Our Assessment: This is a really nice black powder squirrel or small game rifle! Mountain Man re-enactors and Rendezvous fans will appreciate this one; patterned after Crockett’s half-stocked “Old Betsy”, it retains the slim lines and graceful handling of the great man’s small game rifle. The blue finish is deep and rich, the brass accents it nicely; this would make a great wall hanger, but Davy Crockett’s rifle was meant to shoot! The long barrel and clear sights will aid in this. If you have a hankering for a good percussion rifle, this one should fill the bill!
