My kit was so-so The Hawken rifle kit I recieved was far from the kit my brother-in-law bought in past yrs. My stock was covered with burn marks that took hours to remove. I don't mind the rough cut of the wood as shaving and sanding can easily remove that. However, the burn marks had me worried about the final product. I shaved and sanded the stock for a total of 15hrs (all by hand) taking my time on days off work. The cast of the brass was as bad as the stock. The seam line on the trigger guard being the worst, I sanded all the brass down from 150 grit to 2000 grit wet sanding, and then used jewlers rouge for the final polish. 4hrs total on the brass was spent to get it like a mirror. The stock was finished with 3 coats of Tru-oil, 3 coats of polish, and 3 coats of wax. Barrel was blued, and all the cheap screws in the kit were replaced with all brass. August 12, 2009
Great kit for first timer! Overall, the kit produced a very nice gun. The wood finished beautifully (nice grain, took a stain well) and everything operated as it should. Some things to consider: the assembly instructions were not included but I got these online, the butt plate and the area of the stock where it fits did not match well and had to do a lot of extra work to get these properly fitted, and the barrel tenon did not mate well and had to do some work on this. Otherwise, it was a fun kit to assemble and I wouldn't hesitate to buy another one or another Traditions product. December 30, 2006
Great father son project I purchased this kit to build with my son. Just the right amount of work was needed to make the kit challenging, but still very fun to build. Patience and fair woodworking skills required to make a beautiful firearm. Lack of assembly instructions included in the box kept it from getting 5 stars. Found them on the internet, but they should have been included. If you are familiar with guns like this, can be assembled without instructions. We browned the barrel, instead of blued because my son wanted it to be more 'authentic' looking. Turned out very nice, but browning is more difficult than bluing, but the authentic look was well worth the extra trouble. I won't hesitate to purchase another kit to build with my other son, when he is ready. September 24, 2007
Hawken Rifle Kit My wife gave me this kit for christmas last year, and I found the kit overall easy to assemble. However, what I did not like about the kit, was that I had to remove alot of wood from the trigger assembly area to get the barrel tang screw to algin up with trigger assembly. Even though I had to remove so much wood, the finished product still came out great. Lucky for me, the trigger guard covered it up. What I like most of all about this kit, is the dual triggers. This rifle will shoot one hole groups at 50yards. Also, the front sight may be made of plastic, but I found it to great on cutting down on glare. December 4, 2010

A: 
No the barrel is not blued. My wife and daughter bought me one of these for Christmas several years ago. I really enjoyed putting it together. I used the Birchwood Casey gun bluing kit to blue the barrel, and a different Birchwood Casey kit to finish the stock. If you follow the directions in these kits it will turn out just fine.

You need to set the trigger with one trigger but be warned that the trigger pull on my weapon is less than a pound out of the box. I like it that way now but it was a concern at first.,(with the second trigger)

A: 
No, you will have to blue the barrel. I had good luck with the cold-blueing method. Make sure to get ~all~ the finger oil, dirt, smudges, etc. off the barrel before you blue it. (I left a bit of thumb-print that is now lightly "blued" into my barrel *grin*). I also found getting a good dark coverage took a little longer than the blueing instructions said.

A: 
on most kits the staining of the stock and barrel blueing is a do it yourself project that is why it is sold as a kit that way the consumer has a better understanding of how their gun works and great sense of accomplishment

A: 
yes, I shoot both all the time. for balls, I use a .010 patch and .490 ball, and I am able to shoot one hole groups @ 50yards. Sabots, I buy the 45calber sabots, and I load mine with 300gr 45 pistol bullets. I have not group tested this load because I sighted it in off hand at a paint can, but I have killed two hogs with this load.
