Used, but well maintained, this nicely finished .58 caliber percussion Hawken halfstock was offered by Ozark Mountain Arms. This sturdy Hawken rifle will serve you well. Stocked in dense American black walnut, stained with a golden brown undertones, and trimmed in traditional iron furniture. The percussion lock was made by L&R with the hammer patterned from a antique example. The trigger reach is 13-3/4" and this .58 caliber rifle weighs 8.8 pounds.

The 33" barrel is one inch octagon, .58 caliber cut rifled with eight lands and grooves with a slow twist for a tightly patched round ball. The top flat of the barrel is marked MTN. ARMS INC OZARK MO USA at the breech. Except for the maker's name, there are no other markings. The bore is bright and clean, it has been well maintained.

The low gloss varnish finish is smooth and nice. The barrel and all iron trim are browned to a smooth chocolate brown tone, a non-glare finish, but without any trace of microscopic pitting sometimes seen on very heavily browned guns. Not shiny, the brown is rich and even. Notice that the late style Hawken triggerguard, unlike the early grip rails that lies flat against the wrist. Two simple iron ramrod pipes secure the hickory ramrod with jagged brass tip. The rear sight sits 9" from the breech and the front sight is 1-1/4" behind the muzzle. Two iron keys, surrounded by iron escutcheons, secure the barrel to the stock. The iron wedge keys can be removed simple finger pressure. The keys have capture slots, but the pins have never been installed to prevent the keys from being completely withdrawn from the stock.

Shown from the top, the long tang hooked breech plug is fitted with two tang bolts that engage the trigger plate, another correct Hawken feature. The breech plug is hooked to the tang. Push the two barrel wedge keys open, withdraw the ramrod, and the barrel will lift and unhook from the tang, instantly, without tools, for easy cleaning after a day of shooting. You will appreciate this ease of maintenance as much as the mountain man of old. Study the above view, and notice how the cheek is angled to recoil away from your face, another ingenious feature found on better Hawken rifles. Note the nice figure in the wood.

The bottom view reveals the iron toeplate with beaver tail finial. The toeplate is retained with two iron screws, fitted so that their slots align with the barrel, when fully seated. Look closely, and you will see that the iron triggerplate is quite long, a secret advantage of the Hawken rifle, making the wrist very strong. The lock panels taper widest at the front in late percussion rifle fashion. A single lock bolt retains the lock, recessed into a tear drop shaped iron sideplate inlay. The classic beaver tail cheekpiece is a standard feature on halfstock Hawken rifles. A large semi-buckhorn rear sight, and silver blade front sight in a copper base, are both correct and well done.

This early L&R percussion conversion lock has been fitted to this rifle. Polished inside, the well tempered parts include a strong mainspring, stirrup link, and a fly detent to allow set triggers. The lock is browned to match the barrel. The percussion hammer is modeled after a original Hawken in Art Ressel collection.These double lever double set triggers by L&R 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.

Lightly used, the stock shows very little evidence of handling marks, dents, or dings. The brown finish does not have any heavy wear typical of normal use and cleaning. The bore is clean and bright, ready to shoot. This nice Hawken rifle would be ideal for your late fur trade impression. Own this nice rifle today!
