    I received my stock on March 20th. Outside of the lack of communication when emailed, I don't have any complaints. I haven't tried to fit any parts yet.

    Cutting a crescent?

    I'm going to restock my T/C Hawken with a maple pre-inlet stock. I'm going to need to cut in for the buttplate. What is the best process to do this? Thanks!

    I ordered a stock on January 25th & am still waiting to receive it. They said 20 to 25 business days. I sent an email Friday night to see where they are in the process. I hope to hear from them Monday.

    T/C Hawken Stock

    Ok. I've got a stock ordered. Is there an alternative to aqua fortis to drawing the figure out of a maple stock?

    T/C Hawken Stock

    Hello! I'm wanting to restock my Hawken with a curly maple stock. I don't have a lot of experience but I feel I have enough to do this project. Track doesn't have their fancy maple stock in stock. Is there another place that offers an inletted & pre-carved stock like Track offers? Thanks!

    New sight needed?

    I have yet to get to the range. It was raining here last time I had an opportunity. Soon though! I think by stretching the spring I gave it enough tension to hold. I was thinking of using the dremel to deepen the lines on the back of the screw head so that it would catch & hold a little better...

    New sight needed?

    Well, I've stretched the original spring under the sight. It clicks better now. I do carry it in a soft case so that could have been the issue. I'm headed to see what I can do with it tomorrow. Is there possibly a way to make the grooves deeper on the screw with common tools? I do have a dremel...

    Flint Striker

    I apologize if this is in the wrong place, admin please move if you disapprove. I'm going to have a new flint striker made by a friend of mine & I'd like something kind of fancy. Could you guys post some pictures of some fancier ones you've made or seen? Thanks!

    Rollin' My Own.......

    I'm dumb to this. How does your powder get ignited? Do you open the end before you put it in or will the cap send enough fire to burn through?

    New sight needed?

    I've been shooting my T/C Hawken with the 54 cal Green Mountain drop in barrel getting ready for a hunt in Northern Missouri in December. I had it dialed in at 100 yds, cleaned it, brought it out this morning for the regular firearms opener & missed 2 does within the 100 yard mark. Brought it in...
