Jordan can well answer for himself, but...
This, these, is a "custom built" and they are intended, meant, etc., to be shot for target or hunting.. This IS "what" an atypical late 1840's thorugh 1850's "Hawken" rifle NUG is supposed to look like, not what the Italian and Spanish TC clones call "Hawken" or Hawkin" rifles.
Were it left-handed and .52, I would buy it myself!
Who had had a "custom" circa 1825 LH Jacob and Samuel Hawken flintlock full-stock, a "custom" circa 1830 LH Jacob and Samuel Hawken caplock full-stock, and a "custom" circa 1850 LH Samuel Hawken caplock half-stock Mess

Not a real Civil War reenactor, I only portray one on boards and fora.
I do not portray a Civil War soldier, I merely interpret one.
