Kentucky Pistol
The Kentucky pistol, like its big brother the Kentucky rifle, was a work of art and accuracy.

The original Kentucky pistols we have seen are generally of superb balance, made of excellent wood, and with a most dependable lock.

Some of these pistols are rather ornate with relief carving and brass and silver fitting. Wire inlays were sometimes used and pistols with checkering as well as relief carving can be seen in museums and private collections.

Perhaps the most important feature of the Kentucky is the balance and the stock. Your pistol may be rather plain and you may choose to inlay a brass or silver circle in the handle, behind the tang or at the end of the butt with an initial.

The key to construction of this pistol is the fitting of wood to metal, and the fitting of the entire piece to your hand.

We would recommend building a pistol in the same type wood as your rifle stock and you might want to consider a pistol and rifle of the same calibre (particularly if its .45 or under) to avoid carrying two types of ball.
