KENTUCKY RIFLE

This old rifle, excellent in its time, was made for the U. S. Government about the year 1850, at Harper's Ferry, Va. It has a heavy steel barrel, 32 inches long, well rifled and adapted for .54 caliber cartridges. The bands, guard and butt plate are solid brass. The stock has a brass patch-box in the side for holding cleaning rags or musket caps. These arms are largely used at the present time, although their manufacture ceased many years ago.

A curious arm, labeled Kentucky Deer Rifle, in the collection of the Holland Purchase Historical Society, Batavia, N. Y., weighs 8 lbs. 15 oz., and has a barrel 42 inches long. Its total length is 58 inches. It was a flint-lock originally but changed to pill percussion lock. The lock-plate is stamped R. Hyslop, New York.
