I may not be able to get it to shoot right now but I sure can make it look good.

I wanted to change the look of my 54cal. i started darken the brass fixtures, the butt plate and trigger guard.

just have the small parts to go

very impressive, i think it actually high lights the stock and brings it more to your attention.

How bout more pics once its all put together? LOL.

I hopefully will get the lock out on monday. With the snow and all, its slowed me down.

It looks better, because the real Hawken had no brass.
