This .54 half stock Hawken was my first dabble into gun making. Kit from TOW. Made the horn and bag also. Have taken several deer with this one. According to the date stamp it was 1995. Tempest Fugit... I was so thrilled with the Hawken I set out soon after to make a flintlock. Didn't quite like the available patch box designs, so cut this one out of sheet brass with a jewels hand saw. Got it about 90% complete and then somehow got side tracked ...for 22 years! First test fire was on New Years Day 2018. We're on a roll now. This .54 full stock Hawken only took five months to complete.
