KENTUCKY FLINTLOCKImage of Kentucky Flintlock (round stock) non-firing replica Pistol model 1136L by Denix of Spain (Round Stock) 1136L by DENIX
Made by the same gunsmiths who crafted the fabled Kentucky rifles, these late 18th/early 19th Century pistols were actually made in Pennsylvania, Virginia and Maryland. The "Kentucky" name came as a result of the Battle of New Orleans, which was substantially won by two thousand riflemen from Kentucky, armed with the rifles and pistols that quickly became known by the name of their adoptive state. Famed for their accuracy, the pistols exhibited the clean, uncluttered lines of their rifle cousins. This non-firing replica has all of the features of the original, including a full length wood stock with antique blued finish barrel, frizzen and lock plate, complemented by simulated brass trigger guard stock furniture. Rotate the frizzen, cock the hammer, and pull the trigger – the hammer falls just as it did for Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett more than 250 years ago.

  During the Revolution, demoralized English officers wrote home about a new type of American-made long-barreled "rifle" backwoodsmen used with astonishing skill. When the war was won, the new government paid debts to its officers by offering land grants in untamed land. Claiming their acreage, these adventurers brought their rifles to Kentucky with them.

Near the end of the lost War of 1812, American spirits were raised when five thousand Americans, including two-thousand frontiersmen with long barreled guns, under the command of General Andrew Jackson, defeated the British in the Battle of New Orleans. A popular song called "The Hunters of Kentucky or The Battle of New Orleans" forever named America's rifle.
