What Was the T/C Rifle Called...

    This was about 3 years ago. I think it might have been based on the Hawkin and was available in .50, but I think it had a rubber butt pad. It also didn't have as much brass hardware on it.

    Does anyone remember what is was called? Is it still available? I think it was a custom shop item.

    I'm thinking it was called a "Renegade". I sure would like to find one.

    Renegade is the one! A friend of mine had one back in the early 80's while I was using a CVA Hawken.

    Yep - I think that was it. I don't see it on T/C's web site, though. They only show the Hawken. I tried the foxridgeoutfitters.com web site, but it's not online.

    I wonder if they would still make one? I'll call them Monday.

    The only sidelock still being made by Thompson Center is the Hawken. The Renegade is no longer being made. They are regularly available on various forum classifieds and the gun auction sites.

    The Renegade is basically a Hawken minus most of the hardware. It does not have a rubber recoil pad. I have one in .54 cal.

    My TC White Mt. Hunter does have a rubber recoil pad, but it is much shorter than a Hawken.

    The model you describe (single trigger, rubber buttpad) was actually the Renegade Hunter. The standard Renegade has double triggers and a steel buttplate. T/C may have dropped the standard Renegade later on for the Hunter variant - not sure on that point.

    Another difference between the Renegade and Hawken is that the Renegade's barrel is 1" across the flats, while the Hawken's is typically 15/16", except in the 'Big Boar' .58 variant.
