Synopsis: Notes: Reprint of an exceptional photo book. Over 650 individual views of Kentucky rifles and 175 views of Kentucky pistols, dating from 1750 through approximately the civil war era. Many of the gun stocks of these Kentucky rifles were made in Pennsylvania, Lancaster county and elsewhere. In most cases, the book provides the name of the maker, approximate date, and detailed information on both the stock and the hardware portions of the rifle. This reference is a must for the builder and collector. Please also see our other listings, Building the Kentucky Rifle and Building the Kentucky Pistol. These are "how-to" booklets for those who wish to rebuild, restore or build a vintage-style Kentucky firearm from scratch.
