    Glad you got a barrel. I know there are some here who don't think S&W owning TC has anything to do with their warranty, but...

    I was checking a law enforcement forum and it seems that S&W will not sell certain pistols to LE agencies out of fear of having to support them with warranty service.

    Things that make you say, hmmmm.

    What's next? Twinkies? Guess that "lifetime warranty" refers to the other guy's lifetime (T/C). Yes, I've seen the price of the Hawken climb, along with the Italian guns, to the point where it doesn't make a lot of sense to buy new. Consider that the Great Plains Rifle is several hundred dollars below the Hawken, too. Well, insofar as guns go, the Hawken has had a pretty long ride. Again, I agree that pricing (coupled with the growth of "modern" muzzle loaders) has put the nail in the coffin. Still, there must be thousands of Hawkens out there on the used market. I've picked up new and like-new guns for a fraction of the current retail prices, mostly at gun shows.

    All a guy needs to do is lay in a supply of spare parts and barrels and you will be good to go for the rest of your life. A look around some pawn shops and you will find some parts rifles & etc. Since gun shops can't move traditonal rifles very fast, you can pick up old TC rifles on the cheap. Then ebay what you don't want or need.

    Good idea. I may do just that even though I hardly ever use my TC 'hawken' any more.

    I see at least one T/C Hawken, sometimes three-four, at the local big gun show that cycles through here every couple of months. Some have obvious wear or modifications. There was a clean .45 last show but it had been DT'd for a scope, so the barrel would do but wasn't pristine. Rest of the parts were fine, though. Seems that many muzzle loaders were bought on a whim, then (hopefully) clean and put away after one range session because the owner didn't realize all that BP shooting entails. My .50 Hawken was a kit gun that a fellow who "enjoyed working with wood" finished and just hung on the wall. Every bit as good a job as could had from the factory for a third the price new. Wonder how many T/C Hawkens are out there? Must be thousands.

    I'm glad I picked up a used pre-QLA Hawken in .54 about fours yrs ago. They did, IMO and I agree with the other comments, they "high" priced themselves out of popularity, as well as that QLA thingy.
    I almost bought a Hawken in .50 a few weeks back but opted for a .50 New Englander and even more recently a .54 Gray Hawk.
    Me thinks I should've bought the Hawken.........ah there's still time ;)

    A flinter in .50, minus the QLA, looks like a future prospect for me.

    Been doing that...for the Hawken, the Renegade and the stainless New Englander (Grey Hawk). Not so successful with the Seneca. Always thought TC was too good to last.

    Hello had the same problem with a .50 Hawken new old stock.
    Sent it to Bob Hoyt he did a re-cut + .10
    Now it drives tacks. I would not part with it.

    Worst I've seen was over on another forum.

    I don't mind seeing old threads brought back. Many of them have a lot of information that is still as good as the day it was posted and additional comments or questions in them can be very useful.

    On the other hand, it's pretty silly to ask someone in a 10 or 15 year old post if they finished the rifle they were making or if they found a better powder load. (Yes, I have seen this happen.)
    Even if the author the question is directed towards is still on the forum, if they are like me, they are doing good to remember what they were talking about 10 or 15 years ago.
