No. You can spend I think 120 bucks and get it lettered from Colt and find out where it was shipped to but that won't be a person unless it was a special order. Probably a hardware store.

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.
