Got her in today. Came with Two barrels, A 22-7/8" .45 barrel and a 28-7/8" .50cal barrel. Rifle is in beautiful shape and has a lot of beauty in the wood.
Here she is with both barrels loaded and ammo in my new Belt bag. Supposed to be cold out tomorrow but i must hit the 50 yard range!

Is that a Cabela's Hunter Hawken?

Anyways, nice rifle.

cabelas sporterized carbine hawken. They dont offer them in .45 so this one is pretty hard to find.

They are a nice Hawken. I almost bought one instead of my old Renegade. Wish now I did.

They were made by Invest Arms, a branch of Lyman, weren't they?

yes, invest arms makes the lyman rifles and the cabelas hawkens.

The only real downside is that they can have a real gritty trigger. i used molly lube on mine and its smooth out a lot. i imagine over time it will smooth out slick.

every Invest Arms rifle I've seen was a good rifle. They use beautiful wood and the cold blueing is second to none.
