Stocked in curly maple with narrow stripes of figure, this halfstock percussion rifle is an ideal rifle for your late Fur Trade impression. This classic halfstock Hawken rifle is trimmed with traditional Hawken iron furniture. The 34" straight octagon barrel, and iron trim are finished to a lightly aged brown. This nice Hawken rifle is used, in an excellent well maintained condition, and is signed by contemporary builder Mike Roby. With an overall weight of 9.6 pounds and a trigger reach of 13-1/2" this rifle is properly setup to accommodate today's average size shooter.

The .54 caliber 1" straight octagon 34" barrel gives this rifle a modest weight. The cut rifled bore has seven lands and grooves with a 1 in 66" twist for a patched round ball. Grooves are cut .016" deep, with round bottom rifling. Rice Muzzle Loading Rifle Barrels are set between centers and milled octagonal, insuring a centered bore, concentric with the exterior, with no "run-out". Each barrel is stress relieved in an atmosphere controlled electric furnace, to eliminate work hardening or barrel warp, and to dampen harmonic vibrations or barrel whip.

After the rifling has been cut, each bore is "ball burnished". A carbide bore-sizing die is pulled through the barrel, to insure bore dimension uniformity, eliminating any tight or loose spots inside the barrel. This critical procedure leaves the top of the lands smooth and polished, equaling the traditional lead lapping procedure. Rice barrels are Match grade quality, with bench rest capability. Rice barrels do not require lapping or extensive shooting to break-in. A silver blade front sight set in a brass base is dovetailed 2" behind the muzzle. A semi-buckhorn rear sight is dovetailed 8-1/2" ahead of the breech. The top flat of the barrel is signed M. Roby and the left oblique flat is marked 45.

Stocked in maple the wood has been stained to a mellow brown tone. The maple has narrow bands of tightly spaced figure over the length of the stock. The stock has a lovely hand rubbed oil finish that gives the rifle a semi-gloss appearance. The iron furniture is browned to a smooth patina finish to give it the appearance of a well used rifle. Our top view of the rifle shows off the narrow comb of the gun and the slender wrist, which is dominated by the long tang of the hooked breech. The two tang bolts hold the long breech plug tang in position, the slots are neatly aligned. The hooked breech of the rifle allows for the barrel to be easily removed, facilitating fast and easy cleanings. To remove the barrel, withdraw the ramrod, put the lock at half cock, drift the wedge keys past the underlugs and the barrel can be lifted out for easy cleaning. The keys are cut with capture slots, and the pins have been installed to prevent loss in the field.

From below the toeplate and triggerguard of the rifle can be seen. The iron toeplate is retained by two small screws and serves to protect that delicate area of the stock where the wood would come into contact with the ground when loading and cleaning. The long trigger plate is well fitted, this style trigger plate is one of the most difficult to inlet. The triggerguard is mounted directly to the triggerplate. The two tang bolts drop down from above to engage the bar below, holding the assembly in position. In addition to holding the tang and trigger in place, the bolts also serve to reinforce the wrist of the rifle, giving the Hawken guns their famous strength and durability. A small cross is engraved in the tail of the trigger bar.

The 7/16" wooden ramrod is retained by three ramrod pipes, one entry and two forward. The pipes have been browned to match the other furniture on the rifle. A iron ramrod tip has been installed on the rod, it is threaded 10-32 to accept your loading and cleaning attachments. The single lock bolt that passes through a small escutcheon plate and the stock to engage the lock on the opposite side. Further to the rear is the classic beaver tail style cheek that is commonly found on Hawken rifles, designed to angle the felt recoil away from the shooters face.

This Hawken percussion halfstock rifle is fitted with a L&R lock. Sam Hawken and other makers used these locks on Plains rifles, Ohio rifles and late longrifles, during the later percussion era of 1845 to 1885. Thomas Gibbons of St. Louis made and signed many those locks. Note the square inside corner at the front of the lock plate, a late feature. The breech is currently fitted with a nipple for a musket cap.

The L&R double lever double set triggers are properly tuned to only fire from the set or unset position. You can cock the lock before or after setting the triggers. Turn the set screw, between the two triggers, inboard to lighten the triggers and adjust it to make your set trigger as strong or as feather light as you prefer, within the limits of safe use. The lightest adjustment we recommend to the set triggers is to turn the screw inboard until the triggers fire, then back the adjustment screw off one full turn.
