This is stunning work. I love it. Love how you reinterpreted the Hawken, keeping the classic lines of the stock but also adding enough parts to change that profile and make it feel very much in-universe, without going overboard or not adding enough. I feel like that's a hard balance to strike, and you nailed it. And the weathering is excellent. It looks like it's seen many years of use, dirt, grime, and wear in the hands of a series of mercenaries, or generations of homesteaders on an outer rim world.

Bravo.

Thanks very much! It was an extremely rewarding endeavor. And like you mentioned a while back, having a personal history with the gun makes it even more special.

This whole project is fantastic. It gives me some ideas for greebling up my own rifle idea (it'll be a 3d printed 1895 Lee Navy). Absolutely looks like a cycler rifle. I dare say it is movie quality.

One other idea I had was for a sight...but I can't decide if I think it looks silly or not...?



As for the sight, I think it looks fine, though a bit out of place for a Mandalorian weapon, and sits higher than is practical. It is a great use of the hammer, though. My suggestion would be to add an equally beat-up-looking scope, and have the "sight" as a backup.

This is such a great custom build!  I love what you've done here!  Very in-universe looking to me.  Well done!

Thanks so much for the kind words!
I neglected to post the finished product, so here are a few shots...



I decided to remove the “sight” as well

I like how you changed the traditional wood of the stock/frame to white.  It makes it look like it was made out of a tusk or bone from a large animal.

That was the intention, to try and make it look like bone, or at least bone colored, so I’m glad that came through  :D

Absolutely gorgeous. You should be extremely proud.

Honestly makes me tempted to repaint my own carbine's stock to get that bone effect...  :8):
