Between noon and five PM yesterday, I held, in my own two hands, Mariano Modena's Hawken, Tom Tobin's Hawken, and James P Beckwourth pre-J Hawken Hawken rifle.

It was a very good day...

Sounds like you've been to Jim Gordon's museum.

FWIW - I got to handle and measure (since lost)the Modena (correct spelling is actually Medina)while it was still in Denver way back in 1972.

While Jim will patently deny it the barrel and lock are replacements circa late 1850's.
