I was cleanin my smoke pole to put it up for the month and the lock quit workin, the hammer won't stay back, BUMMER!! I took it apart and cleaned it and checked it out, there are parts in it that are wore out,, I need a new one. Or at least some new parts. I called T/C and asked them about it and was told they quit makin the Hawken I think she said back in 04 . But it is Thompson/Center so no problem. She is sending me out a return slip and they will fix it and have it back to me in 2 weeks or less after they get it. All for free. It won't even cost me anything to mail it to them. I was worried that they would change their policy after Smith and Wesson bought them out in 07. They started makin the Hawken back in 70 or 71. Seems like everybody only wants the in-lines any more. Darn kids now days.
