Early Pedersoli Hawken?

Does anyone know if Pedersoli made an earlier Hawken rifle prior to their current Rocky Mountain Hawken? I recently purchased a Pedersoli Hawken that I believe is before their current one. The only barrel markings are in this order, the serial #, the cal., Pedersoli trademark, Black Powder only with made in Italy under that. It has a Maple stock with a 32" browned barrel, case hardened butt, lock, and trigger guard/group, and a pewter nose cap. I didn't like the plastic looking finish on the stock so I took it all down and refinished it. It had a few rough spots here and there but nothing major and I was able to fix them with no problems. The only down side, and it is only a slight one, is that it is a 50 cal instead of 54. I haven't yet been able to get it to the range as I just finished doing all the stuff on it that I wanted to do.

Anyway, back to my original question. Did Pedersoli make an earlier Hawken prior to their current one?

They made a Tryon style with a squared trigger guard and a back action lock.

Yes, They made a .54 Caliber Hawken Rifle with a 32 inch barrel that was discontinued in 1994. Not sure how long it was made though.

My Hawken rifles.

Here are my two Hawken rifles. The upper one is an 54 cal. Allen from Santa Fe NM. and the lower one is the 50 cal. Pedersoli I was talking about.

That's probably the one Fingers was referring to.
