Pennsylvania LongRifle History
The Pennsylvania Rifle, misnamed the Kentucky Rifle, was developed in Lancaster by Swiss gunsmith, Martin Meylin. Meylin put spiraling grooves in the barrel, known as "rifling". The rifling made it extremely accurate up to 300 yards. The long rifle was an important tool for American frontiersmen in the 17th and early 18th centuries. The rifle put food on the table, protected homes, and helped win battles in the Revolutionary War and the War of 1812.
