Used, but well maintained, this nicely finished .58 caliber percussion Hawken halfstock was offered by Ozark Mountain Arms. This sturdy Hawken rifle will serve you well. Stocked in straight grain maple, stained with golden brown undertones, and trimmed in traditional iron furniture. The trigger reach is 13-3/4" and this .58 caliber rifle weighs 9.0 pounds.

The .58 caliber 33" barrel is one inch octagon, cut rifled with eight lands and grooves with a slow twist for a tightly patched round ball. We recommend our, #BALL-570, .570" round balls, #OX-18-50-D, .018" Ox-Yoke ticking patches, and pure #MINK-OIL patch grease for accurate shooting. The top flat of the barrel is marked OZARK MTN. ARMS at the breech and the bottom flat near the breech is stamped 1016. The bore is bright and clean, it has been well maintained. The front sight is a silver blade mounted in a brass base dovetailed 1-1/4" behind the muzzle. The rear sight is a semi-buckhorn dovetailed 8-1/2" ahead of the breech.

The maple stock is stained to a golden brown. The stock has a few handling marks and dings common on a used rifle. The barrel and all iron trim are browned to a smooth chocolate brown tone, a non-glare finish, but without any trace of microscopic pitting sometimes seen on very heavily browned guns. The finish shows bright spots on the corners and in the typical wear areas from shooting and cleaning. The buttstock has a classic Hawken crescent buttplate to engage the shooter's shoulder.

The long iron tang of the hooked breech strengthens the wrist. Two iron keys, surrounded by iron escutcheons, secure the barrel to the stock. A brass drift is recommended for removing the keys. The keys have capture slots, but the pins have never been installed to prevent the keys from being completely withdrawn from the stock.

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 keys past the underlugs, and the barrel can be lifted from the barrel channel for ease of cleaning. Remove the 1/4-28 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 traditional iron toeplate protects the toe, ending with a beaver-tail finial, a common theme on the Hawken rifle. The long trigger bar, anchored to the long tang with two tang bolts, supports and reinforces the wrist. A hard fall will probably not break this rifle, while you are hunting the foothills of the Rocky Mountains, many days by horseback and keel-boat from Sam Hawken's gun shop in Saint Louis. The forearm of the stock is fitted with an iron muzzle cap. A iron ramrod entry pipe is fitted behind the muzzle cap. The snugly fitted hickory ramrod is fitted with a brass tip at the front end, threaded 8-32 for your cleaning jag. The single lock bolt, and tear drop escutcheon around it, are classic features of a half-stock Hawken plains rifle of the early era. The beaver-tail cheek piece adds comfort for a right hand shooter, while aiming this 19th century plains rifle.

This early Davis percussion lock has been fitted to the rifle. Polished inside, the well tempered parts include a strong mainspring, stirrup link, and a fly detent to allow set triggers. The lock is browned to match the barrel. The double lever double set triggers by L&R are tuned to fire the lock set, or unset. The lock and triggers may be cocked or set in any sequence for target match shooting, or cold weather hunting with gloved fingers. You may cock the lock before or after setting the triggers.

Offered in a well maintained used condition with a few dings and handling marks, this big .58 caliber Hawken rifle will be perfect for the upcoming hunting season this Fall.
