The Hawken Classic is a NMLRA event with the goal of increased education about the history of the iconic Hawken rifle in America’s history.
The 200th anniversary of the J&S Hawken rifle is the Summer of 2025. Our plan is to hold the Hawken Classic each year from 2022-2025 to celebrate this event. The Hawken brothers are the first well-known sporting arms makers in the United States. Jacob and Samuel Hawken built these rifles out of the St. Louis Hawken Shop from the 1820s to the 1850s.
The Hawken Classic is a celebration of the Hawken rifle contribution to American History, and the historic home of Daniel Boone near St. Louis, Missouri is a great location for our event.
