Re: Hawkens style Muzzle loader with double set triggers
Iceman....you are quite right! I have owned both a Thompson-Center Arms "Hawken" and a Lyman "Great Plains Rifle". The Lyman has the basic look and feel of the real thing (And I have handled plenty of the "real thing"). It is probably the closest you will find today in a mass-produced factory-made gun. There was a time, back in the 1970's, when Green River Rifle Works in Roosevelt, Utah, and Sharon Rifle Works in Kalispell, Montana, produced some replica Plains Rifles that were fairly close copies of an original Hawken. These guns are almost collector's items themselves, today.
