Seller's Description

Ithaca Hawken .50 Caliber Rifle

Ithaca Arms Hawken The forerunner of the Uberti Hawken rifle, but originally made in the USA by Ithaca Arms Co. This rifle is so rare that it is not even listed in the Blue Book of Modern BlackPowder Arms. This rifle is about what an 1840's Hawken rifle would look like. Probably a little late for much service in the Rocky Mountain Fur Trade era, not to mention a bit more expensive than the average trapper could have afforded. However, Jim Bridger's rifle was similar to this. It features a 32" octagonal .50 caliber barrel, double set triggers, two barrel wedges, a hooked breech, and walnut stock. The barrel, lock and furniture are blued and the escutcheon plates and nosepiece are bright. The front sight is a German silver blade set in a brass base, and the rear steel sight is fixed. The bore is bright and shiny. There is little blueing worn off the buttplate, so I rather imagine the rifle has been used little. The finish on the barrel shows more wear from storage and moving around than from actual field usage. The mainspring feels a bit weak but is ample to set off a percussion cap. This is a rare opportunity to own a piece of firearms history. Not only is it an excellent copy of an original Hawken rifle, it is the firearm (not the actual one, though) that Uberti used to make their Santa Fe Hawken from. Thank you very much for viewing this auction and taking part in it. The winning bidder should send payment plus $20 for insured UPS shipping anywhere in the continental USA (where it is legal to receive this rifle) in the form of a Cashier's check or money order. If unhappy for any reason with this rifle within three days of receipt, a full refund less shipping will be sent upon return of the firearm.
