You are watching: Thompson center arms 50 cal serial numbers


*

I have had a muzzle loader in the ago of my for sure for a long time...at least 12 years. I simply took that out and shot that today. It is a Thomson/Center .50 Cal. The looks like a Hawkins. Yet it doesn"t speak it anywhere. It simply says "Thompson/Center Arms" and also right under the is claims Rochester, new Hampshire. Then it claims CAL50 turn off to the right. Over there is a six digit serial number top top the other side the the barrel. There are no various other markings of any type of kind. Again, it does not say Hawkins ~ above it. Ns was additionally surprized to find that that does no say black color powder only on it anywhere. I believed it had to be contemporary because is has a serial number. Yet I have actually never watched a new bp gun the did not say black powder only. Take it a look at the pics and also tell me what girlfriend think.ThanksRick

It had remained in a fire countless years before it was offered to me. The previous owner to be my mom"s 3rd husband that left it to me once he died. He had bought it in ~ an heritage sale i believe. It was in the fire before he got it. So ns know about 16-20 year of history on it. However nothing before that. I sanded the stock and cleaned that up. Brasso walk a wonderful project on the hardware. The is tough to call in the photo. However the brass is really nice.

Thompson /Center renders a Hawken now that looks precisely like my gun. I was looking at them at Cabelas yesterday. It had actually the same markings together mine, yet said Hawken after Thompson/Center. It also said black power only on it.

TC has actually been making that rifle because 1970. Ns don"t understand when black Powder just was required. The barrel has been browned where it was initially blued. It could have been gotten rid of at that time.
Wonder what the price of twist is on the one? I recognize the newer ones room 1 in 48 i m sorry is a shame, a little fast for a ring ball and also a little slow because that a slug. Simply wondering what Thompson used in their older guns. My an initial was a CVA in the seventies and also it has a 1-66 and I heard lock latter readjusted to 1-48 also.
TC go make part 1:60"s yet the vast bulk was 1:48. The CVA hill Rifle was 1:66 however I think all the remainder were 1:48 A 1:48 is a happy medium that shoots round balls and also conicals fairly well however isn"t the ideal for one of two people one.
Would love to find a offered round round gun in great shape. Was just hoping the all the at an early stage repos were. A .50 Kentucky or Hawken would certainly be nice but I won"t spend $500 add to on a acting pole.
You deserve to probably discover a Lyman great Plains because that 350 or so however I"d like a .54 or .58 The great Plains is a lot of closer come a real Hawken 보다 the TC"s, CVA"a and Investarms
.54 would be ok. I cast my very own balls (sounds kinda funny speak it the end loud) for this reason .54 would be alright. The biggest game I seek is north Whitetails, they gain pretty large but nothing a .50 or .54 round round couldn"t take care of at 100 yards. This is the an initial 1 in 48 I have actually owned and even quiet it"s pretty ns am not happy through the way it shoots. End the critical 10 years I have actually put around every conceivable mix of powder and projectile threw it and also have never ever been able to get far better then a 8 inch group at 100 garden off a bench. An excellent enough for hunting about here, yet should be way better. I"m not always hunting as soon as I shooting it.
I have taken it out to the variety twice because the first post. That shoots actual nice. I only put 3 rounds v it every time. I have actually not put a complete charge v it yet. I have actually been going easy on it come make certain all is well. So much so good. Fact be told, the an initial round go off with a cable tied come the trigger and a heavy box sitting on height of the gun. I am constantly careful the an initial time i shoot a questionable gun.

I had a 1:48 .50 and also I had good groups through Maxi balls and 90 grains of Pyrodex. Mine .58 three band Enfield is 1:48 and also it shooting minies and also 70 grains of Pyrodex to minute of 5 gallon bucket at 300 yards.
