Anybody here have any experiance with this gun? Anything good or bad to say about it? I don't want an inline, but I want something a little easier to handle in the woods than my long Hawken 50 cal. Thanks for any input.

Wife bought me a T/C Thunderhawk a few years back, a predicessor to your questioned gun. Excellent gun, accurate, easy to carry, only complaint is that it didn't have a breech plug which makes cleaning a bit complicated. Am a 4-H shooting sports leader, and have some experience with side-lock muzzle loaders. Have had quite a bit of trouble with them failing to fire, due to side-lock design. Never had problems with in-line. Another gun that has my interest is the new one New England Firearms is marketing. Is built on their standard break action, with breech plug and primer in a plastic disk. Had one of my NEF rifles fitted with the muzzle loader barrel. Am very impressed with that setup. Can hardly wait for muzzle season!

Just ordered one of these last night. Looks like the simplest way to get into black powder to me, more like a shotgun action. To clean the barrel all you have to do is remove a plug and get full length access to everything.
$159.00 at Cabelas. $120 for all the accessories.

Dunno about that particular model, but my Wife has a nice T/C White Mountain Carbine in .50 cal...Stuff it with 70 grains of pyrodex and round ball for plinking out to 100 yards...Sweet shooting little gun...

PS.....I can not say enough good things about T/C and their customer service...I had two of their scopes last less than 100 rounds (one went only 20) on my Contender with a .45-70 barrel and they never blinked when replacing the first one...Then after the second one exploded, I told them I wanted an upgrade and they did so with no money exchanged...They also paid shipping both ways both times...

thanks, I have shot a TC white mountain carbine, nice muzzlwloader for anyone, doesn't weigh much and easy on the shoulder. I am hoping this treehawk is the same quality.

you have a 45-70 contender? woowee - must take quie an arm to hold er down when you flash the pan! i reckon you probly yell "clear" and just step back & prop her off like any stick-loader ay? "at's okay - after 3 or 4 revolutions, the spin slows down to where you can stop it with yer hand." lol
or better yet, "hold yer applause - that was no trick shot folks - i didn't expect it to go off!" ;)
