Stocked in curly maple, this percussion halfstock Hawken is offered in new condition with a bright bore that is ready to shoot. The 33" straight octagon barrel and iron trim are rust browned and rubbed back to give an antique finish. A classic Hawken hooked breech and two wedge keys retain the barrel, allowing instant take-down, for easy cleaning. This rifle was assembled by contemporary builder Randall Greenwood, and is signed on the top flat of the barrel. Trigger reach is 14" to fit an average size shooter. This half-stock plains rifle weighs 9.0 pounds, and balances at the ramrod entry pipe.

The .54 caliber 1" wide barrel is 33" from the muzzle to the breech plug. It is cut rifled with six radius bottom grooves with a slow twist for a patched round ball. The bore is bright and is ready to shoot. The barrel exterior is finished to a smooth brown and rubbed back to give a slight antique appearance. The top barrel flat is signed R Greenwood behind the rear sight. A nickel silver blade front sight is dovetailed behind the muzzle. A semi-buckhorn rear sight is dovetailed 8-1/2" ahead of the breech. We recommend our .535" pure lead round ball, patched with .017" Ox-Yoke ticking, lubricated with Mink Oil grease or other animal fat lubricant for best accuracy.

The curly maple stock is stained to an dark brown with golden undertones to best display the figure. The buttstock has a classic Hawken crescent buttplate to engage the shooter's shoulder. The long iron tang of the hooked breech strengthens the wrist. The forend is fitted with oval escutcheon plates for the wedge keys. The wedge keys are captured to the stock to prevent loss. We note the front wedge key is loose and slides out easily. The hooked breech allows the barrel to be easily dismounted for cleaning without risk of wetting the stock with water containing black powder residue. To dismount the barrel, put the lock on half cock, withdraw the ramrod, drift the keys past the underlugs, and the barrel can be lifted from the barrel channel for ease of cleaning. Remove the 1/4-28 nipple and place the breech end of the barrel in a bucket of soapy water. Run a wet patch down and up the bore, the pumping action will flush all the fouling from the barrel. Once the bore is clean, run a dry patch down the bore to pick up any moisture followed by an oily patch. Dry and oil the exterior then reassemble the rifle.

The traditional iron toeplate protects the toe, ending in a beaver-tail finial, a common theme on the Hawken rifle. The long trigger bar, anchored to the long tang with two tang bolts, supports and reinforces the wrist. A hard fall will probably not break this rifle, while you are hunting the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, many days by horseback and keel-boat from Sam Hawken's gun shop in Saint Louis. We note there is an 1/8" gap at the front of the trigger plate. The forearm of the stock is fitted with an iron muzzle cap. An iron ramrod entry pipe is fitted behind the muzzle cap. The ramrod channel in the stock had to be mortised from the channel due to ramrod run-out when drilled. The hickory ramrod is fitted with an iron tip at the front end, threaded 8-32 for your cleaning jag. We note the ramrod extends 1" past the muzzle. The single lock bolt, and tear drop escutcheon around it, are classic features of a half-stock Hawken plains rifle of the early era. The beaver-tail cheek piece adds comfort for a right hand shooter, while aiming this 19th century plains rifle.

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. Polished inside, the well tempered parts include a strong mainspring, stirrup link, and a fly detent to allow set triggers. We note the hammer cup is very shallow. A Hot Shot stainless steel nipple is fitted. Double lever double set triggers by L&R are properly tuned to fire set or unset, for target match shooting, or cold weather hunting with gloved fingers. You may cock the lock before or after setting the triggers.

This plains rifle is new, unfired. This big bore rifle will make a great hunting gun for this upcoming season. Order it for a ten day visual inspection. You will be delighted.
