The Traditions™ Percussion Kentucky Rifle is a beautifully crafted modified replica of one of America’s most iconic muzzleloading rifles. The original Kentucky Rifle featured a flintlock ignition, however, this variation of the rifle features a percussion ignition for easier use out in the field. The rifle that would become known as the “Kentucky Rifle” was first crafted during 1730 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania and saw use by hunters and frontiersmen for decades. The Kentucky Rifle would even see use during combat throughout the French and Indian War as well as the American Revolutionary War. The Kentucky Rifle was one of the first commonly used rifles in America during the mid to late 1700s and is one of the most popular reproduction rifles in circulation today.
Traditions has crafted the Percussion Kentucky Rifle to be an accurate representation of the classic rifle and have integrated key features and upgrades to enhance the utility and performance of the muzzleloader for hunters and shooters alike.
Beginning with the stock the Kentucky Rifle features a beautiful hardwood, walnut stained and finished, two-piece stock. The furniture on the stock is composed completely of brass including the nose plate, ramrod barrels, stock connecting plate, trigger guard, and butt plate. The brass furniture in tandem with the walnut stock gives the rifle a classic historical look that is both aesthetically pleasing and functional for use in the field.
The .50 caliber barrel of the rifle measures 33.5 inches and is composed of carbon steel that has been blued to protect the exterior of the barrel from rust and corrosion. The rifling is set at a 1:66 twist rate that is ideally suited for shooting .50 caliber patched lead round balls and offers great accuracy out to 100 yards.
In addition to the great features already listed the Traditions™ Percussion Kentucky Rifle features a case hardened percussion ignition assembly, authentic wooden ramrod, and fixed blade iron sights.
The Kentucky Rifle created a lasting legacy of dependability and accuracy that has been passed down throughout the generations and continues to this day in the Traditions™ Kentucky Rifles. Own your own piece of American history by adding the Kentucky Rifle to your collection today.

Great Rifle review by Jimmie D on 10/21/2019
"First off, great price and fast delivery from Muzzle-Loaders, thanks!
Rifle fit and finish are really good for a prebuilt rifle in this price range. Not quite the wall hanger "look at my antique" heirloom quality, if you want that, then get the kit and do it yourself! Easy to clean, instructions weak (but Traditions does have a YouTube channel), plus it shot well out of the box. No sight adjustments were necessary for me, at 100 yards consistent 2" group with 70 gr of 2f. "
4 stars because I haven't fired yet review by Don Bowersox on 3/25/2019
"I've built 2 from kits (this is not s kit), fired many and killed deer with black powder...it is a very beautiful rifle..just 2 things I would prefer, a bit longer ramrod with a threaded tip for accessories..and adjustable sight option"
Spot On review by Bill on 6/18/2018
"Ordered this on a Sunday night and it was in my hands Wednesday. Price was great, 80$ cheaper than the big outdoor store(s). Out of the box it was accurate. Great gun. Instructions are a little fuzzy in areas but all in all I’m happy. I was after a functional side hammer for traditional hunting, and this nailed it. If the boss would let me I’d get another. "
Pretty Good Rifle review by Miguel E. on 5/3/2018
"I like this gun. Shoots good, looks good, feels good. Dunno if trigger is supposed to be a bit loose when uncocked but w/e. Instructions on removing the barrel could be much clearer though."

Great Rifle review by Chris on 4/20/2016
"This a great gun for the money. I'm new into the hobby of traditional muzzleloading and this was the right price point. Also, I already own the Traditions Kentucky pistol so this makes a great companion gun as all the accessories are adaptable for both. The rifle shoots great. So far no misfires and the accuracy at 50 yards was good. Fit and finish are great. It has just enough brasswork to look good but not too fancy. Exactly what I wanted. I don't need a museum piece, I just need a nice quality field shooter.
Thanks Traditions and Muzzle-loader.com."
Don't do it review by Matt on 1/1/2016
"It will fire every now and then but I've had more misfires it also destroys your cleaning stuff"
Shoots and looks good review by Alan Tuck on 10/16/2015
"Shoots and looks good"
Good shooter review by Norman Lasselle on 9/1/2015
"Finish not bad, fit not so great. Stock is short and does not fit with line of sight. I sanded on stock till the sights are lined. Now I have shot about 55 rounds and it hits where u aim and has gone bang every time. Good for the price if u want to do some wood work."
