Default new project

Here is a best side shot of the new Hawken project. I have to decide on cal, barrel, lock, but this side should be interesting.

Would be cool to do that I think. You will have to show us the steps you do in case any of us decide to try one we will have a thread on how a pro did it!

Now, that's what I call a good piece of wood. Not the crap that comes on a TC gun.

I found the stock on E-bay at a pretty good price. This is a long term project but I'll post as I get more done on it. Muley, don't get me started!

That's because you buy CVA The best was the old Mountain rifles in maple but even those were of low grade. At least I don't ever remember a CVA with decent wood and I've looked at several hundred on-line over the years. Never saw a stock that caught my eye and wanted to purchase it. My flintlock CVA mountain rifle is of modest, low end maple. I just wanted a mountain rifle in flintlock so I could set it next to the TC PA flintlock and remember why I haven't purchased another CVA!
