This left Hawken halfstock rifle is stocked in curly maple and trimmed in iron furniture. The lock and traditional iron furniture are browned to a smooth even brown. Assembled around a .54 caliber Green Mountain straight octagon barrel, this plains rifle will be ideal for large game hunting, or silhouette match use. Trigger reach is 14-1/4", to fit a 6" or taller shooter. This halfstock plains rifle weighs 9.9 pounds. Recoil should be modest, thanks to the weight of the rifle.

The .54 caliber 34" Green Mountain 1" straight octagon rifle barrel is cut rifled with a caliber appropriate 1 in 70" twist, ideal for tightly patched round balls. The bore is mirror bright and has been well maintained. Green Mountain barrels are machined from high quality American made bar stock. All barrels are drilled from solid stock, reamed to a high degree of smoothness, then optically checked for straightness. Very close tolerances are maintained. The barrel is fitted with a thick brass blade front sight with large dovetail base. A semi buckhorn rear sight is dovetailed 9-1/4" ahead of the breech.

The curly maple stock has a warm brown tone that nicely displays the darker stripes of figure in the stock. The stock has a few small handling marks with a chip is visible near the end of the right side of the tang, as well as a repair on the toe of the stock, and some brown filler visible behind the forend cap. The lock, buttplate, breech plug & tang, and forend cap are finished to a dark brown. The smooth chocolate brown finish of the barrel, has a slightly matte tone to eliminate any glare or shine from the hand draw-filed barrel. The octagon corners are crisp and square.

The long tang of the slanted hooked breech strengthens the wrist. The hooked breech allows the barrel to be dismounted for cleaning without wetting the stock. Two keys retain the barrel. Neither key is captured and both keys have been bent to draw the barrel tight with the stock. The keys need to be reinstalled in the same position and orientaiton. Both keys are longer than necessary with the ends protruding well past the escucheon plates. Remove the keys with as small brass or hardwood drift, and withdraw the ramrod, before lifting the barrel from its mortise. A stainless steel 1/4-28 nipple for #11 cap, is fitted to the hooked snail breech.

The iron toeplate protects the toe, ending in the traditional beaver tail finial. The trigger bar, anchored to the long tang with two tang bolts, supports and re-enforces the wrist. Hawken rifles quickly became famous for reliability in the Rocky Mountains. The forend is fitted with a browned iron forend cap, and browned iron ramrod entry pipe. The 7/16" diameter tapered hickory ramrod is well finished, with an brass tip at front, threaded 10-32 to accept your cleaning jag or patch worm. The single lock bolt, and tear drop escutcheon around it, are classic features of a halfstock Hawken plains rifle, from the 1835 - 1845 era.

Ron Long, of Denver, recreated this T. Gibbons Hawken percussion lock, for the Green River Rifle Works of Roosevelt, Utah. Skillfully assembled and tuned by R. E. Davis, this is the correct Hawken lock for this fur trade era percussion rifle. the well tempered parts include a strong mainspring, stirrup link, and a fly detent to allow set triggers.

R.E. Davis double lever double set triggers fire set or unset, for target match shooting, or cold weather hunting with gloved fingers. Turn the set screw, between the two triggers, inboard, until the rear trigger is disabled. After hunting, return the screw to its normal position, and adjust it to make your set trigger as strong or as feather light as you prefer, within the limits of safe use.

The balance point is just ahead of the rear sight. The nearly 10 pound weight will make this rifle very steady when aimed offhand. Rest shooting is ideal, since the heavy weight absorbs recoil. The 100 yard and 130 yard Buffalo X-Sticks Match targets are not far away for this big .54 caliber round ball. Order it for a ten day visual inspection. You will be delighted.
