Stocked in walnut, trimmed in iron furniture, the Lyman Great Plains Rifle features a hooked breech, two wedge keys, double set triggers, adjustable rear sight, and 32" barrel. The kit version is supplied in the white, for you to finish as you'd like.
Based on the original Hawken plains rifle, the Lyman Great Plains Rifle has improved design features, with hidden modern improvements in the lock, and an attractive price, make the Lyman Great Plains Rifle a compelling value for the big game hunter or serious shooter.
The Plains Rifle was carried across the Great Plains, by western pioneers and fur trappers. It was the culmination of years of firearms development. The Lyman Great Plains Rifle is similar to rifles built by the famous Saint Louis rifle makers, Samuel Hawken, Gemmer, and Horace E. Dimick to the meet the demands of experienced backwoodsmen.
This classic muzzleloading rifle offers such high quality features as a 32" barrel, with 1 turn in 60" twist, and deep rifling grooves, ideal for patched round ball target and hunting loads.
Double lever double set triggers are fitted, for target shooting, or hunting. The triggers are well adjusted, to allow cocking the lock, or setting the trigger, in any sequence. You may fire the rifle with the trigger set, for a hair trigger release. Or, fire this rifle with the trigger unset, for a firm normal trigger release, ideal for cold weather hunting, or youth training.
A Hawken style hooked breech engages a separate tang, for ease of cleaning after shooting. This rifle features a correct iron ramrod entry thimble, and nose cap. Fitted with a reliable coil spring lock, the lock is case hardened in mottled colors.
The oval cheek rest is raised to support the shooter's cheek.
Two tang screws retain the hooked breech plug's tang. The top flat of the barrel is marked - LYMAN - MIDDLEFIELD, CONN - in antique style block letters. The diagonal flats are marked GREAT PLAINS RIFLE and the caliber, serial number, and proof marks.
The full buckhorn rear sight is screw adjustable for elevation, and may be drifted in the dovetail for windage. Mounted in a standard dovetail slot, we offer a fixed rear sight, at small extra cost, for use when your club rules prohibit adjustable sights.
A steel blade front sight, with integral steel dovetail base, is mounted behind the muzzle, in a standard dovetail slot. A brass cleaning jag (jagged tip for cleaning patch) is also included.
