Investarms Model 120A "Hawken" .45 caliber percussion rifle. 24247810

I have it next to a .45 caliber pistol, both are accurate with the Lee REAL bullet lubricated with liquid alox over a pre-lubed felt wad and FFFG blackpowder. The rifle gets 90gr, the pistol gets 40gr.

I later gave these weapons to a friend to get him started in traditional muzzleloading firearms.

They make good rifles.

They dropped the 120A model on their website, the 120B seems to be the standard now. I don't care for the small patchbox on the 120B as it is too small for carrying the tools that I can carry in the larger patchbox of the 120A.

I would like to see them bring back the 120A, but in .54 caliber, 1/66 twist in a 32" barrel.

I really recommend changing the rear sight over to the Lyman 57 GPR and get a silver blade front sight like mine or go with the Lyman 17 series front sight.
