I just weighed my Hawken muzzys.  They aren't too bad, not as light as T/C New Englander though.
.58 Investarm Hawken (15/16th across the flats)  7 lbs. 7 oz.
.54 CVA Hawken (1" across the flats)  7 lbs 13 oz.

I don't care for cliches, but I'll use one here: the choice is based on personal preference. I would never dictate my preferences to someone else.
For me:
If I am going to be in the forest, my 32 inch barrel, Hawken style rifle can be manipulated more easily than my 40 inch, flintlock longrifle.

In the case of being in sparse growth areas, plains or above tree line, then I might use the longrifle. It depends on how adventurous I feel. The flintlock is more of a challenge for me to shoot accurately, so the Hawken remains in play.
