The area around Bedford, Pennsylvania, produced some uniquely beautiful rifles, reminiscent of their flintlock ancestors. The Vincent family of Ohio produced a beautifully simple rifle of the same design for nearly 70 years. The southern mountains were famous for their iron mounted ”Tennessee” Rifles and the southern ”poor boy” style rifles. Probably the most famous was the Hawken rifles produced by Jacob and Samuel Hawken of St. Louis, Missouri. These and other ”plains rifles” brought down the larges game of the Rocky Mountain area.
