Muley Amen brother.

We can squabble over the small things, but we're all hunters, and that gives us a brotherhood.

Hunting Man Muley I hope hunter's luck is with you forever. We'll agree on a few points and disagree on others. One thing I'll agree is ML hunting is a blast no matter what name is on the side of the firearm.

Muley HM....I'll give you the TC sidelocks. They're good guns, but still have faults.

I'm not sure what weird human form designed the Renegade stock, but there was a long thread on another forum about the Renegade stock banging their cheek. Mine was awful for me.

Other than that. It was a fine shooting gun with a good lock and trigger.

It's the only other TC i've owned besides the Omega.

Neither impressed me like the little Wolf I have now. Which i'm sure is going to put elk in my freezer in the future.

Hunting Man Heading out to the pool to cool off! I'm sure we'll continue our nice discussion later.

frontiergander one of their weakest areas " lyman" is their stocks. They either crack by the tang or at the toe of the stock. Warranty doesnt cover them either. I don't understand why they only come with a 1 year warranty.

My dad has a cabelas hawken and thats a good shootin mofro! 90gr 3f goex and a 250gr Thor shoots awesome in it. He prefers his Apex though LOL.

Hunting Man FG I'm well aware of those two models of CVA they weren't even close to TC quality. They were at best a poor man's budget compromise purchase that would allow him/her to get into the ML hunting world. Please don't tell me they were high quality rifles, my stomach is turning now. Whats the used price market value between the two? About $100.00. If I sat 10 used TC Hawkens on a table and 10 used CVA hawkens on another table and allowed ten people to choose just one, I would bet the result would be 8 TC to 2 CVA again just an opinion form a TC kind of guy!

Lyman doesn't build any guns. They're made by an Italian company Interarms. They also make guns for Cabelas. I bought one of those Lyman Hawken guns, and sent it back it had so many problems. Others have done the same thing. Quality has gone downhill lately. Sort of like TC.

Hunting Man Questioned by who? I hope not Muley! I can't think of another writer who put more time and effort to examine/report and debunk myths regarding the Hawken Rifles.

Muley FG just told me about that barrel. I can't believe I never ran across it before. I thought I had all the Hawken books. My interest has always been the fur trade era of pre 1840. Was this a later barrel they tried?

It's hard to stay up on all Hawken guns, because they were all different.

Yes, I am that old. Sam was a good buddy.
