The American Kentucky Rifle is one of the unique art forms of colonial times. It was intended as the survival arm for the American colonies. Able to harvest a deer or bear at long range, it had a longer barrel than its European counterpart, the Jaeger Rifle. This particular rifle is a double-barrel, 45-caliber flintlock that was made by John Palm of Pennsylvania. It can be seen at the NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, Virginia.
