Southern Mountain Rifle
Rifles built in Eastern Tennessee before about 1815, were the work of gunsmiths who migrated to that area from neighboring and more settled states. These gunsmiths brought the designs and procedures they had learned in the East and set to work turning out guns that met local needs using the materials provided by the land around them.

Some collectors classify these rifles as "Southern Kentuckies" although Tennessee was a part of North Carolina until it became a state in 1796.

One important difference between the "Kentucky" and the "Tennessee" was the use of iron for fittings, instead of brass. Iron was abundant in the region. The metals needed for brass were not successfully mined until the turn of the 19th Century. Silver and pewter were often used for mountings in these rifles. The silver usually came from coins circulated during this period. Walnut and maple were the favorite woods for stocks, but other woods including cherry and ash were sometimes used.

These early guns often utilized the more simple "banana style" patchbox, long barrels, wide buttplates and wide trigger guards. A very few may have included relief carving. Long tangs were common.

The general lines of these rifles are not unlike their Kentucky cousins, although the rifle is usually less ornamented and is not carved. It has a rugged simplicity and attractiveness.
