    I found this T/C Renegade today at Dixon's in Kempton, PA. No, the pics aren't reversed, it's a southpaw rifle. The .50 caliber barrel is 26" long and 1" across the flats. The muzzle has T/C's "Quik Load" setup, wherein they coned the muzzle to make starting a ball or bullet easier.

    Chuck Dixon dropped a borelight down the barrel so I could take a look, and it's spotless. When I ran some patches through it at home they all came out clean. Overall, the rifle looks almost new with the exception of a few handling dings.

    I've wanted a lefty Renegade for awhile so I decided to grab this one while the gettin' was good. For $220 plus tax I doubt I'd be able to beat this deal. It should make a real nice shooter.

    That's a "good get!" I was watching for a good deal on a Renegade, but ended up with a .54 caliber Lyman Great Plains Rifle instead. But if I found a deal like that, I'd jump on it anyway!

    I have that exact same Renegade. Southpaw, and all.
    I got mine for either $100 or $120 out the door.
    Yeah, I got really lucky. It didn't appear to be fired.

    As a southpaw I'm jealous. :)

    What a nice looking rifle.

    Super buy! I have had a long love affair with the Renegade, nicely made and not as garish as the poorly named "Hawken". Have a 58 Big Boar, a fifty I made out of parts collected over the years, and a 56 smoothbore that someone with more money than sense had Briley tubes installed..so it is now a 28 ga shotgun/smoothbore musket. None of the above cost more than $250 and are all fine shooters.
    Bargains are out there. Got a Pedersoli 72 cal Dangerous Game gun for $400 last year, unfired and the Pedersoli 12 ga fowler for $250, also unfired. Love those guys who have to buy something that catches their eye and then sell it on consignment later.

    me, too !

    "Love those guys who have to buy something that catches their eye and then sell it on consignment later."

    Got my eye on an apparently unfired Hawken in .54, for $125. :what:

    Clean as a whissle (which is, actually, just a tad cleaner than a whistle).

    Should I jump on it?

    oldcodger, you should jump on that Hawken like white on rice. Even if you don't like it you could turn around and double your money pretty easily.
