Tenn. Poor Boy Squirrel Rifle #K46


We get a lot of requests for small caliber, easy to build rifle kits for small game hunting and target shooting. We have put together some nice parts to offer a simple squirrel rifle for you. A 45 or 50 cal. muzzleloading deer  rifle is just a little much for small game if you expect to have anything left to put in the pot.

The Sitting Fox Poor Boy Squirrel Rifle is the ultimate in a light weight good shooting hunting gun. We know how hard it is to keep a long barreled gun waving around at the treetops trying to get the right shot.

This is also a great first gun for a wife, son or daughter. The nose weight can be reduced even further by choosing a 36" x " barrel or 40 caliber or both. The "Poor Boy" style butt can easily be shortened to any length of pull.

We have chosen the " x 42" Green Mountain barrel in 32 or 36 caliber resting in a grade A maple stock. The "Poor Boy" style keeps things simple and functional and easy to build. A nice small Siler flintlock with a simple trigger gets the job done. The trim is a nice cast steel trigger guard and two formed steel thimbles plus all the parts you will need to finish the build. There is no butt plate, side plate, entry thimble or nose cap to mess with so it's a really easy kit to assemble.


This kit is also available in a left hand version. Upgrades in curly maple are available at $25 per grade to CM-4. Walnut and cherry is available too as a $50 option.

You may add a butt plate cut to fit for $25. We can make the build even easier by inletting the lock and trigger and breeching the barrel and installing the underlugs for you for only $100 as option #1. It saves a lot of work and makes for a really easy build. The end result is a nice small game longrifle that you can have a lot of fun with and be proud of. You can add the extra pieces if you want now, or wait till later or not. In any case you'll have something nice to look at while you're waiting for those pesky critters to show up.

You may choose to have your rifle built to your specs and completely assembled in the white ready for your final wood and metal finish as option #2. Your gun will arrive in about 90 days completely assembled and functional.                                                              This can be done for $400                                                        Check out "Finishing a gun in the white" on this site for more info

You may want to order your Squirrel rifle completely finished to your specs.                  This can be done for only $500

Anyway you look at it, its a lot of bang for your buck!
