The Brown Bess was one of the most renowned flintlock muskets ever produced. Introduced during the reign of Queen Anne (1702-1714), the gun was produced for over a century and was one of the most significant firearms of the American Revolutionary War.
This French flintlock rifle, from the early 1800's, saw service on the European battlefields of the Napoleonic wars. It was used very effectively by the disciplined French infantry, who were highly trained in its use.
The name "Kentucky Rifle" is largely a misnomer - they were primarily made in Pennsylvania, although Maryland and Virginia gunsmiths contributed a fair share. The "Kentucky" name came about as a result of the Battle of New Orleans.
First designed in the early 1700s, the American Long Rifle would change the face of firearms in the US. This replica is named after the nickname it earned, the Kentucky Long Rifle, from a song titled, The Hunters of Kentucky.
