HISTORY: Most often associated with Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett, the Kentucky rifle is uniquely American. The rifle was primarily made in Pennsylvania, with Maryland and Virginia gunsmiths contributing a fair share. It became the 'Kentucky Rifle' after the Battle of New Orleans was largely won by two thousand of them in the hands of sharpshooting frontiersmen from Kentucky. One of the first to feature a "rifled" bore, it was extremely accurate for its time, and played an integral part in the first U.S. westward expansion of the late 18th and early 19th Century. This non-firing replica is based on the long rifle used by Davy Crockett and others at the Battle of the Alamo. This classic American firearm replica is a great addition to your collection. Add a powder horn and hang it on the wall for a striking display! 59 inches long, weighs 5 pounds. Great for re-enactors, rendezvous participants and living history performers, too!
