This rifle was officially adopted by the British Government on July 4th, 1776. It was the first breech loading rifle mass produced in history and could have changed the outcome of the American Revolution. If not, it surely would have changed the outcome of the War of 1812. It failed to do so because Major Patrick Ferguson was killed at the Battle of Kings Mountain by Tennessee's Overmountain men.
Many re-enactors and historians have asked us to locate the rifles.
The "Tennessee Chronicles" has located the rifles with presentation cases. They are firing replicas that are historically correct and will be invaluable to educators and historic sites' living history exhibits.
