Used, this percussion Santa Fe Hawken half-stock rifle was built by Aldo Uberti & Co. for Western Arms Co. The rifle is stocked in curly maple and has been reshaped and refinished with a checkered wrist in the style of Melchert Fordney. This rifle is used with some handling marks in the finish on both the metal and maple stock. Weighing in at 8.9 pounds the rifle has a trigger reach of 14-3/4" making it well suited for today's larger size shooter, someone over 6'0" in height with a long reach.

The barrel measures 32" in length and has a chocolate brown finish. Bore diameter is .540" with a slow twist for a tightly patched round ball. The bore is bright and has been well maintained. We recommend using a .530" round ball, #Ball-530, combined with a .010" dry patch, #OX-10-50-D, lubed with our best patch lubricant, #Mink-Oil. This combination should result in good accurate shooting. The barrel is fitted with a brass blade front sight and a semi-buckhorn rear sight.

Stained a warm brown with a golden undertone, the curly maple stock displays random stripes of figure over the length of the stock. Used the rifle has a few handling marks, and small pressure dents from normal use. The wrist has been checkered with an early checkering design with broad panels and a small brass brad fitted at the center of each diamond. The checkering design is similar to the design used on antique rifles by Melchert Fordney. The barrel and most iron furniture are polished and browned and show some normal wear from firing and cleaning. The pewter forend cap has aged to a mellow patina.

The wrist is reinforced by the long tang of the hooked breech system. The two tang bolts, engage the tang and pass through the stock to connect with the long triggerplate below, this system sandwiches the wrist, reinforcing this most fragile area of the stock. The tang has the very faint 3xx One of One Thousand stamping found on the Western Arms imported rifles. From below the classic iron toeplate protects the toe, the stock has a few small dents above the protective toeplate. The sturdy 7/16" hickory ramrod is fitted with a brass tip threaded 8-32 to accept loading and cleaning accessories. The single lock bolt, and iron tear drop escutcheon, fitted flush with the side panel, are classic features of a half-stock Hawken plains rifle, from the 1835 - 1845 era. Forward two wedge keys retain the barrel, when these are removed, along with the ramrod, the barrel can be lifted out of the hooked breech for easy cleaning and maintenance.

This is a correct Hawken lock for this fur trade era percussion rifle, with a fly detent to allow set triggers. The lock plate is color case hardened, with some wear on the finish from firing and cleaning. The breech is fitted with a stainless steel 1/4-28 nipple. Order our #RST-S 1/4-28 stainless steel nipple for a replacement, or spare.

Double lever double set triggers may be set, or the lock cocked, in any sequence. Triggers fire set or unset, for target match shooting, or cold weather hunting with gloved fingers. Adjust the screw between the two triggers, inboard to reduce set trigger release pressure, our outboard to require a stronger pressure. When screwed fully inboard, the adjustment screw disables the rear trigger, so the rifle must be fired from the front trigger, which requires about a four pound pull for release. It is wise to disable the rear trigger, when hunting in very cold weather. But the set trigger can provide very light release, perhaps an ounce or two, for accurate aimed shooting during pleasant weather.

This Hawken halfstock is used with some handling marks and wear on the brown finish. The bore is bright and it has been well maintained. Order it for a ten day visual inspection. You will be delighted. Else if it does not fit you, return it in unfired condition for same-day refund.
