Description


The Pedersoli® Hawken Hunter .50 Cal Percussion Rifle is specifically designed for serious muzzleloader hunters. Sticking with the timeless Hawken rifle design Pedersoli® has added a few modern features to the Hawken Hunter rifle to make it a truly great hunting rifle. The stock is crafted from beautiful American walnut and is protected by a satin finish to keep the gun functional and looking great. The end of the American walnut stock is covered by a microcell thick butt plat that is designed to absorb recoil transferring less felt recoil to the shooter's shoulder. Another modern innovation is the fiberglass ramrod, while many traditional style Hawken rifles feature a more fragile wooden ramrod the Pedersoli Hawken Hunter comes equipped with a durable fiberglass ramrod for loading and cleaning. With a fiberglass ramrod, you don't have to worry about snapping the ramrod while out in the field giving you one less thing to worry about that would otherwise distract you from the hunt. 

Pedersoli® has equipped the Hawken Hunter rifle with a ghost ring aperture sight on the tang and a blade sight on the front of the gun. This sight assembly allows the user to line up on their target with much greater speed and precision, ensuring a more accurate shot when it matters most. The rear ghost sight is fully adjustable for elevation and windage and can be easily sighted in at the range. The excellent sight system perfectly compliments the barrels 1:24 twist rate that allows for much greater accuracy than typically found on traditional Hawken rifles. The 1:24 twist rate allows the user shoot conical bullets that are typically only used in modern inline muzzleloaders including sabots, full bore conicals and belted conical bullets. With these great innovations, the Pedersoli Hawken Hunter rifle performs like a modern rifle while offering the user an authentic traditional hunting experience.

Adding to the great features already listed is a crisp trigger assembly. The Pedersoli® Hawken Hunter features a perfectly crafted double set trigger system that allows the user to have two different trigger pulls. The front trigger naturally pulls crisp and smooth with very little or no creep and can be made into a hair-trigger by pulling the set trigger just behind the main trigger. Once the hammer is locked back into the firing position the front trigger will engage the hammer at standard pull or if you first pull the set trigger the front trigger will go off with just a gentle squeeze. In either operation mode, the trigger assembly is incredibly crisp allowing for clean accurate shots over and over again. Rounding out the rifle is a well balanced 28 3/8" blued octagon barrel that is built for durability and precision. The rifle's overall length measures 44 1/4" and is a great size for hunters of all experience levels. When it comes to a traditional hunting rifle the Pedersoli® Hawken Hunter .50 Cal. Percussion Rifle is alone at the top of its class and is worthy of a spot in your hunting rifle lineup.

Muzzle-Loader Hunter
Pedersoli Quality overall, but won’t load standard .50 cal conicals without tremendous force

The first reviewer is spot on. I tried loading a .50 cal Great Plains conical (which loads fine in my Traditions Hawken Woodsman) in the Pedersoli Hawken Hunter, and I ended up having literally hammer on the ball starter with a heavy blunt object to finally get it into the barrel - it shaved a lead ring off the conical like when loading a .454 ball into a .44 New Army Revolver.

When I tried loading a copper .50 cal Thor lightning conical, which is supposed to be one size fits all, I broke the plastic ball starter while hammering it down. I also ended up damaging the Pedersoli stock ramrod mashing the copper conical the rest of the way down.

That being said, everything else is great, and I am a fan overall of Pedersoli quality, I own two other really nice Pedersoli arms, and I’m looking forward to using this rifle with sabots in the future.

But Pedersoli should advise people up front this gun is apparently in my opinion designed for using sabots, (narrower than .50 cal bullets with soft plastic around them), and not solid metal 50 caliber conicals.

Fantastic, accurate, well-nader hunting rifle

Pros: Attractive. Top notch fit and finish. Great sights optimized for hunting in lower light conditions. Very, very accurate. Will shoot heavy lead and sabot rounds very well. Drum/nipple is timed perfectly to the hammer. Great ramrod (fiberglass). Barrel wedge is captured so you really can't loose it.

Cons: Trigger guard isn't inletted, it's just screwed onto the bottom of the rifle (to be fair, there probably isn't enough trigger clearance to allow for inletting). The bore is tight, really tight. Pedersoli recommends a .500 diamter bullet weighing 450 grains. When they say .500, they mean .500. I tried a Hornady Great Plains in this that measured .510 (because to went down the barrel of every other .50 I own) and I had to end up using a hammer and a solid aluminim ramrod to get it seated. It fired fine, but I have found even .501 diameter bullets are too tight. I have settled on pure lead bullets in .500 diamter weighing 460 grains over 80 grains of real black powder.

All in all, a very, very good rifle if you feed it the right bullets. Did I mention .500 is the right size? Take my word for it and save yourself headaches.
