Used, this percussion Santa Fe Hawken half-stock rifle was built by Aldo Uberti & Co. The rifle is stocked in walnut and is trimmed in iron furniture. The rifle has scattered handling marks on the stock and wear on the brown finish typical of firing and cleaning. Weighing in at 9.2 pounds the rifle has a trigger reach of 14-7/8" making it well suited for today's larger size shooter, someone over 6'0" in height with a long reach.

The barrel measures 31-1/2" in length and has dark brown finish with wear on the edges of the flats and at the breech. Bore diameter is .530" on this rifle, a .53 caliber and not a .54 as marked. The bore has some scattered light pitting visible. We recommend using a .520" swaged round ball, #Ball-520, combined with a .010" dry patch, #OX-10-50-D, lubed with our best patch lubricant, #Mink-Oil. This combination should result in good accurate shooting. The browned barrel reaches 32-1/2" from the base of the breech to the muzzle. Between the breech and the rear sight, which sits 6-3/4" ahead of the base of the breech. The rifle is stamped, A. Uberti & Co. Gardone V.T. Italy. The side flats are also marked with the serial number, calibration and various proofs. Just behind the muzzle, 2-1/2", a front sight has been installed.

The walnut stock has a warm brown coloration and is finished to a satin sheen. The rifle has seen a bit of handling and has quite a few tiny marks that will attest to this fact. Trimmed in iron furniture the buttplate heel shows some wear, which is typical on this area. The escutcheons for keys are nickel silver, as is the forend cap. Ahead of the comb, the wrist is reinforced by the long tang of the hooked breech system. Two bolts engage the tang and pass through the stock to connect with the long triggerplate below, this system sandwiches the wrist and the resulting strength makes it very hard to break. hard fall from your horse 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. Strength made the Hawken rifle famous! The factory ramrod has been replaced with a sturdy 7/16" brown hickory ramrod, with brass tip threaded to accept our 8-32 patch worm and ball puller, sold separately. The single lock bolt, and iron tear drop escutcheon, fitted flush with the side panel, are classic features of a half-stock Hawken plains rifle, from the 1835 - 1845 era.

Cherry Corners Gun Shop, of Lodi, Ohio, recreated this T. Gibbons Hawken percussion lock, for their kit, which later became the Ithaca Hawken rifle kit. Navy Arms acquired these patterns, and the Santa Fe Hawken Rifle was made by the famous Aldo Uberti, of Italy. This is a correct Hawken lock for this fur trade era percussion rifle, with a strong mainspring, stirrup link, and a fly detent to allow set triggers. Double lever double set triggers may be set, or the lock cocked, in any sequence. Triggers fire set or unset, for target match shooting, or cold weather hunting with gloved fingers.

If you are looking for a good half stock rifle consider this one. Made by a reputable company know for their reproduction cartridge guns, this Hawken rifle has been nicely produced. Although the bore is no longer perfect, it does appear to be very shootable. Stocked in walnut the .53 caliber rifle will fit your shooting and hunting needs.
