I`ve had a love for the Hawken rifle for as long as I can remember..I came upon an article by Steve Zihn on another site where steve was allowed to go to the Cody museum and take original hawken rifles apart and take measurements of the rifles and make a few copies of the S.Hawkens half stock rifle.I was lucky enough to place an order with Steve for one..Like the orginal its a Plain Jane hunting rifle in .54 cal..34" Orion barrel 1" ..L&R lock with Davis triggers..I opted for a capbox over a patchbox..The rear site is the Hawken long range hunting sight..Stock is maple with small amount of tiger strip..The last photo is my Steve Zihn rifle with my Chuck Burrows bag,horn and knife

The Zihn hawken was just a tad more than what a Pedersoli hawkewn would have cost me
