Was that a TC Hawken Kit ?!?!??! It has the older long tang that will accept a "tang peep" ?!?!?!??!?
I had one of those stolen from a truck long ago and have looked for a replacement of that "long tang" version ever since.
I have an older jager flintlock that is a favorite for now. I bought the TC Encore Muzzle Loader that uses the 209 Primers. Really good rig but I'd like a 54 caliber for Elk. Brown doesn't make a 54 caliber TC barrel for that does he ??
As to this law the NRA membership and leadership reminds me of what the good "Rev Martin Niemoeller" said.......
Yep! Bought it from JC Penny by mail order while we were in Germany about 1975 or 76. I assembled it at Ft Hood, darned near ruined the marriage when I heated the barrel over the kitchen stove to brown it. If memory is correct it did cost me a dinner out, as the house was pretty rank that evening.
