Hen's tooth found!
Bought me a laminated stock .50 cal TC Hawken in practically new condition. As the set triggers wouldn't and there was an old dry patch in the patent breech, I got the price from $350 to $250.
She shows an exceptional level of fit and finish. While the stock is certainly... distinctive, it is rather attractive.
The bore is perfect from crown to breech. No finish wear on crown or lands. The stock has some trivial handling marks, and the screw head slots even line up! The flutes on the nose cap are crisp and sharp. One thing I couldn't stand about the Hawken was the washed out flutes. Made it look sloppy.
I'm looking forward to seeing how she shoots.
Wasn't looking for this one. Especially not in a shop that specializes in equipping mall ninjas. One never does know, do one?
