Traditions Performance Firearms now has the new Prairie Hawken Rifle in stock and available for shipment. The Prairie Hawken Build-It-Yourself kits are also available.

This .50 caliber rifle has a 28" barrel with a 1:48" twist. It features a double-set trigger and two-tenon sidelock design. The Prairie Hawken has custom silver inlays on the mortise and buttstock as well as a custom two-piece fore-end cap. This rifle has a 14.5" length of pull.
Then rifles are available in either percussion or flintlock, as a finished rifle or in a build-it-yourself kit.
