It is definitely not a Hawken, not with a back action lock and single barrel key. It looks to have been a half stock trade rifle but the barrel has been whacked off really short.

I'd rather have a Uberti. In fact I did trade a Ruger Bisley for a Uberti 73. I don't like the Bisley or Rugers lockwork.

It could be for several things. Most likely its for a P53 Enfield or a Springfield musket. Its not a Berdan or Lorenz. It should have markings to indicate what country its from.
