CVA Hawken #4 build

I fergot to brown the tang, so that's not in the picture DOH!

So pretty its a darn shame I'll be selling it.

Front site was replaced with a german silver blade and the rear sight will be off a Marlin with an elevator ramp set up. I love it as I set my .58cal Hawken up for hopefully 200 yards. Its a great sight to have for hunting.

Triggers are all polished, adjusted and sweet. Lock is polished as well and greased lightly with moly. New nipple installed, brass was buffed down with a M3 scuffing pad for a brushed look. Waxed the stock as well for a little protection.

Once I finish it all up, I'll find a safe place outside for waaaay better pictures.

Re: CVA Hawken #4 build

I built one with my grandfather in 1980 from a CVA kit. Never have gotten anything with it, but I cherish the time we spent building it during my collegge winter break.

Memories - what a lifetime of hunting gives a man

Re: CVA Hawken #4 build

They are a great rifle.

I actually made a new stiffer trigger spring and now it feels stiff and then just snaps like glass. Easily 1lb or less trigger.

Got the tang browning, rear sight is coming in. Just have to be patient and keep her safe till shes complete.
