The Hawken rifle, originally created in Flintlock & later in Percussion, was a black powder muzzleloading rifle built by the Hawken brothers, and used by the Fur Trade Mountain Men on the prairies and in the Rocky Mountains of the United States & at Rendezvous during the 1820's to 1850's. It has become synonymous with the "plains rifle", the buffalo gun, and the fur trapper's gun. Developed in the 1820s, it was displaced by breechloaders (such as the Sharps rifle) & lever-action rifles.
