This replica of a halfstock Hawken rifle is neatly fitted and finished. The rifle is stocked in curly maple and trimmed in browned iron furniture with a pewter forend cap. The lock is a Ron Long design, the double lever double set triggers are by Lee Paul. The rifle is unsigned as to a maker, and otherwise unmarked on the barrel. We note the hooked breech lug and tang are pinned together currently into a rigid breech. Trigger reach is 14" and the rifle weighs 10.8 pounds.

The 1-1/8" straight octagon .50 caliber 31" barrel has a bright well maintained bore rifled with eight lands and grooves. The dark brown finish around the nipple and at the heel of the buttplate would indicate that this rifle has seen little if any use. Those areas are typically the first to display wear on a browned rifle from firing and cleaning. The barrel is fitted with a semi buckhorn rear sight dovetailed 7-1/2" ahead of the breech. The rear sight has been filed to height and width on the square notch. These surfaces are bright. The front sight is a 0.080" thick nickel silver blade with a copper base dovetailed behind the muzzle. The front sight appears to be hand made and is not a standard dovetail size.

The rifle is stocked in curly maple that displays attractive figure over the full length of the stock. The coloration of this rifle does have a greenish undertone, which you often find on rifles that were stained with Chromium trioxide during the 1970's. The wood has a few scattered handling marks. Metal to wood fit is excellent with well fitted parts that are finished flush with the stock. The screws on the buttplate, tang, triggerplate, and escutcheons are all fitted with the slots aligned. The long iron tang of the hooked breech strengthens the wrist. Two wedge keys retain the barrel. Made in early Hawken style, they are a bit more narrow than later keys used on halfstock rifles, and they resemble the narrow keys used on fullstock Hawken rifles. The keys are not captured and they are individually fitted. Return them to the same position when installing them. The barrel channel on this rifle is bedded, which is visible on the left hand side of the barrel channel as a very thin line, as well as when the barrel is removed. The breech and tang are currently pinned together into a "rigid" breech. The new owner can decide to remove the pin.

The traditional iron toeplate protects the toe, ending a beaver tail finial. 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. The forend is fitted with a pewter forend cap, the forend cap has a few marks in it. The stock is fitted with an iron ramrod entry pipe. The snugly fitted tapered hickory ramrod is well finished, with a brass tip threaded 8-32 at front. The single lock bolt, and brass tear drop escutcheon around it, are classic features of a halfstock Hawken plains rifle, of the early era. All the screw slots are aligned with the barrel, a nice touch. The side panel of the breech has a small notch for screw head clearance on the screw used to fill the cross channel of the breech plug. The beaver tail shaped cheek piece adds comfort for a right hand shooter, while aiming this rifle

Notice the late percussion lock by Ron Long. The lock plate and hammer have been neatly hand engraved with scroll designs. This lock has a slimmer hammer and slightly different internals than the Ron Long designed Jim Bridger lock used on GRRW Jim Bridger Hawken rifles. The well tempered internal parts include a strong mainspring, stirrup link, and a fly detent to allow set triggers. Double lever double set triggers by Lee Paul 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. The breech is fitted with a 1/4-28 threaded steel nipple. This nipple requires a slender wrench to access with the tight clearances. We suggest our wrench #NW-170.
