Tennessee

Our Tennessee Rifle continues to be a favorite since its introduction in 1977. It is built in a sleek and slender early Tennessee style. A full build, in the white or kit can be ordered with a rifled or smooth barrel for our left- or right-hand customers.

Southern

Southern

TVM's Southern follows general designs from the South. While similar to the Tennessee, the stock of the Southern is a bit wider with a less curved butt plate. A full build can be ordered with a rifled or smooth barrel for our left- or right-hand customers.

Early Virginia

Early Virginia

Our Early Virginia was introduced in the early 80's and was instantly appreciated by those who emulate the ways and times of the French and Indian War, or those years prior to our Revolutionary War. The thicker stock design with its gently curved butt plate is said to be comfortable, especially in the larger calibers. A full build, in the white or kit can be ordered with a rifled or smooth barrel for our left- or right-hand customers.

Late Lancaster

Late Lancaster

Our Late Lancaster reflects the general characteristics found in the area of Lancaster Co, PA. This style is often built with additional options such as a patch box, inlays, carving, and engraving. A full build, in the white or kit can be ordered with a rifled or smooth barrel for our left- or right-hand customers.

Iron Pennsylvania

Iron Pennsylvania

Over the years we received many requests the graceful lines of a Pennsylvania coupled with iron to serve a more utilitarian purpose. In 2000, we introduced the TVM Iron mounted Pennsylvania. We designed this rifle with a York County style stock and furniture pattern but with a smaller wrist and shorter butt plate. A full build, in the white or kit can be ordered with a rifled or smooth barrel for our left- or right-hand customers.

Leman

Leman

The TVM Leman Rifle is based on the design of Plains Rifles from the Western Fur Trade era. A full build, in the white or kit can be ordered with a rifled or smooth barrel for our left- or right-hand customers.

Fowler

Fowler

Our Fowler is based on early American Fowler designs. It fits the periods from the French and Indian War to the end of the Fur Trade Era. A full build, in the white or kit can be ordered with a smooth barrel for our left- or right-hand customers.

Tulle

Tulle

The TVM Tulle lines and style are similar to the Tulle Fusil de Chasse (hunting gun). These French hunting guns which were assumed to be without frills were likely among thousands of four main types of Tulles brought in by canoe and often traded or given to the Indians in the late 17th and early 18th centuries. A full build, in the white or kit can be ordered with a smooth barrel for our left- or right-hand customers.
