Hawken Pistol Ramrod Pipes,
for 1/4'' steel rod, wax cast brass or iron
Shown in side view, and top view, these ramrod pipes are round with decorative grooves, for a 1/4" steel ramrod, in your choice of brass or iron (steel) entry pipe. The forward pipe, mounted to the rib, is always iron, regardless of whether the halfstock pistol is trimmed in brass or iron furniture.

Our entry pipe (where rod enters the wood) has an integral skirt. The pipe is 1-3/4" length overall, including the skirt. Your choice of wax cast brass or steel. Use our #SCREW-5-40-F flat head 5-40 threaded machine screw, from inside the barrel channel on halfstock pistols. See our #Plan-Hawken instruction sheet.

Our forward pipe, without lug, mounts to the rib of a halfstock pistol. File a small 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 pistols, with wood to the muzzle, generally do not use a steel ramrod, but use our 3/8" English rod pipes, with a wooden rod. See #RP-ENG-E-6-I and #RP-ENG-F-6-I when building a fullstock Hawken pistol.

Halfstock pistols, with metal underrib to the muzzle, require one entry pipe, one forward pipe. Order one mounting screw, plus solder and flux.

Captured ramrods require two Hawken pistol swivel links, one swivel yoke, and one swivel link mounting screw. File a clearance notch in the rib, to clear the body of the swivel yoke, to allow the steel ramrod to nest into the rib.
