This nice .50 caliber Invest Arm Hawken percussion rifle is ready to shoot. This rifle is very similar is shape to rifles produced by Thompson Center. This factory finished rifle is stocked in European walnut, with brass furniture, and blued 28" barrel. Weight is 8.7 pounds, and with a trigger reach of 14-1/8 inches, the rifle is perfectly setup for today's typical to large man size shooter. This rifle appears unfired with some patina from long storage, and a few minor handling marks on the stock.

The factory polished blued barrel is .50 caliber, 15/16" octagon, 28" length. In very good condition the bore is clean and ready to go, with crisp rifling grooves. We recommend our .490" round ball, .015" patch, and Mink Oil tallow patch lubricant, over a charge of 70 grains of GOEX FFg black powder. The barrel is fitted with a bead front sight and elevation and windage adjustable rear sight.

The walnut stock has been finished with a satin varnish. The stock has a few small handling marks on the toe of the stock. The brass furniture has started to age to a mellow patina with some scattered darker speckling. The buttstock is fitted with a large oval capbox. The beaver tail cheek piece is shaped for a right hand shooter.

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 key past the underlug, and the barrel can be lifted from the barrel channel for ease of cleaning. Remove the 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 a oily patch. Dry and oil the exterior then reassemble the rifle.

The color case hardened percussion lock is factory engraved. The lock plate is neatly finished, inlet flush with the wood. The breech is fitted with a 6-.75mm threaded nipple. Order our #RLP-S if you need a spare. Double lever double set triggers are well adjusted, to fire set or unset. When the rear trigger is set (latched), the front trigger has a hair-trigger release. The adjustment screw between the triggers allows even finer or coarser adjustment, as desired. Or, turn the screw fully inboard, to disable the set trigger feature, when hunting in very cold weather.

Used with a bright bore and a few small handling marks on the stock. 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. Postage is your only risk, when you order any one-of-a-kind gun from Track, whether new, used, or antique.
