The Hawken Classic:
The 200th anniversary of the J and S Hawken rifle is 2025. We began celebrating this annual event the Summer of 2022.
The Hawken brothers were instrumental in the development of the purpose-built Plains/Mountain rifle. Their rifles became the prototype for all makers supplying the Western trade. The Hawken Shop in St. Louis supplied rifles for the trans Mississippi trade from the 1820’s through 1860. The Hawken Classic is a celebration of the Hawken rifles contribution to American History. The Lewis and Clark Boat House and Museum near St. Louis, Missouri, is a great location for this event. In August 2023 the Hawken rifle was named the Official State Rifle for Missouri.
