Here we present a later percussion J&S. Hawken marked iron mounted
full-stock rifle with a new, never used 15/16th X 38 inch Green Mountain
54 caliber barrel in a fairly plain but sturdy maple stock.
The lock copies one used by the Hawkens, with engraving and a handsome hammer. The breech is classic Hawken, with long tang double bolted through the wrist to the long-bar double-set trigger and slanted hooked breech. The tacks copy a pattern seen on an original. Maybe it once belonged to the Ute warrior chief Ouray.
