Description


The Traditions™ Deluxe Percussion Kentucky Rifle Kit offers hunters, shooters and muzzleloader enthusiasts alike a great opportunity to build their own piece of American history. The original Kentucky Rifle featured a flintlock ignition, however, this variation of the rifle features a percussion ignition for easier use out in the field. The rifle that would become known as the “Kentucky Rifle” was first crafted during 1730 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and saw use by hunters and frontiersmen for decades. The Kentucky Rifle would even see use during combat throughout the French and Indian War as well as the American Revolutionary War. The Kentucky Rifle was one of the first commonly used rifles in America during the mid to late 1700s and is one of the most popular reproduction rifles in circulation today.

Traditions has crafted the Deluxe Percussion Kentucky Rifle Kit to be an accurate representation of the classic rifle and have integrated key features and upgrades to enhance the utility and performance of the muzzleloader for hunters and shooters alike.

Beginning with the stock the Deluxe Kentucky Rifle features a beautiful hardwood two-piece stock that comes bleached and ready to accept the stain of your choice. The furniture on the stock is composed completely of brass including the nose plate, ramrod barrels, stock connecting plate, trigger guard, patch box and butt plate. The brass furniture in tandem with the hardwood stock gives the rifle a classic historical look that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional for use in the field once completed.

The .50 caliber barrel of the rifle measures 33.5 inches and comes as an unfinished carbon steel barrel that will accept either a blueing or browning process to protect the exterior of the barrel from rust and corrosion. The rifling is set at a 1:66 twist rate that is ideally suited for shooting .50 caliber patched lead round balls and offers great accuracy out to 100 yards.

In addition to the great features already listed the Traditions™ Deluxe Percussion Kentucky Rifle Kit features a case hardened percussion ignition assembly, authentic wooden ramrod, fixed blade iron sights, and an upgraded double set trigger configuration. The double set trigger configuration allows the user to engage the ignition with either a standard trigger pull by simply pulling the front trigger or by first pulling the second “set” trigger which dramatically decreases the pull weight of the front trigger creating a hair-trigger.

The Kentucky Rifle created a lasting legacy of dependability and accuracy that has been passed down throughout the generations and continues to this day in the Traditions™ Deluxe Kentucky Rifles. Own your own piece of American history by adding the Deluxe Kentucky Rifle to your collection today.

NOT A DISPLAY GUN

Everything went well until time to stain the stock and forestock. This is not display quality! When stain is applied there are, best I can explain, "streaks" that do not take stain. Leaves white, unstained, like "feathers" in the wood.
Very disappointed in the results.

Deluxe Kentucky Rifle Kit

This kit arrived in a timely manner. Kit was complete and the instructions were very helpful in finishing the rifle. Just be patient and don’t get in a hurry to get it done. Would recommend Traditions Kits all day long. Muzzle-loader.com personal we’re very helpful and easy to deal with.

Looks great

Unfortunately I haven't assembled yet I bought it to do during my recovery from a surgery. But the parts a wood looks great this isn't my first kit and won't be my last. Compared to the ones I did it looks just as good as any I've seen even the higher priced ones. I recommend this kit.

Deluxe Kentucky kit

Very little wood removing required. Opening in stock and forearm for barrel to set into needed most sanding for barrel to fit. I super glued a strip of sand paper along bottom side of a 9” long board for sanding inside rail so barrel fits into stock without forcing.

Meets expectations

Great kit. Needs quite a bite of tedious fitting, but that’s the fun of building the kit. For the price and the customer service you can’t beat it! Hope it is as fun to shoot as it is building it.
