I'm not sure either. Those are numbers I saw, must've been looking at the wrong thing.

It's worth hundreds. It is plain, nice, and I fancy the caliber. Lotta commercially-made competition for its type these days...

Thanks for all of the input guys.. My friend is coming back by this afternoon to pick the rifle back up.. I've told him that although it's not conclusive, the rifle is worth at least $300 + It may be worth more but I was unable to match the screws and some of the other components with the higher priced TOW kit. Over all though, it's a very nice Hakens style rifle..

If it were a real Hawken it would sell for around $20,000 of course most of us are adults. This is not a real Hawken it is a style. A fair price for a rifle of that quality would be around $700 dollars on todays BP rifle market. The parts and work to produce that rifle would make that a good deal. I would be most happy to pay $300 dollars and shipping for that rifle.
