Description


The Traditions™ 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 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 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, 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™ Percussion Kentucky Rifle Kit features a case hardened percussion ignition assembly, authentic wooden ramrod, and fixed blade iron sights.

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™ Kentucky Rifles. Own your own piece of American history by adding the Kentucky Rifle to your collection today.

.50 cal percussion. Kentucky rifle

The kit was great. And you get out of it what you put into it. After all is said and done had a range day. It was great. I shot several 1" groups at 100yards.

Great project

I'd built a few muzzleloader kits years ago and the wife wanted me to put one together for her.
Only draw back is the barrel tennons should definitely be predrilled as it's quite the challenge to do without a drill press. Other than that I'm very happy with the finished product as I chose to brown the barrel and really love the look. The gun came out beautiful and is on display with my Hawken replica
