Tennessee Rifle by Jeffrey Tebay

Jeffrey Tebay is a rifle maker from Western Pennsylvania who brought one of his hand made Tennessee rifles to the 18th Century Artisans Show. This rifle is .40 cal and features hand forged iron furniture throughout. Jeffrey has thoughtfully and carefully expended the effort required to craft a patina that suggests centuries of hard but respectful use.

Notable for slim, tasteful lines, this rifle also features two cleverly executed repairs - one with copper wire in the butt and a long forged iron piece riveted in place to repair the ramrod hole which also doubles as a wear plate.
