    So I wanted to make a few changes to make my TC Hawken look a tad better. By the time I was finished all that was left of the original was the lock, trigger, and tang. I installed a 1 in 66 Green Mountain 32 inch barrel. Then all iron furniture from the Hawken shop, on a Pecatonica curly maple stock. I am quite pleased with the results.

    Nice Hawken's
    The old US Navy blanket caught my eye also, since I was a 21 year Navy man.

    Although what you did looks really good....it's no longer a TC Hawken. Reminds me of the time when a guy was showing off his historical tomahawk.....saying it was 200 yrs old and the head and shaft were only replaced 3 times. Enjoy your well done "upgrade".....Fred

    Nice. Color looks great. Some guys remove the lock engraving and bbl blueing and brown them to be more Hawken.

    I am in the process of doing this with a TC Renegade. Have the Pecatonica curly maple stock as well. What particular parts set did you use from the Hawken Shop?

    Very nice.
    Its your rifle done up they way you like.
    It doesn't matter whether it's authentic looking or no longer looks like a TC. Go out and have fun with it!
