Traditional Hawken Ramrod Pipes,
round, for 7/16" rod,
wax cast brass or iron
Shown in side view, and top view, these ramrod pipes are round, with decorative rings at ends, for 7/16" ramrod, in your choice of brass or iron (steel), for fullstock or halfstock.

Iron pipes, and iron furniture, are the correct traditional choice for Hawken rifles. Other Plains rifles were often trimmed in brass.

Our entry pipe (where rod enters the wood) has an integral skirt. The pipe body is 1-1/2" length, about 3" overall, including the skirt. Your choice of wax cast brass or steel. Use our #PIN-3/32" steel dowel pin for mounting the entry pipe on a fullstock or halfstock rifle. Or, cut off the mounting lug and install this pipe using our #SCREW-5-40-F flat head 5-40 threaded machine screw, from inside the barrel channel on later percussion halfstock rifles.

Our forward pipe, with lug for pin, is 1-1/2" overall length. Made for a fullstock rifle (with wood extending to muzzle), most rifles use two forward pipes. A few extra long rifles use three forward pipes. Use one, or sometimes two #PIN-3/32 steel dowel pins, to retain a brass or iron pipe.

Our forward pipe, without lug, mounts to the rib of a halfstock rifle. File a flat on the pipe, and a matching flat into the rib. Cut the rib deep enough to allow the ramrod to slide smoothly down the inside of the rib, and through the pipe. Tin both flats with solder, cool, clamp in place, then re-heat to sweat solder the two flats together. Wipe off excess solder, using steel wool, while molten. We recommend using our #SOLDER-SB Stay-Brite extra strong solder and flux.

Fullstock rifles, with wood to the muzzle, require one entry pipe, and two forward pipes with pin lugs. Order three mounting pins. Extra long fullstock rifles may use three forward pipes.

Halfstock rifles, with metal underrib to the muzzle, require one entry pipe, and two forward pipes without lugs. Order one mounting pin or one mounting screw, plus solder and flux. Extra long halfstock rifles may use three forward pipes.
