In .50 Caliber Cap Lock Or .50 Caliber Flint Lock
Undoubtedly the most copied rifle in the history of firearms, the T/C Hawken™ was designed for the American shooter. This is a top quality firearm—every bit as fine as the one your great, great granddaddy carried across his saddle pommel or packed along on the wagon train. It captures the romance of the original but it is manufactured to standards of quality control that were unheard of in the early 1800’s. The proper use of the investment casting, improved methods of hardening parts and deep hole drilling, the use of continuous Magnaflux process to guard against imperfections in the steel itself coupled to our constant attention to min./max. tolerances is what allows us to offer a Lifetime Warranty! Inspect a T/C Hawken™ at your local dealer and compare it to all other brands before you purchase. We manufacture the finest quality muzzleloading firearms available.
T/C’s famous Hawken™ Rifle is complemented by solid brass hardware. The butt plate, trigger guard and contoured patch box have been meticulously inletted and fitted to the American Walnut stock.
