The year is 1736. A young apprentice rifle builder named bronko22000 has just recieved a major scolding from his crotchety old German master gunsmith he is serving his apprenticeship under. The old master, with hickory ramrod blank in hand and threatening to seriously whoop the boy's @$$ shouts out, "TAMMIT PRONKO!! HOW MINNY TIMES DO I HAFF TO TELL YOU DAT IT'S ESCUTCHEONS! ESCUTCHEONS!...NOT TIS TAM EUSTATIONS DAT YOU KEEP ONT TELLINK DER KUSTARMER!!!"....

Congratulations on a great rifle. It will serve you well. Try 85 grains of powder and a patched roundball. The rifle will surprise you.

Excellent BPS!

But we really have to cut Bronko some slack. He's so old and feeble he can hardly spell his name correctly, much less something challenging like escutcheons. After all, he got wedge pins and trigger guard right. Two out of three ain't so bad.

I'll be shooting Triple 7 in this rifle.
Congrats on buying a great rifle at a fair price. I know there are others that would say you shoulda bought this or you shoulda bought that blah, blah. But you just bought a piece of American history and it was built by a company that took pride in what they did. I wouldn't limit yourself solely to Triple7, try blackpowder and pyrodex as well. Try different patch material thickness, lubes, ball diameters (I don't know what caliber you have) as well as different conical bullets and I'm sure you'll find a load for each one that shoots really well.

It's a 50 caliber, I bought the rifle manly for deer hunting and target shooting, plus I would love take a deer with round ball.

A great gun for what you want to do with it.

Good luck on your deer hunt.

Default Speaking of Renegade and Hawken

Does anyone know where I can get a schematic or an exploded view or assembly instructions? I bought a used one from my brother and I wanted to reblue and look at the lock which did not strike all the time. I got a new hammer, etc, etc and ready to put it back together which should be no problem. However, being a good Warrant Officer in the Army, retired or course, I would like to have something in front of me as I work?

Checked online, checked all the schematics available, even downloaded the manual, but someplace there has to be an exploded view with parts lists, etc.

Thanks
