An unknown maker from York County, Pennsylvania produced the original Crockett rifle in the 1780-1790 time period. There is good reason with strong evidence that it was David Crockett’s first rifle at the age of 17. David makes numerous references to the occasions when he carried his rifle before it was sold to buy a horse so he could go courting.
This example is patterned after the original currently on display at the East Tennessee History Center in Knoxville, Tennessee.
