Default Springfield Hawken

Does anyone know anything about a Springfield Hawken? I picked up this rifle a couple of days ago at local pawn shop. It look just like an older CVA that I've had for about 40 years.
All that is on the barrel is Springfield Hawken 50Cal. Spain Black Powder Only.
It's all brass trim with only one wedge holding barrel to stock and two thimbels for the ramrod and single trigger. 15/16 barrel.


I have never heard of a Springfield Rifle except for the ones made for the US back before 1900. Any Help will be appreciated. Jesse

Ive had one since around 1992 or so. I think it was around 120.00 new when I bought it. Killed lots of deer with roundballs and 65 grains of 2F black powder. Getting a little hard to see the sights these days but it still shoots where I point it. I use blue stripe pillow ticking with 7 parts water and 1 part ballistol as a dry lube patch (this took a while to figure out but worth the time to experiment) I stripped mine down to bare metal and wood and refinished it with oil and brown finish on the lock and barrel for a nice old look. Give it a chance, it may surprise you

I bought one out of the Bass Pro catalog 25 years ago. Mine is a flintlock and I believe I paid $150 for it. Percussion was a few dollars cheaper.

Should just be a "store brand" Traditions/CVA. Made in Spain.

You're right. Mine was a CVA, and they were nice little rifles, and that single trigger was easily adjusted.
