The Traditions® Prairie Hawken Rifle Kit is modeled after rifles used during the Rocky Mountain fur trading era of the 1830’s. The Prairie™ Hawken Kit Rifle is an excellent addition to any shooters collection. These guns were the trusted companions of fur traders and trappers who roamed the rugged western frontier. The Prairie Hawken Kit comes in a 2-tenon .50 caliber sidelock rifle with percussion ignition.
One of the best ways to get a real hands-on muzzleloading experience is to build a rifle yourself. Easy to read instructions guide you through the building process to a finished product. There is no greater feeling of accomplishment than knowing you built a fully functional rifle for shooting or display.
The Traditons® Prairie Hawken Kit features a double-set trigger in an oversized glove-fitting, trigger-guard with finger rest. The rifle also comes complete with classic blackened silver hardware and a 28″ octagonal uncured barrel. The rifle features a 1:48″ twist and an overall length of 44.5″ and 14.5″ length of pull. To provide the best kit experience, the barrel will need to be finished with a blueing or browning treatment. The stock will also be unfinished and some light woodworking may be needed to ensure a proper fit.
