That's a tough question because the condition can vary so much. CVA sold kits, so the condition of the gun depended greatly on the skill of the guy who assembled and finished the gun. Your best bet is to have a local gunsmith look at it and offer a professional appraisal. He will put it on paper if you need something for the insurance company (make sure that you pay him for the service).

What is the age and value of a 36 caliber Thompson center hawken serial number 12901?

Being a 5 digit serial number puts it early in production , most likely early 80's. However the Hawken was not produced by Thompson Center in .36 caliber, they did make a drop in replacement barrel in .36, but they are very rare. I suspect you may have the Seneca model, this you can determine by measuring across the barrel, flat side to flat side. The Seneca will measure 13/16" across the flats. A Hawken will measure 15/16". The Seneca also has a patch box that is rounded towards the but vs. the Hawken being pointed towards the but. If it is a Seneca .36 in 95% + condition it could be worth in the $500 to 700 range, the Hawken with the .36 drop in barrel would be in the neighborhood of 450 +/-

However, it could also compare a 50 muzzleloader to a .45-70 cartridge rifle, which is more powerful. Caliber alone only tells us the width of the bullet.

Who made the Hawken rifle?

Hawken rifles were a product of the Hawken Shop of St Louis. The rifles were produced by Jake and Sam Hawken or their employees and successors. Jake worked alone from 1815 to 1822. In 1822 He is joined by his brother Sam. From 1822 till Jakes death in 1849 the rifles were marked J&S Hawken St. Louis. After Jakes death the rifles were marked S. Hawken St. Louis. Other people that were employed by Hawken and could have produced guns in the Hawken shop were, Christian Hoffman, Tristiam Campbell, Christopher Hawken (Jakes son), and William Hawken (Sams son). In 1859 Sam turned the gunshop over to Wm. Hawken and leaves for Denver where he opens a gun shop in 1860. The St Louis shop was sold to Wm. L Watt and others in 1860. Wm. Watt employs J.P Gemmer in 1860 and in 1862 Gemmer buys a share of the business. In 1861 Sam returns to St. Louis in retirement and his Denver shop is taken over by William Hawken. In 1866 J.P. Gemmer is listed as the proprietor of the Hawken shop. J.P. Gemmer retires in 1915 and closes the Hawken shop of St Louis. It doesn't stop here, in the 1960's the estate of J.P. Gemmer was sold off and the tooling and remnant's of the Hawken shop were acquired by Art Ressel who reopened the Hawken shop and produced about 300 guns before closing in the 1980's. The shop was then sold in 1990 to a family in Oak Harbor Washington where original Hawken rifles can be purchased today. Source "Hawken Rifles, The Mountain Mans Choice" John D. Baird

Can you use 45 caliber paintballs for a 50 caliber paintball gun?

There are no 45 caliber paintballs. If there were, you still could not use them in a 50 caliber, due to the barrel being larger and that you would have 1 and 1/4 paintballs in the chamber at a time, which would chop every time.

What was the range of a muzzle loaded rifle?

Depends on the caliber, load, bullet, etc.. I wouldn't want to be within a mile. fixdeluxe1's Improvement: My .54 Calibre Muzzleloader gets about 300m Effective range but the projectile itself could probably travel for 1.5KM. You should only ever fire your muzzleloader within 100m because their is little in the way off effective ballistic properties at longer distances.Even if you fit a telescopic sight to it won't make a large ammount of difference to accuracy. Best employed on medium-to-heavy game and 1-4mm Steel plates at 100 yards.
