Transitional Kentucky Rifle
The First Truly American Firearm

In the 1700s a new rifle was developed in Pennsylvania to meet the needs of a nation which was truly perched on the frontier. "Although it had its limitations in design and ornamentation, it was extremely accurate and very satisfactory for killing game at great distances."

Because the gunsmiths who settled in Pennsylvania were trained in central Europe, the "Jaeger" influence is very apparent in the early frontier rifles.

The "new rifle" had a maple wood fullstock, a long octagonal barrel (40" or longer), a smaller bore (50 calibre or smaller, the Jaeger is traditionally 60 to 75 calibre), and in the buttstock a cavity covered by a hinged brass plate. This gun evolved into the long, slender "Golden Age Pennsylvania Rifle" we all know and love.

Here at Pecatonica we feel that this fine rifle has not received the attention from modern gun builders that it deserves.  Therefore we have brought out our Transitional Kentucky stock in 98% inletted form for those who wish to reproduce this fine historic piece. We have selected components for this rifle which reflect the period.
