This gun is new and in the original box. Never fired. It has never been assembled as the keys are still in the sealed bag. It is .45 caliper. The rifle is the rarer, brass-mounted version.
Weighing in at 9.6 pounds, the rifle has a trigger reach of 13-3/4". They were made from 1977-1981 and offered in .45, 50, and .54 caliber. The .45 was recommended for deer hunting. The percussion lock has a crisp action, and strong mainspring, for fast lock time and sure-fire reliability. This lock has a fly detent, allowing the use of the single set trigger. The trigger may be latched, or the hammer cocked, in any sequence. The single trigger has a unique hidden set trigger feature. Press the trigger forward to latch the trigger over-center, under the cam roller spring. A tiny adjustment screw controls the hair-light trigger release when set. The hooked breech has the traditional snail bolster, except this breech is decorated with an embossed ram's horn, in an attractive curl. The one inch octagon 30" barrel is nicely browned to a rich chocolate brown color. Cut rifled with deep grooves, and a slow twist, this 30" barrel was made to shoot accurately with patched round balls. It uses a No. 11 percussion cap.
The Jonathan Browning Mountain Rifle is of extremely high quality and is one of the most historically accurate Hawken-type rifles ever made. It is also praised for its accuracy.
