St.Louis Hawken #2

Not fully complete. Still have to trim the lock and tang screws and cut dovetail for rear sight.

I did a little stock shaping in the wrist, 2 coats of dixie gun works antique gun stain, Truoil finish that was buffed down, laurel mountain forge barrel brown. All brass was blacked out with birchwood casey brass black. Fully bedded barrel channel and tang. Also have to replace that derlin ramrod with hickory once track of the wolf restocks.

This one is the Kit I got my dad for Christmas.



I'll take better pictures this evening. The sun is bright today and not making for good quality pictures. You take that rifle out into the sun light and the pattern just looks like flames of a fire.
