CVA Hawkins .50


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Hello,
I am new to the forum and I have a question about this rifle. Can anyone identify this model Hawkin with the kentucky style patch box?[IMG]

Do you suspect that the patch box might be an add on? It looks a lot like my Traditions Woodsman Hawkins Rifle. I state this because of the quality of the wood and the trigger guard and nose cap. But its hard to tell much about the rifle from a picture.

If you are sure it is a CVA then it might be their St. Louis Hawkins, but that model did not have that patch box or trigger guard. Sorry I could not help you.

CVA Hawkin

Perhaps your right? Would a CVA Barrel fit in a Traditions Woodsman Stock? Maybe the gun shop threw it together and just sold it that way?

CVA Hawkin

There is no K in the serial number at all, accordingt to the dealor there would be a K at the end of the serial number if it were a kit?

If not a kit, then patch box was added later.

only TC uses that K stamp.

If its a true cva kit gun, the "hawken" name will not be stamped in it.

The best guess, someone added the patch box as they liked it enough to go through the trouble.

CVA-Large Patch Box

Hello,

thanks for all of the great replies. I just came back from Fort Chambers in Chambersburg, PA and this is their specialty. This is a factory gun, made 1986, rifled 1-48 and they did make it with this patch box. He also stated CVA made several attempts to appeal to the muzzle loading community and this was one of their changes to the Hawken model. I feel better now as the bore is excellent and the overall condition of the piece is great. Time to fire it!
