TC Hawken age?

My TC Hawken's serial number is 6 digits- beginning with a 5. There are no letters anywhere. Anyone have a guess as to it's age and worth? May be looking to trade it in on a new Lyman Deer Slayer. Both are 50 cal.

Wishing I was at camp!

No way to tell the age since all the T/C records were lost in a fire years ago, but on the other hand your gun would be worth 300-375,but I would just hang on to it since they are not made any more. The Lyman Deerstalker is a nice weapon to use.
The only Hawken that had a K in front of the number was a kit gun.

I can't help you on it's age, but if you decide to part with it please let me know. I've been looking for one.

Iím a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work the more I have of it.

Yep,fire lost all records.Only thing you can do is find others that remember when they bought theirs new and try to figure it out from there.
Price has gone up as most now are $400-$450.Auction can be cheaper.

I saw one at millers gun shop,mill hall,pa. in great condition but over 500 bucks...I saw one locally for 300 bucks in great shape he wanted 350 i should have bought it but i felt price was too high at 350 for used gun and I have one ...

I sold alot of my guns to buy best got a berretta /franchi now other guns were doing me no good in gun cab..I do not care if I nick up these great guns enjoying the last years of life hunting etc ..Franchi weights 5 lbs real nice hunting grouse ..

Like Bob said.The later ones had what was called QLA (quick load accurizer)my spelling is off.Which was no rifleing at the end of the barrel for easier loading.They also changed the lock design over the years.A fella on here called Retired once posted the early lock and the later lock.Hopefully he sees this and can repost the pics.Not sure of the year break when the locks changed.

Must be a later model- just checked it and it's a smooth bore for about 3/4" then the rifling begins. I am still deliberating but if I decide to sell, I'll start on here.
