T/C made some really nice, traditional black powder rifles. I have some of the Hawkens and a Renegade.

The one you are looking for is fairly rare.

So many choices.

The T/C Hawken, and their other models aren’t very original, but they are very well made and they are traditional in style and ignition.

The Inlines are like cheating to get around game laws. A person may as well use a Ruger #1, except they aren’t stuffed from the front.

There are more realistic reproductions, if that is what a person needs.

Please post some pictures and descriptions of any of the more realistic reproductions if you can.

what TC did was to produce a very good black powder repo at a very good cost that allowed a lot of people enjoy black powder hunting-shooting. at that time where could you find that type of quality for the same dollars? I have three of their small cap lock rifles in .32,.36 and .45 and TC was the only one making them at a good cost.

He's asking about rhe HSE.....not a history lesson on TC or how their wares upset purists.

There were IIRC four versions of TC Hawken. The reg, then the Cougar the Silver Elite and finally the Supreme.

The orig/ reg has brass furniture and patchbox.The Cougar is blued bbl w stainless furniture....and a medallion or patchbox ( cant remember, buddy has one ). The Silvet Elite is all stainless w no patchbox and being newer, has that &$#@*. QLA muzzle.
The Supreme has high polish bluing and thats all i remember about it.

Dont think any came w swivels.
I added them to my Silver Elite. Shot my avatar buck with it too. 3 bucks, a doe and a coyote.....retired it.

Neat looking. Temperamental. Worst TC Ive had.

Bought mine new in box for 315 back in 96. Everybody wanted in lines then. Think mfg was 95 though

BTW I have seen Ruger #1s stuffed from the front. Used to be a shop I n Indiana known for em. Seen other places do em too.

Caplocks are fun but if youre a good hunter any boom stick is cheating. In lines are safer IMHO. Can remove charge without pulling, most have dual safeties.

Not quite sure why the hate of them.

Could see a general dislike of BP though. It is a PITA.

Ive shot some high dollar customs and a bud does pretty nice work himself.

Used to think it cool. Now i hate em all LOL. Froze my arse off late season way too many times

Some people don’t like In Lines because they are using technology to game the system when hunting. Most In Lines aren’t much different than a Ruger #1, except you stuff it from the from. Some In Lines actually require a 4473.

My personal opinion is that Tradtional Muzzle Loaders should be in a different category for hunting than In Lines.

It is like the technology in archery. Modern Compound Bows are easier to use than Recurve Bows.

Here are my TC Hawken rifles...a .45 and a .50. I actually just sold the .45 as it is not really a practical caliber here in Alaska. I changed the nipples out so I could use RWS musket caps for quicker ignition. If anyone is having slow ignition or hang fires with any of the BP substitutes, the musket caps really light them off in a hurry.

Very nice.

I have a couple of 50s and a 54. To me, they are “keepers”.

Good luck!

The last Silver Elite I saw (at least 4 years ago) the seller was asking $750.

The same as with the Cougars. I saw one for $700 that has all the box and papers that was perfect, but I could not get them to budge. I really like the blued BBL and stainless furniture, with the nice figured walnut.

Even most older T/C Hawkens are in the $450 range, but you can get much better deals from an owner.

My first muzzle loader was a T/C Hawken built by a prior owner as a kit with a true slow rust browned barrel. I still have it, along with an older pre-bent hammer Renegade with double triggers and a GM .58 32" 1-66" twist barrel.

My BP interests are now primarily contemporary custom or semi-custom historically accurate flintlock focused. However the T/Cs get routinely used.

T/C traditional, discontinued, rare muzzle loaders are getting real expensive.

I have a couple new Hawkins and a couple “shooters”. However, the rare ones like the Silver Elite have eluded me.
