    Peter Fonda's Kentucky Hunting Rifle. A .45-caliber Kentucky pattern muzzle loading percussion rifle with handmade inlays, custom made for Peter Fonda by noted gunmaker Don King, (who handcrafted every mechanism and decorative inlay from scratch), and used by Peter in Hawken's Breed (1987). The lockwork exhibits totally original casehardening and bluing, while the rifled barrel is originally finished and artificially aged. It features a left-handed caplock and is inscribed "D. King for P. Fonda 1977," and forms a matched set with the .45 pistol and Bowie knife, also offered. The stock is a magnificent example of tiger maple and flatters all the contours of the rifle. Fired little, this would make a wonderful addition to any collection of Hollywood memorabilia or firearms. Accompanied by a color 8" x 10" photo of Peter posing with the rifle.
