    Lock and trigger will. The round barrel will not.

    I would bet that all of it would drop in to a TC New Englander stock. Hawked stock would need the barrel channel re shaped.

    The lock is the only part that will interchange with the Hawken. The trigger and guard are a one piece unit that is not large enough to cover cut out in the Hawken stock.

    Thanks for the info, did not know about the trigger and guard being one piece. And I have a grey hawk, but never shot it or had a reason to disassemble it. But you have to admit, it looks like a foul weather version of the New Englander.

    It is a stainless steel version of the New Englander and all parts are interchangeable.

    That would look pretty good in a wood stock!
    I wonder if Pecatonia has a curly maple that would fit?

    I doubt if Pecatonica River has anything that would work unless you got a stock without the barrel channel being cut.
    Their Hawken stock has a barrel channel cut for a octagon barrel.

    Of course, they'll gladly send you a stock without the barrel channel pre cut if you call them and order it special.

    Besides the trigger, the tang is also completely different.

    You could send that synthetic stock out to a duplicator , and make a
    Grade AAA walnut . Polish up that stainless ....
    You'd have one gun for show on nice days and another for an allweather gun .

    I understand the folk in the pacific NW like them because of all the rain. I had one, nice light gun, shot OK but looked out of place alongside my flintlocks. They are hard to sell, were last made in the 90s, they are a little too high tech for traditional guys and a little too low tech for the guys who shoot the other stuff.

    Richard Dittman, does this Grey Hawk have the TC QLA, an unrifled portion of barrel below the muzzle?
    Thanks.

    While we are waiting for Richard Dittman's response ..... have owned two Grey Hawk models years ago. Neither one had the QLA barrel. If memory is correct, some Grey Hawks were made with QLA barrels after the QLA feature became available.

    The last Grey Hawk I inquired about did have it.
    Some do and some don't.

    It has a fairly light pull. Is that what you are asking?
