Investarm™ Bridger Hawken Rifle Kit - .50 Cal Flintlock - IA2410K


The earliest known record of a Hawken rifle dates back to 1823 when one was custom made for William Henry Ashley, a gun powder manufacturer turned fur trader, who used it in his expeditions up the Missouri river to the interior of the Western United States. These parties included Jim Bridger and many other explorers who would later become famous mountain men. For the next 20 years, Bridger repeatedly traversed the continental interior between the US and border and the southern boundary of present-day Colorado, and from the Missouri River westward, always with his hawken rifle by his side.

Description


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.

Jim Bridger carried the Hawken rifle as he traversed the Great Plains and Rocky Mountains of the western interior. In fact, a number of famous trappers and explorers owned Hawken rifles, including Auguste Lacome, Hugh Glass, Kit Carson, Joseph Meek, Jedediah Smith and Theodore Roosevelt. The rifle was the pinnacle of the modern percussion firearms development of the mid-nineteenth century. Originally designed and built by such famous makers as Hawken, Gemmer & Demick, the Hawken Rifle represents durable design in a big bore caliber with plenty of knockdown power. No other factory assembled rifle offers the authentic style and design of Investarm's Bridger Hawken Rifle.

The Hawken rifle was originally produced by brothers Jacob and Samuel Hawken, in their St. Louis, Missouri shop founded in 1815. The earliest known record of a Hawken rifle dates back to 1823 when one was custom made for William Henry Ashley, a gun powder manufacturer turned fur trader, who used it in his expeditions up the Missouri River to the interior of the Western United States. These parties included Jim Bridger and many other explorers who would later become famous mountain men. For the next 20 years, Bridger repeatedly traversed the continental interior between the US and border and the southern boundary of present-day Colorado, and from the Missouri River westward, always with his Hawken rifle by his side.

This Flintlock Bridger Hawken Rifle Kit offers high-quality features such as a 28" barrel with 1 in 48" twist rate for patched ball hunting loads, double set triggers and Hawken style percussion "snail" with clean out screw. The rifle includes a separate ramrod entry thimble and nose cap, and reliable coil spring lock with correct lock plate. The Investarm™ Bridger Hawken Rifle is available in .45 to .54 caliber and flintlock or percussion configurations. The Investarm Bridger Hawken Rifle is an attractive, traditional muzzleloader that is rugged, well built and meant to last a lifetime.

Bridger Hawken Flintlock 50cal. Rifle

This is my first time building a muzzleloader and I am totally please with the Investarms kit and how it’s progressing. The kit gives just enough for you to do to really feel like you’re creating the rifle and making it yours. The wooden stock comes already made for the flintlock assembly and trigger to fit but you still have to reshape the stock and fine tune it. I had to do a little adjustment for the barrel to sit perfectly and snug in the channel but that’s all part of building this gun. I do recommend using Birchwood Casey finishing kit. It explains everything you need to know about finishing the wooden stock and either blueing or browning the metal. Looking forward to getting it finished and using it..
The people at Muzzle-Loaders.com were great when I had questions about ordering and the shipment of the kit.. also helped me decide on which one to order first and I plan on ordering another kit as soon as the other one I’m wanting comes back in stock.

This is one of the fastest to learn, easily completed, and its the best first muzzleloader. I recommend the 50 cal for more options. Watch muzzle-loaders.com videos about this rifle.
