hello,,are ya talking about a TC hawkins? if so there a good BP firearm and there resale is still decent..book and actual resale value can be a wide spectrum ,,book id say is around 300-400,,but try to sell it for that !!it's not gonna happen for a used black powder gun most of the time ,,i see tons of them at shows in the 200-250 range and there not door busters,,alot of time i see nice tc's in the 175-200 range but there just slow movers ..and if it's a brand other than a TC then those prices could be around 1/2 the values given used,,CVA,,traditions and other brands are extremly hard to move for prices above 150 for realy nice examples ,,the blackpowder market is just like used bows ..even unfired guns will sell for around 1/2 the original value the day after ya shoot it ,,so i kinda steer clear of them ,,a good example for ya ..i have a 209 primer cva kodiak magnum hunter 50 cal ,,only 4 years old ,,fluted barrel and was the mL gun of the year in 2006,,retailed for over 400,,and still sells for around 300 new.. and i' can't get 150 for it used.. and it's only been fired around a dozen time and cleaned after each fireing ,,i've been offere daround 100 for it but i won't give it away ,, ,,so your rifle might be a good one but it isn't proably gonnna be an easy sale ..at least in my part of the country..

It's called a set trigger. Pull the rear trigger to set the mechanism and the front trigger will fire the gun with just a few ounces of pressure. Most will also fire normally using just the front trigger. A lighter trigger pull usually helps accuracy.

Depending on actual condition , value would be in the $250-275 range.
