Hawken Rifles

During the 1970s when the bicentennial hit big, and people started becoming interested in "Buckskinning", a return to the muzzleloading pioneer tradition occurred. Many people interested in this hobby began to demand guns that were like those of their pioneer ancestors. Unfortunately, the name Hawken came to be synonymous with a a large bore, half-stock, cap lock rifle during this time. Though the movie had Johnson carrying a Hawken gun, the actual gun carried in the movie little resembles a gun after the true Jacob and Samuel Hawken style. Jeremiah Johnson (Robert Redford) carries both a .30 and .50 caliber Hawken rifle.
