St Louis Hawken

This Hawken rifle was assembled using parts from the Hawken Shop. All castings were made from an original Hawken Rifle. The Barrel was made by Ed Rayl and is a 1 1/8"x1" straight taper 54 cal x 34" long. The lock plate was cast from an original Gibbons, I do not know whose internal parts were used but they are very well done. The sear rotates on a set of pins and the screws in the bolster are shouldered so the tumbler and the sear do not get pinched or bind. A very well done lock. All the furniture has been rust blued and lightly rubbed back. The rifle is new with 10 rounds fired for sighting purpose.

Left hand .54 cal. full stock Hawken by John Bergmann

Left Hand .54 ca. Walnut full stock Hawken by John Bergmann of Granville Tn. Gitz 37" tapered 1 1/8 to 15/16" .54 cal. barrel, L&R lock with a very short throw, W. Morgan double set triggers, American Black Walnut stock, 2 piece brazed butt plate. Length of pull is 14". I received this rifle from John in March of 2011. Buyer pays actual shipping cost. I'm starting to reduce the size of my collection. This rifle is in excellent condition inside and out. I've had it out to the range 3 times and have fired it less than 40 times. I returned it to John and had him replace the long bar rear sight with a more standard Hawken type sight. The other just didn't look right on the this rifle. John plugged the old dove tail and it gives the rifle kind of an old original look to it. I have plenty of pictures so contact me if you are interested. I will pay shipping to the lower 48 states and some of the shipping to Alaska.
