().End date: Kentucky Rifle Patchboxes & Barrel Marks [and] Kentucky Rifle Patchboxes: All New Volume 2 (2 volumes) Chandler, Roy F.; James B. Whisker Duncannon, PA & Bedford, PA: Valley View Offset & Old Bedford Village Press, & This book is considered the manual by which most contemporary builders base their study upon.

Written by Joe Kindig, Jr., annotated and published by George Shumway, it is a huge book and one of, if not the largest and most thorough studies available on schools of gunsmithing. This work was initially written as a pictorial of known original.

The actual name "Kentucky Longrifle"was first used in an song The Hunters of Kentucky. A typical rifle was caliber, made of curly maple, full stock andsported a 42 to 46 inch barrel. A crescent-shaped buttplate, patchboxand cheekpiece were also common and are helpful in identifying a KY/PAlong rifle.

Names like “Kentucky Rifle” and “Pennsylvania Longrifle” are synonymous with colonial Minute Men, and the Appalachian Longhunters. Daniel Boone’s “Ol’ Tick Licker,” and Davy Crockett’s “Betsy” personified the lock, stock, and barrel of this era. Finding the Blue Book value of your new and used firearms, including pistols, rifles, shotguns, airguns, and blackpowder guns is easy with the number one source of gun pricing.

This site provides values and information on firearms in a convenient online pricing guide format, and allows you to find out what your used guns are worth. Pennsylvania Longrifle Gunsmithing "Schools" If any state has just claim to the rifle it's Pennsylvania (in the stretch of land from Easton to York just south of the Blue Mountain - right here in our own backyard!); where the first important rifle-making centers were located, where more rifles were produced than any other state, and where more fine artistic decoration was.

Lehigh Valley (John Rupp II) - This rifle is patterned after the work of John Rupp II () who worked in Weisenburg Township, Lehigh County, Pennsylvania from to Often referred to as “John Rupp the younger” he is the nephew of the renowned Lehigh Valley gunmakers, Adam Herman Rupp and Johannes Rupp.

—- Capt. John G. Dillon,From his book The Kentucky Rifle. It is hard to beat John Dillon’s description of an Kentucky Rifle, the popular name for the American longrifle.

This hints at the fact that there are a lot of names for basically the same thing. There is even some disagreement as to whether you spell it longrifle or long rifle.

The R.E. Davis Company is a retailer in historical reproductions and has been one of the leaders in manufacturing muzzleloading firearm components, including locks, triggers, mounts, and accessories for over 30 years.

Under the barrel you may find a proof mark or the name of a barrel maker. Pictures of these markings would help date your rifle. In my opinion, unless the piece was made by a famous maker the above estimate is way too optomistic.

The price of a gun like this is increased by things like a nice patchbox, excellent bore, the name of a known maker.Winchester: The Gun that Won the West (Harold F. Williamson), Pistolsmithing (George C. Nonte Jr.), Kentucky Rifle Patchboxes & Barrel Marks (Roy F.
