Stocked in maple, this classic percussion halfstock Hawken rifle is trimmed with traditional Hawken iron furniture. The 36" barrel and iron trim are rust browned, to an attractive deep matte finish which helps to eliminate reflections, glare, and mirage while sighting. A classic Hawken hooked breech and two wedge keys retain the straight octagon barrel, allowing instant take-down, for easy cleaning. This rifle was assembled by contemporary builder George Nelson, and is signed on the top flat of the barrel.

The .54 caliber Green Mountain 1" straight octagon rifle barrel is cut rifled with eight deep lands and grooves in a caliber appropriate 1 in 70" twist, ideal for tightly patched round balls. Green Mountain Muzzle Loading Rifle Barrels are machined from high quality American made bar stock, A.I.S.I. 1137 modified, stress relieved, annealed, certified rifle barrel quality steel. All barrels are drilled from solid stock, reamed to a high degree of smoothness, then optically checked for straightness. Very close tolerances are maintained

Trigger reach is 13-1/2", to fit todays average shooter. This rifle weighs 9.8 pounds.
The maple stock is stained to a whiskey tone, with gold highlights and brown depths finished to a satin egg shell finish. The stock is trimmed in iron furniture with a classic Hawken crescent buttplate that securely engages your shoulder. The forend is fitted with a poured pewter muzzle cap. This rifle has an early style flat-to-wrist trigger guard.

This percussion rifle is made to accept a sturdy 7/16" ramrod. The ramrod is fitted with a iron tip threaded 8-32 for loading and cleaning accessories.
This top view shows the long tang hooked breech. The rear sight is a semi-buck horn sight, with a wide dovetail base 8" ahead of the breech. The front sight is a tall nickel silver blade in a copper dovetail base that is fitted 1-1/2" behind the muzzle. Together, these sights work well and look right on this nice Hawken rifle. The top flat of the .54 caliber Green Mountain barrel is signed by the maker, G. B. Nelson.
Both tang screws engage the long steel trigger plate, forming a strong steel sandwich that reinforces the wrist from above and below. This was one of Jacob and Sam Hawken's secrets. If a rifle becomes broken, it will most likely be broken at the wrist, the thinnest section of the rifle stock. The triggerplate and tang reinforce the wrist, strengthening this critical area, making the Hawken rifle reliable, durable, and famous. The beaver tail toeplate protects the pointed toe while loading.
The L&R percussion Hawken lock has been browned to a smooth finish. The lock has a strong mainspring, stirrup link, and fly detent, all nice internal features. The percussion lock has a square inside corner, the lock panel gently fades up into the bolster of the lock. The straight hooked-breech is fitted with a standard 1/4-28 stainless steel nipple.

The builder notes that the lock is very tight in the mortise. He recommends loosening the forward tang screw 1/2 turn when removing the lock to avoid chipping the wood. The barrel and breech are also fitted tightly into the barrel channel and must be pushed down gently when inserting the wedge keys. The wedge keys have capture pins to avoid being misplaced.

L&R early double lever double set triggers are tuned to fire the lock set, or unset. The lock and triggers may be cocked or set in any sequence. The trigger plate is very long, extending through the wrist, accepting two tang bolts from above.
The wedge keys extend just past the opposite oval escutcheons. Notice the typical beaver tail cheek rest, double set triggers, and single lock bolt fitted to a recessed steel escutcheon, all classic features of an 1840 era Hawken rifle. It balances nicely in your hands, for offhand shooting.
