    WB Selb .40 cal Hawken Squirrel Rifle

    I had to check my correspondence since it's been so long ago; my Hawken was to be .58 with a 34" straight barrel. With my wait at over 3 plus years and Smokey's at 4, I'd say your chances of getting it for next year's hunting season are unfortunately about zero. I'd have never ordered it if...
