Antique Gun Collecting / Re: A New Hawken to Me
« Last post by Hungry Horse on March 20, 2023, 08:59:38 PM »
If the Hawken rifles Iíve seen are any indication, a lock signed by them is pretty rare. Iíve seen their guns with locks by known lock makers, and even by their competitors. But not by them. For me a rifle with a Hawken signed lock would make me look at it very closely.

Am I the only one here that rubs a little chalk dust into engraved, or stamped name so they can be read easier?

Antique Gun Collecting / Re: A few Leman rifles
« Last post by Rzimpleman on March 20, 2023, 08:40:02 PM »
Taylor, I collect Pennsylvania/Kentucky rifles and have a few Leman rifles.  I have two with Lancaster style patch boxes and I believe to be early Lemans (mid 1840s-1850) before Leman adopted the ubiquitous circular cap box.  Surprisingly, I haven't found many resources for Leman rifles despite being extremely prolific.  I have seen only one other Leman rifle with a straight plain patch box in my research.  If you have any info on either I would sincerely appreciate it.

Gun Building / Re: Fowler rear sight inquiry

I don't think a rear sight would bother me, shooting flying. I see a ghost of the front of the barrel and with caplock or modern, I slap the trigger as the ghost touches the 'mark'. With the flinter,
I pass the "mark' by a foot before slapping the trigger. That seems to give me the proper lead. Must have something to do with the passing speed. ;)

I have always marveled at the cartoon nature of this time period's depiction of archery tackle.  At best, one can only call them symbols for the actual weapons.
