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?

Sorry for the delay with pics.
This one's REALLY accurate! I have another barrel and both, being new, shred patches. But! Both LOVE my go to inline load of 70 grains of 3f Swiss, a 250 grain 45 cal. Hornady XTP in a Harvester crush rib sabot. Quite a shove to load them. But both barrels will keep 3 in right around an inch at 50 yards. That bullet, according to Greenhill, needs a 1-49 1/2 twist to stabilize.
Absolutely superb rifle. And quite an attention getter too! Have received numerous positive comments and an equal number of strange looks!
