I agree with that except I'll include the TC, Investarms, CVA Hawkens, etc. even tho they're not a copy of anything historical. They do bear some resemblance to some of the plains rifles and they are good guns with a traditional look to them.

While we're at it, I'll add the Lyman Trade and Great Plains rifles..always wanted one, but never had the money when I was younger, so all of mine were CVA or Dixie kits, with the exception of my T/C New Englander.

The Lyman GPR is about as close to a real Hawken as you can get in a reasonably priced production rifle. There's some minor differences but they'll pass muster at most voos where the TC's, CVA's, etc won't

If you want to buy a quality replica sidelock and have money to blow or get replica materials to build your own, go to Track of the Wolf - Muzzle Loading & Black Powder Guns Kits, Parts, Accoutrements, Rendezvous Gear & Primitive Americana. That is where I get all my traditional materials for camping and black powder shooting.
