Birchwood Casey markets Brass Black. At one time Dixie Gun works had a furniture kit for the T/C Hawken, with everything , including the buttplate, in steel. If it is still available, I would go that route instead, replace the brass furniture and brown the new steel parts.

I wish T/C would have left the patchbox off the Hawken. I don't like the looks of it.

The T/C Renegade over at Fox is almost identical to the Hawkens... minus the brass and two inches in barrel length. About $100 less too!
