Fella brought this over for me to ID.. LOL well there are no markings on this rifle to work off of so I thought I'd post here for the experts to chime in... The ONLY markings on this rifle are a "P" and a "1" on the inside of the barrel. It's a P over 1.. appears to be .50 cal. The fella is offering it up for sale so I'd like a good assesment if possible.

Looks like a Hawkens rifle kit to me, rather nice one too.................

It looks very much like a Green River Mtn. Rifle made from a kit. The GRs were quality made in Roosevelt, Ut. in the 1960s. The Browning Mtn. Rifle was a copy of the GR. Can you see the likeness?:)

Yup. Kit of some kind.

I've got it identified for you. It's gorgeous.
I'm wondering though, if that's "browning" or rust on the barrel?

No rust on the rifle at all.. It's got the old time rust blue finish on it.. I've included pictures of the rear sight that did not make it the first go around.. I'd also like an estimated price for this rifle if possible....

It might have a Green River Mtn. barrel on it, but that is a Hawken`s Rifle............

From the link, it appears that the TOW kit ruins 175-220. Are you looking to sell it? Or trying to find out if you paid too much?

I don't own the rifle.. Just getting info together for a friend.. It may be up for sale and that is why I'd like to know what it's worth... BTW, the kit price from the TOW site is over $700.. Not sure where you got the $175 - $220 from...

The "Hawken" today is a style of rifle that can be made by anyone. Hawken is a loose discription for any short half stock BP rifle of the late perc era. As a matter of fact back in the days they were refered to as "Yeagers" by the early hunters on the high plains. A Hawken type was a name made popular by movies. The Hawken Bros. gun shop had closed by the time they were famous.:(
