    I just came in to posession of a Hatfield black powder .50 cal rifle, at a garage sale. It is in "pristine" condition. I do not believe that it is one of the Italian made but possible an original made by Hatfield. How can I tell, and what may be its worth. I can only describe it as a thing of beauty!

    The only thing I have is for shotguns.

      I have a Hatfield mountain rifle that cost 850 bucks brand new in 1994 IMS. Mine is a 50 cal caplock with a heavy octagon barrel and is a good shooter. The stock is curly maple stained dark brown. Rifling twist is best suited for round ball. I also had a Hatfield squirrel rifle it was around $500.

        Thanks for the speedy reply - The one you have sounds like it may be what I have, except mine is tiger maple with the dark stain. It is a beautiful weapon - Can't wait to shoot it -

          I bought my .50 cal. Hatfield, flintlock with birds-eye maple in 1979 through Cabalas for around $625.00. I have had to have the lock worked on no less than four times for everything from a broken main spring to re-tooling the sear. The front blade site is impossible to see in bright sunlight. But the rifle looks good over the fireplace.

            Nope and wrong on the 6.5 Creedmoor. The Creed kills them just as dead as the .30-06, 25-06, and 270 but with much less recoil. I've used both the .30-06...

            Between Winchester and Browning and others, 40 rifles are chambered for the 6.8 Western. Question is, will the 6.8 surpass the 6.5 CM in popularity...
