Building a Hawken Rifle


Add to Cart:
Hershel shows how to build a historically correct copy of a famous St. Louis percussion plains rifle. Construction begins with a stock blank & ends with the completed rifle. He fabricates all the small parts to include forging the trigger guard & butt plate. Gun builders are advised that many aspects covered in this DVD also pertain to flintlocks, such as the hooked breech & using wedges to attach the barrel. Three original Hawken Rifles are also shown in the video.
