Re: Think I know what killed the TC Hawken
I purchased my first TC Hawken at an auction in Boyertown for $125.00 back in the late 70's. The frizzen looked like it had been struck maybe 3 or 4 times.
That half stock Hawken, right-handed of course, helped me develop one of Berks County's most outstanding cases of the flintlock flinches. As a lefty, I figured I needed to find the means to have a flintlock with the lock on the left side or give up any desire to continue to participate in Pennsylvania's new flintlock season.
I hated to part with that TC Hawken, but I knew some righty could use it more effectively, and I used the funds from that sale to make a down payment on a used, left-handed, Brad Emig "Yorktown" rifle, and the rest is history as they say. Mrs. "Berks" just shakes her head when I add another long gun which I've determined I need for some important reason.
