This used short .54 flint fullstock rifle is stocked in maple, and fitted with an L&R flint lock. The traditional iron furniture has been fire-blued, and the stock is decorated with brass and iron brads. The CVA Hawken barrel is bright, but does have a small area of very light pitting near the muzzle. This big caliber, short rifle is perfect for your next big game hunt in thick brush. The handy little rifle weighs in at 7.4 pounds and has a trigger reach of 14" making it well suited for today's average to larger size shooter.

The one inch straight CVA Hawken octagon barrel is 27" length. The .54 caliber bore is bright, but does some light pitting mostly near the muzzle. We cannot feel these pits when we run a cleaning patch down the bore. The barrel is finished to a smooth chocolate brown. The post blade front sight has been dovetailed 1" behind the muzzle. A flat top rear sight is dovetailed 6" ahead of the breech, we note it is installed opposite of the traditional direction. The breech end of the barrel is decorated with two bands of border engraving. The muzzle is decorated with punched dots. The right oblique flat is marked with various Spanish proof marks near the breech. The left oblique flat is marked Connecticut Valley Arms, Inc. / Black Powder Only .54 Cal. / Spain. It is also marked HA$KEN near the breech. The "w" has been stamped over with a "$."

The maple stock is finished to medium brown, and is decorated with small brass and iron brads that have been filed flush with the wood. A straight flat brass buttplate is fitted to the buttstock. The rear of the buttstock is highlighted with iron brads. The right side of the buttstock has a Christian Cross made from the iron brads. Both sides of the wrist are decorated with small brass brads. The top view shows the straight tang with single tang bolt that passes through to engage the trigger plate below. The barrel is retained to the forearm with two steel pins.

Our bottom view shows no toe plate has been fitted to protect this delicate area of the stock while loading. The entire length of the toe in decorated with iron brads. The triggerguard has been fire-blued and is mounted with pins. We note the rear pin was misdrilled and has been plugged. The triggerguard stands proud of the wood in the front and rear. There are some filler pieces of wood around the front of the triggerguard to fix inletting gaps. Further up, the forearm of this short rifle has been decorated with incised scroll carving. The wooden ramrod is fitted with a steel tip and a .54 caliber cleaning jag is installed on the end of the ramrod. We note it extends 1/4" past the muzzle and we were unable to unscrew the jag from the ramrod tip. We recommend our #RAMROD-C-29-10 to better service this rifle. No muzzle cap has been fitted on this rifle to help protect the end grain of the stock. Our back view shows the square cheek piece. The two lock bolts pass directly through the stock without the use of sideplates.

This fullstock flint rifle is fitted with L&R's best Ashmore flint lock. Notice the waterproof pan with drains on either side. The frizzen spring has a roller bearing, for fast lock action. The lock plate has been engraved with a scroll pattern, and the entire lock has been fire-blued. We note there is a chip at the front of the lock panel, and another chip along the bottom near the tail. The stainless steel vent liner is perfectly centered over the pan, correctly positioned to find the hottest center of the ignition flash. The single trigger provides a smooth release of the lock.

This short fullstock rifle is ready for your next big game hunt. This big caliber, handy rifle will be perfect to carry into the deep woods or thick brush. 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.
