Muzzleloader Styles

TVM offers 8 different muzzleloader styles. Each pictured below with a brief description. Click on an image for more information on that style.

Tennessee Rifle

Tennessee Rifle

TVM's Tennessee Rifle still sets the standards just like it has since it was introduced in 1977. Here is a truly handmade and assembled muzzleloading rifle built with the finest components available and offered at a reasonable price. Our Tennessee Rifle is based upon early Tennessee styling. The result is a good looking, well-built rifle to fit almost anyone's budget - especially those shooters who want the most performance for their money.

Southern Rifle

Southern Rifle

TVM's Southern Rifles are just that - rifles that follow a general design of rifles from the South. These differ from the Tennessee Rifle in both appearance and character, and the stock design is very different when compared to our Tennessee Rifle. The Poor-boy Southern Rifle can be built in .32 to .58 caliber with standard barrel lengths of 36" or 42". It is standard with a Siler Lock and double set triggers. All the metal parts are browned and stocks are oil-finished.

Early Virgina Rifle

Early Virgina Rifle

The TVM Early Virginia Rifle was introduced in the early 1980's and it was instantly appreciated by the growing number of primitive shooters who like to emulate the ways and times of the French and Indian War, or those years prior to our Revolutionary War. The stock design with its gently curving buttplate is said to be one of the more comfortable guns to shoot, especially in the larger calibers where recoil can be a factor.

Late Lancaster Rifle

Late Lancaster Rifle

The Late Lancaster Rifle does not copy or represent any particular rifle or builder style from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, but does reflect the general characteristics found on rifles from that area. The Late Lancaster Rifle is available with either brass or German Silver furniture.

Iron Pennsylvania

Iron Pennsylvania

In response to many requests from our customers, we introduced our Iron Mounted Pennsylvania Rifle in 2000. There were many of you who liked the graceful look of the Pennsylvania Rifles but wanted something that could be built in iron furniture. We use a York County style stock and furniture pattern. This rifle is a little smaller in the wrist and height of the buttplate.

Leman Rifle

Leman Rifle

The TVM Leman Rifle is a true Plains Rifle from the Western Fur Trade era. Several options are available to personalize this rifle to your individual taste and needs. The standard Leman can be built in steel or brass furniture or mixed as were some of the originals. The stock will be plain maple, cut you your length of trigger pull, right or left hand and with a Siler mountain percussion lock. The Leman comes complete with nosecap, 3 ramrod pipes, lock bolt plate and toe plate.

Fowler

Fowler

Our Fowler is just that, an early American Fowler. It is not a copy of any particular gun, but is a dandy for upland hunting. It meets all the requirements for Trade Gun matches at rendezvous. It is built in 20 gauge only, with our special straight barrel. The TVM flintlock Fowler comes ready for shooting with patched round ball or birdshot. This is a very popular and dependable gun. It fits the periods from the French and Indian War to the end of the Fur Trade Era.

Tulle (Fusil de Chasse)

Tulle (Fusil de Chasse)

The TVM Tulle is not an exact replica of any specific Tulle. The lines and style portray a Tulle hunting gun instead of a military version. There were thousands of Tulles fusils shipped to New France in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. According to "Frontier Guns" by T.M. Hamilton, there were two types of them built.
