Investarm™ Santa Fe Hawken Rifle Kit – .36 Cal Flintlock – IASH5126K


On May 27th, 1831 while enroute to Santa Fe with fellow fur traders David Jackson and William Sublette, at Wagon Bed Springs Kansas, Jedediah Smith was ambushed and killed by Comanche Indians. His Hawken rifle and two sidelock pistols were traded in Santa Fe, New Mexico by Comancheros who obtained them from the Comanches. Such a rifle is fitting to recognize the man who discovered the South Pass and was the first to reach the California overland from the American Frontier. He was also the first to cross the Sierra Nevada, first to travel the length and breadth of the Great Basin and the first to reach Oregon by traveling overland up the California coast.
