Have you looked at the Lyman Deerstalker?

You'll appreciate set triggers after a few sessions on the range.

I agree, not a big fan of the set triggers. I guess that I am not used to them, my deer stalker didn't have them and neither does my custom gun. . . well that trigger is just a dream to pull, but that another converstaion

Re: cabelas .50cal hawken carbine

Double phase double set triggers will work either set or unset. So you can use them as a single trigger or as a set trigger. As I recall the Cabela's Hawkens and Lyman products are both made by Investarms in Italy. To an extent it is sort of like the difference between a Buick and a Pontiac, same basic item with different options and chrome. I do have a Investarms hawken barrel with a chromium steel lined barrel. Almost like stainless steel. In fact the gun was cobbled together with Lyman, Investarms and TC parts.

Love a set trigger. My T/C Hawkin set to go off if ya barely touch fire trigger once the set trigger engaged! Gotta be on target and ready! Does take a few rounds to get use to...
