Description


The Traditions™ Deluxe Percussion Kentucky Rifle is a beautifully crafted modified replica of one of America’s most iconic muzzleloading rifles. 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 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, walnut stained and finished, two-piece stock. 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 walnut stock gives the rifle a classic historical look that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional for use in the field.

The .50 caliber barrel of the rifle measures 33.5 inches and is composed of carbon steel that has been blued 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 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.
