TC

I said the majority, and as it turned out. He has a .50.

Good guess on the .50.

No.  I didn't guess it was a .40. I just stated that GM made a 48 twist.  I didn't guess or assume anything.  And I never hunted big game with my first TC Hawken a .45, just squirrels, rabbit, coyote, bobcat and other small game.

I went with the majority. Call it an educated guess.

You would have to send the barrel to Mr. Hoyt to see if it's possible to bore it out to .54. He told me that T/C drilled their holes too deep in some of the 15/16" barrels to make boring it out to .54 unsafe. Now he can make you a 15/16" .54 with any twist rate you want for your Hawken for about the same price or less than a GM barrel is going for on Ebay.

For the information of all concerned...The Gun Works out of Springfield Oregon will sell you a barrel, breech plug, nipple, under rib and thimbles for $350.00 fitted to your rifle and they will make it in any twist that your heart desires....Joe Williams is the owner and is super knowledgeable on Black Powder, his shop is the largest on the west coast..

Thanks for the tip. At least I know if I lose another barrel courtesy of our shipping companies that I have a place to go to get another one. I see they sell them in the white. I wonder if they will also blue or brown them for a guy. Al

Good to know. I was thinking of maybe getting one in a 58 for one of the three TC's I have. Im not very knowledgeable on sights and which ones to pick but I would assume that Joe would be able to give a hand with that. I may call them up next week and see what he says. Thanks Al
