I inherited two thomson guns one is a 50 cal. Scout rifle and the other is a 54 cal. Hawkin rifle. Both guns are in very good condition. Barrels are very clean no rust or pits.What might these guns be worth. thanks for any help

The demand for the traditional caplock rifles is lower- the in-line rifles and the 209 primer guns are in demand. Which is a shame because the Thompson/ Center rifles are DAMN good rifles.

Prices vary by region, but your best bet is to check CMPLETED auctions right here on GunBroker. Most I have sen locally are $200 or less for a modern caplock rifle.

I would agree with br around here you almost have to give them away with the love affair with the new inlines. $100-200 if you could find the right person. If you can find someone in a state that still has authentic hunting/doesn't allow inlines you may get more.

there are some t/c and muzzle loading pages on facebook,and thos folks rate the prices quite a bit higher than the folks here have, so far.

and I mean no offense by that,it's just the way it is.

if the serial no. had a K, it means it was a kit gun and might be worth a little less,but since these guns are not being made anymore, they still bring good price.s

imho the hawken is the prize,and the .54 is a bit rarer,it could bring 300.00 easy, maybe a a bit more.

The Hawkins are bringing $350-$450 here. The early CVA's are bringing that and more depending on the model. They droped for a while and like a lot of things no longer in production have gone up. Check the prices of the new ones in prodictuon.

I've been shooting a Hawken Percussion cap muzzle loader for over ten years ... great gun.

I have two T/C in-lines (an Omega 50 and a Pro-Hunter) both great hunting BP guns!

TC's bring $130 - 175 at live auctions around here. I have a 54 cal New Englander I paid $130 for. Everybody wants the newest inline that can use a scope.

My favorite very accurate and consistent deer hunting BP gun is a 50 cal TC Hawken that I bought new in 1979, (think it was $125 and have the original receipt and owners manual) I've converted it too mag spark 209 primer, one piece TC scope base, using sabots and Hornady XTP/Mag pistol bullets and matching Hornady sabots. Very accurate and consistent. Have the original barrel 1:48 twist and I bought a Green Mountain 1:28 LRH barrel on sale from GM for $120 free shipping about 10 years ago (should have bought a dozen of those barrels) and both the green mountain and the orginal TC barrel are very accurate with my hunting loads.
I have BP inlines, Ruger, Remington and a new Remington Ultimate that I play with, but the old TC Hawken with mag spark 209 conversion/scope is my go to rifle for deer hunting.
