ROCKY MOUNTAIN HAWKEN (1840-1865)
By Davide Pedersoli & Co., Italy
Hawken is a symbol of the period that saw the passage from the long and
heavy small caliber Pennsylvania rifle to more practical and powerful
Plains rifles, and the definite abandoning of the flintlock for the far
more modern percussion system. The strong barrel the larger caliber,
enabled hits on any target with surprising accuracy. This rifle soon
became the inseparable friend of the Mountains men, and and the most
famous explorers of the American continent.
