hi there.
I have been keen for awhile to try blackpowder shooting and I am looking for a Kentucky style gun.
Does anyone have some advice as to where to buy them from?

Hayes and associates in the north island import the Pedersoli Kentucky rifle.
Or you could just get one from Dixie Gunworks or Track of the Wolf in the U.S.  good companies to deal with and freight isn`t to bad on the gear I have bought in.
Picked up my Pedersoli Kentucky off T/M but it took about 2 years of looking till one came up then 2 were listed the same week. The one I have has both the Flintlock and Caplock actions with it and you just swap them over.
If you ask around you will probably find the Hawkens style rifles are more popular for hunting and I prefer my Hawkens over the Kentucky. I have a few Blackpowder guns and just shoot roundball out of them.
