Even Though I Shouldn't...I Did
« on: September 15, 2017, 02:02:03 PM »
I couldn't help myself...WB Selb .54 Cal Hawken made in 2014.  I know most are flintlock shooters here but I've always wanted a really nice Hawken rifle.  Some of that stems from bow hunting the triangle between the Yellowstone & Missouri Rivers. I killed a couple real nice bucks on the old river channels that the Lewis & Clark Expedition traveled...also where the Wensels filmed October Whitetails.  After talking with Brant about the components on this used Hawken and seeing his work on his web site, I couldn't resist...tippit
