My pride and joy.
 
T-C Hawken in .50 caliber
With just the iron sights; at 200 yards, I can put 10 LRB in a 10" pie plate.
 

 

 
currently, I'm working on obtaining some period correct accountrements and some custom-smithed lockable gun hangars, so I can display it.

    I don't sorry. While this is a smothbore does it still count under the rifle catagory?

    Love the look of that froggy.  Looks even better with 16" of steel bayonet and pointed at Redcoats. (or modern day gun-grabbers)

    I posted pics of this one before. Just recently worked it over some more. Its a Chinese MAK 90 I purchased in about 93. The thumb hole configuration sucked, so I decided to fix it. Just added are the AK optics rail, the very homemade galil charging handle, the also homemade flash hider, and the tapco galil hand guard. It has the tapco trigger group, tapco saw grip (huge improvement over the original) and an ace side folder putting me where I need to be and then some for 922r compliance. I think I am done, although at some point when my budget allows it will get some kind of red dot up top.

    currently, I'm working on obtaining some period correct accountrements and some custom-smithed lockable gun hangars, so I can display it.

    From your shooting results you must have younger eyes than I to use TC bead and notch sights that well.  That said, I have mounted adjustable Patridge (square notch & post) sights from the early TC Renegade series on all of my TC New Englanders.  The TC bead and notch sights gave an almost impossible sight picture (for me) with a poor index of elevation. The patridge sight picture cured all that.  I can now maintain "minute of paper plate" groups with my stash of the 410 grain Buffalo bullet and hard card wad seated over 100 grains of Goex FFg at 200 yards.  Velocity averaged 1260fps - if memory serves correct.

    On a slightly different note, I load a 12 bore TC New Englander smoothbore wth a .690 bullet alloy ball, lubed cloth patch and hard card wad over 100 grains of FFg. I have maintained the same "minute of paper plate" groups out to 65 yards with just the bead front and centered breech index for sights.

    Nice Daewoo! I have never had the privilege to see one in real before, but they intrigue me.

    Do we forget that cops were primarily still using 6 Shot Revolvers well through the mid 80's? It wasn't until after 1986 that most departments then relented and went to autos.
    Capacity wasn't really an issue then... and honestly really it's not even an issue now.
    Ray Chapman, used to say that the 125-grain Magnum load’s almost magical stopping power was the only reason to load .357 instead of .38 Special +P ammunition into a fighting revolver chambered for the Magnum round. I agree. - Massad Ayoob

    Paradoxically it is those who strive for self-reliance, who remain vigilant and ready to help others.

    I was looking around on the Internet, I can't even find where one would get one (couldn't find a price or anything). I did get to read a little info about them as far as gas system etc, they seem really cool other then being intangible to me.

    Daewoo has always had problems with keeping US distributors, and most of their rifles were banned from import by name during the AWB. Today they would need US made parts to meet current import requirements.

    The only way you'll find one now is to watch the auction sites.
