Availability: In Stock
Price: $489.00
Constructed from one of Lyman's popular kits, this pistol has been neatly finished by Steve Krolick. The barrel has been browned, the steel forend cap replaced with a pewter one. The walnut stock is correctly shaped to give a correct historical appearance, while still being in new unfired condition. The top of the barrel is stamped S. Hawken St. Louis on the top flat just ahead of the rear sight, a nice touch! This pistol has the classic 1830 era bag butt architecture with a comfortable grip, large enough for man sized hands, with enough drop and curve to make aiming as instinctive as pointing your finger.

The 15/16" octagon barrel is 8" long and finished with to a dark brown. The .50 caliber bore is rifled with six equal lands and grooves, ideal for patched round ball. All of the factory markings and Italian proof marks have been neatly draw filed smooth for a period appearance. The top of the barrel is stamped S. Hawken St. Louis in period block lettering. Iron front and rear sights are mounted to the barrel. The hooked breech, and single wedge key, allow the barrel and breech plug to be dismounted, use our #TOOL-KEY-B to drift the snugly fitted wedge key. Use our #NW-160 nipple wrench, sold separately, to remove the stainless steel nipple, when flushing the barrel. The tang has been color case hardened, along with the escutcheon plates.

The lock is color case hardened and the trigger provides a smooth release of the hammer. The side panel is fitted with a color case hardened sideplate and secured with the lock bolt. The grip rail of the brass triggerguard is mounted with two blued steel screws. The forend is fitted with a pewter forend cap, with integral ramrod hole. A 3/8" diameter ramrod serves this pistol and the hidden tip is threaded to accept 10-32 cleaning and loading accessories. Sold separately order our #PL-6-50, pistol loading rod with .50 caliber jag and ball starter, which is ideal for use with this pistol.

This will make a fine companion piece for your .50 caliber percussion Hawken, Great Plains, or Mountain rifle! 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.
