Tennessee Mountain Rifle
The Tennessee Mountain rifle is truly one of the guns that won the West. These rifles were produced in the area of the Southern Mountains as settlements moved west and further away from the populated areas of the east. The rifle-makers in these areas were generally far removed from their sources of supply and so many of the "extras" (such as the brass patchbox) were eliminated and they produced rifles of classic simplicity, rugged and accurate.

These mountain rifles usually had iron fittings and some simply had a hole drilled in the butt stock for patching grease. We have seen these rifles with fittings made from horn and antler and they are an interesting contrast to their more splendid cousin - the Kentucky rifle.

Many of these rifles found their way into the hands of the people who settled the mountains and were used to harvest the hogs that had been running wild. They still are called "hog rifles" in some parts of the Smoky Mountains today. Other rifles of this type went to trappers, traders and hunters. The simplicity of the lines, as well as the ruggedness of the rifle, made the Tennessee Mountain rifle a favorite.

This gun will look particularly good if metal parts are browned and a dark stain is used for the stock.  A wood or "banana style" iron patchbox can be found on some of the early models. Cowhorn or antler will provide just a touch of authentic color and can be used for an inlay or two, or shaped for the rifle's nosecap.
