Hello everyone, I am new to muzzleloading and very excited about it. I am an avid recreational shooter and fly fisher. I have tied my own flies for years now and have built several custom fly rods, so I am very much looking forward to building my first muzzleloader, a St. Louis Hawken rifle. I look forward to learning as I go and sharing some of my experiences here. Be well!

Welcome to the forum from Penn's colony. In 1970 got a simple set of drawings of a Hawken rifle from the Dixie Gun Works catalog. Ordered a .58 cal. Numric Arms barrel , Dixie perc. lock , triggers and a piece of walnut. Built the rifle and shot it in matches at a local club. A young school teacher took this gun with him to a city at the most southern end of Hudson Bay to fill a job opening. Wonder where the rifle is now?......oldschool

Welcome from Ballston Spa, just down the street from you.
Definitely check out The Old Saratoga Muzzle Loading Club. I'm sighting in a 36 caliber Shenandoah I recently purchased so I won't embarrass myself at the Winter shoots 😬:).

Welcome to the forum from Hurley NY.
I built a TC Harken kit decades ago and still have it and shoot it.
