I sent it to The Gun Works in Oregon and had Joe Williams work his magic with it. It started as a 54 cal TC Hawken. He built a 36” cut rifled round ball barrel for it with a 1:79 twist, and he added a Lyman micro adjustable peep sight with a German silver front sight blade.

I refinished it with a rust browned finish, silver plated hardware, and polished the walnut finish.

The target in the picture was shot at 100 yards on a windy day. That 230 grain round ball dropped a 386 lb black bear in its tracks with a complete pass through at about 50 yards on a WV bear hunt.

Oh, how I enjoy shooting this rifle.

It is definitely a handsome piece. Looks as if it performs very well in your hands.

Excellent 100 yard group! And that rifle is very pleasing to the eye.
