1850 Hawkins Replica Pistol

I have a 1850 Hawkins Black Powder replica pistol. I purchased it in 1982 it in Germany on an Air Force Base with a German vendor. I only fired it once and now want to sell it. I can't seem to find out how much it is worth or where to sell. Can anyone help out? Would appreciate it.

It appears to be a Jukar or CVA Hawken. These were made in Spain and inported by several suppliers starting in the 70's, both as kits and as finished guns. NIB specimens are worth about $130 today.

New in box. Not as new, not fired once. NEW, unfired in the box with original papers.

Hawkins Replica Pistol

Thanks to both responders. It appears you both agree. Yes, it is a CVA made pistol. If fired but in original box would the value be much less?

I just sold one just like it on gunbroker last month ....it brought me 125.00 and it was in much better shape than the one in your pic ...
I have only fired mine twice and paid 125.00 for it new 5 years ago ....so I figure no loss no gain ...but made room in the gun safe for more .
One made by Pedersoli would be worth twice that or more.

Maybe $25-35 less, perhaps more. CVA boxes don't command a premium.

Hawkins Pistol

I appreciate everyone's comments. You are definitely right about the CVA box, slide in Styrofoam in thin cardboard sleeve.

This thread can be closed since I got what I needed from it. I don't know how to close or if you even close any.

Thanks again all.

No closure necessary. Just let it ride.
