    I took a risk today and ordered a "Heritage" Hawken 50 cal 28" rifle. I can not find any information on the web about the "Heritage" brand. Does anyone know any background on these guns? I do not have the gun in hand yet but was told by the seller that the word "Heritage" was the only name inscribed on the barrel. The best I could come up with is that these were at one time possible sold through Cabelas.

    Any information would be appreciated!

    When were they made? Who sold them? Is the company owned by someone else?

    Found one used Heritage hawken on line for $125.00. I wasn't aware that they still sold new rifles. These are most likely mid-priced ML's. Good luck with your purchase.

    Thanks for the Replies. I received the Heritage Hawken and it was a complete disappointment. It was in very rough shape and no patch box. Seemed like it was a 70s or 80s vintage rifle made in Spain. This was not made by the outfit in Florida that makes the Heritage revolvers. I was able to return it to the seller for a full refund.

    I am looking for a nice used Hawken with a patch box in the stock for $200 or less. I'm not finding much so I may have to save up a little more...

    I have a 50 cal Hawkin percussion with a1-44" twist in a 28" barrel, made by investarms in Italy. I'm not too sure what it's worth brand new, but used it works fantastic, shoots like a dream and very accurate with a spitpatch and round ball.

    I bought a Heritage Hawken kit back in 91-92 through Bass Pro Shops. Put it together in a weekend. It was my first black powder gun. It shot quite well, easily keeping my shots on a 7 inch paper plate at 100 yds. As I recall, it had the patch box on the stock and a large inlaid star where you rested your cheek. I really liked the thing and couldn't wait to shoot a deer with it. Unfortunately, some d*ck broke into my apartment and it was stolen. I replaced it a few years later with a Traditions, which wasn't nearly as accurate, and got out of black powder soon thereafter. I think I'd still be at it if I still had the Heritage.....
