Ok. Weight is 9 1/2 pounds. Also off hand it holds well. To me it has that ( hang ). But not to the point of feeling muzzle heavy. And this is really a clean gun especially given it’s over 45 years built.
From what I understand cherry corners was a lock then a full Hawken parts set. The forerunner to the Ithaca Hawken. In early 1970s
