Where I can find parts for an old Investarm Hawken?
A want-to-buy ad here, ebay, gunbroker...
You might try Investarm direct http://www.investarm.com/eng-contatti.html or Bob's gun shop http://www.gun-parts.com/hawken/
I'd also check in with Dixie and with Lyman.
What parts are you looking for?
Another I forgot to put on the list: The Gun Works in Oregon. They have a pretty amazing array of parts squirreled away in their back room.
Need a couple of screws (buggered) and a steel barrel wedge.
A Lyman Deerstalker wedge will fit on the Investarms?
I just ordered a couple of wedges from Lyman. Expensive to ship to Canada but I need em. My Lyman GPR and Trade rifle (Hawken) are both made by Investarms.
I made a wedge for an old Ardessa I bought cheap that was missing the wedge. I used soft steel/iron. I cut out a piece about the length and width of the wedge. The metal was slightly thicker than the wedge. I cold hammered an end on it and filed to fit the gun. I used cold blue to match the metal on the gun, but one could also brown it. To cold hammer the end/cap, I locked it in a heavy vise and used a ball peen hammer to hammer down the end of the wedge. It worked pretty well and wasn't hard to do.
Taylor and Company would probably have wedges, they don't rob you on shipping to Canuckistan like most places. Forgot about TOTW they also are very fair with shipping.
Is your rifle the Model 120A or the 120B?
It's a 120B.
