Green Mountain Long Range Hunter
« on: February 01, 2020, 04:05:00 AM »
Hello Guys,

FYI, I just received a New LRH from Track Of The Wolf for my son's TC Hawkin, 50 cal. 1:28 twist.
I don't know if Green Mountain is making these again or if Track just broke down & special ordered some.

Hi Antique, last May I purchased one of those barrels from Track of the Wolf for one of my TC Hawkens:

Track of the Wolf seems to be the only place to buy new replacement barrels for the TC Hawken. The only issue I have with the barrel is that the ramrod doesn't lock into the stock. The hole for the retaining spring is at a different length on the barrel compared to the TC barrel.

Why did you get a barrel with such a fast twist? Worried about bullet stability? See:

Hello Richard,

Just thinking it might shoot with a little more accuracy.
Maybe I'm all wrong, but I do know the 1:48 TC didn't shoot that well.
This one is a GMT-50-C-TC-28-B, 28" long. I know the old ones were 32".
