Iamthenate: Nice caplock! I have the same one. Mine wasn't a kit though. Keep that
Nero619ful: @ terminal99 ok. Thanks.
MrNelsonb2: makes ya feel like Jeremiah Johnson dont it lol
Greg Bailey: Those rifles going new and in the box are close to $900.00 Saw one new for
$750.00. I bought mine back in 1987 or so and paid $150.00 for it already
to go. It has been a reliable gun. Sometimes it misfires if you don't keep
the vent clean. That's a flintlock for you though.
yoshimurazx14: You got a great deal. Just take your time and do it right. The gun sells
new for $690 (Dixie Gun Works) I agree with the guys that recommend brown
for the barrel. I just redid a T/C Hawkin I gave twenty bucks for. The guy
said it was a rust bucket. It turned out great. The American walnut stock
is beautiful. Dixie Gun Works has everything you need.
Flammable 281: I bought this exact gun in kit form around 1984 for $159.95 locally. I
browned my barrel (much easier than bluing and historically correct as
bluing didn't exist when this gun was orginally made) My rifle is
suprisingly accurate and a blsat to shoot. The double set triggers are
adjustable with the little screw by the triggers. In addition to the tang
you need a barrel pin.
anareyes01: how much are original hawkens running for? i just inherated one and i heard
their pretty expensive?? is that true??
joe weiner: I have always heard it called a tang or a rear tang
jacob dobson: man these r the best guns i bulit mine fron a kit and im 15 an i have

guns jist gota lern how to shooot i onley use round balss the work best
burkdogg21: man i wish i could find one that cheap.
trent spivey: The parts you are looking for are sold thru Dixie gun works. Go on line and
have them send you a catalog. They carry anything that has to do with black
powder rifles or handguns. Good luck. You will enjoy the Hawkins rifle they
shoot really accurate.
terminal99: You passed up a good deal. There are three completed listings for Thompson
stocks without the barrels on Ebay. They all sold for around $150. A
complete barrel assembly sold for $125.
weitzfc1: the part is a tang .for parts i say , track of the wolf, dixie gun works or
the gun works. rebrown the barrel and she'll be good to go. believe it or
not , at that price you got a deal.
bones020694: i found a nice one of these at an antique store. the man is asking 200, but
i think i can get him lower. its blued steel, not stainless, and its only
missing the ramrod. should i buy it? its the flintlock version
anareyes01: its an original
terminal99: @firewoodguy2009 Thanks
flimflamman53: you dry fire like that and you will mess the nipple up..at 45. is ok price
saw one at the market for 70.00 not a kit like new. black powder guns dont
sell too good.
HooseBinPharteen: @yoshimurazx14 It's amazing, isn't it? "One man's garbage is another man's
gold." I love getting deals like that.
Nero619ful: How much is it worth in good condition? Thanks please reply
terminal99: A used Thompson Hawken rifle in very good shape goes for between $300 -
$400. An original from the 1840's St. Louis gun shop of Samuel and Jacob
Hawken would be expensive.
blunt3068: @anareyes01 they are over $400 now
terminal99: Thanks, I found a tang and I'm in the process of wet sanding the barrel to
weitzfc1: brown it . it'll come out prettier
terminal99: If it's a Thompson Center and in good condition, I see that they go for
begtween $300 to $400 on Gunbroker.
charlie brown: i think its a tang
flimflamman53: yep looked this sat. did see the guy.
terminal99: There is a wide price range for these. Older guns from the 70's are more
desireable and factory guns bring more than kit guns. I would say just list
it on Gunbroker and see what happens.
terminal99: @buffalosoldier0534 Thanks. I found the parts I needed on Ebay. I made a
follow up video of the completed rifle.
FreshurricaneSix: why do i see routinely see this exact gun for an asking price of $790? i
have this gun--in really good condition--but i want to sell it. i need to
know if it's worth $250, $500, or $750 before posting it for sale. what's
with the crazy price range
carlallen934: That part is called a tang your also missing the barrel pin
Fireinthehole: This is really cool. I managed to pick one up at a auction for 70 bucks. It
has all the parts and is in nice condition. I cant wait to get out and
shoot it! It'll be my first time shooting a black powder.
terminal99: @Nero619ful A Thompson black powder Hawken rifle would be worth around $250.
CP 1993: dixie gun works will have you need more than likely
