionary War to well into the 19th century. They played an integral role in the early western expansion and are most often associated with Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett. Light in weight; graceful in line; economical in consumption of powder and lead; fatally precise; distinctly American; it sprang into immediate popularity; and for a hundred years was a model often slightly varied but never radically changed.
This non-firing replica is made entirely of wood and metal. It has simulated brass fittings and it comes with a working flintlock mechanism (the hammer locks back and is released by the trigger). Overall length: 59”; Weight: 5 lbs.
