Here's mine. A T/C Omega Z5 that I just bought last week. Talley one-piece base and rings with a Bushnell Elite 3200 3x9x40. Can't wait to fire it but that probably won't happen until the spring. Its 10 degrees F up here in Manitoba with a bunch of snow on the ground.

The other is my T/C .50 cal White Mountain Carbine. This one used to belong to my Father In-Law. Really nice little gun.

This is anearly style TC Hawken, .50cal Flintlock...when I refinished the stock I was shocked at how beautiful the wood was,hidden under the automated factory spray on finish

From my experiences with several I've looked at and bought,the 70's and early 80's Hawken stocks hadphysically larger stocks, higher / very pronounced combs,longer LOP's (14.5-14.75") and usually a much better looking grade of wood.

That rifle was actually a caplock...I bought it just to get the stock, sold the caplock & barrel, refinished the stock, installeda new TC Flintlock assembly,TC.50cal 1:66" RBFlint barrel,anda brass ramrod.

Deer load is:
90grns Goex 3F
OxYoke wad
.018" TC pillow tricking patch
Hornady .490 ball

It's a beauty and as accurate as all get out...love it
