    I would like to identify this sight on my T/C Hawken

    It is a TC primitive sight for people that want/need a fixed sight for their gun. No longer made or marketed. The screw holes were elongated to use factory sight holes on their various octagon barreled models. It is usually used with the patridge type blade sight as found on the Renegade.

    Lyman GPR factory finish...add Tru-Oil?

    Never thoughht of the pin hole trick but l too store my true-oil upside down. Then if it does get a ‘skin’ on it, it’s on the bottom out of the way and you don’t get little chunks in your finish.

    loose front sight

    Lay about a 9/16ths socket across the dovetail and give it a couple light taps with a small hammer. It won’t take as much as you think so, tap and try, tap and try. Also, there will be no visible evidence of the repair when you’re done.

    Whatever fix you decide to use, you’ll want that CVA tang bolt more than ‘just barely snug’.

    CVA set trigger problem

    CVA’s are notorious for inletting their parts too deep. Add wood shrinkage or compression over time and stuff gets all wonky. You need to shim the triggers out a ways. Bedding compounds or popsicle sticks can be used for this.

    T/C Hawken - To Build or Not To Build

    What good is it if no one completes it and shoots it? If you don’t want to build it sell it to someone who will. My opinion and you’re welcome to it.
