I have one I purchased at a gun show in Syracuse NY around 8 years ago. I could not believe what they are getting for them now. They used to be around 350 or so, here's an ad from Midway USA

I have the same Hawken only in caplock form and it's a very nice piece.

Last weekend was *bust out the musket* day for me.
I shoot it once or twice a year for a change of pace from the smokeless.
70 grains of Pyrodex + lubed patched ball + musket cap = smoke pole central


The double set trigger is one of the sweetest.
Enjoy!

I agree with the guys, nice looking smoke pole, worth around 700 bucks, keep it & go shoot it, they are a blast to shoot. (pun intended)
