I don't remember a Kentucky Trade Rifle in the 4th edition either, but in Bullets and Blue Grass there is the .40 cal Trade Rifle which I believe is from the KFS, so I guess this could be it.

In The Starnaman Incident there is an .80 cal musket, .80 cal horse pistol and .50 cal percussion rifle and these are from along the Mississippi River areas by various blacksmiths.

I suspect that the Trade Rifle was a scaled-down replica of the Springfield Model 1861 Rifled Musket (complete with spike bayonet)

Calibre is .40 and according to "Bullets and Bluegrass" the e-factor is 11 with solid shot and 14 with a Minie ball. It has an alleged effective range of 300m. But these things are made of soft steel and deliberately intended to wear out within 10 years, so that range is probably for newer examples.

Weight is 6kg
