This ThunderHawk has four (4) basic parts groups:
1. The Barrel and Receiver Assembly - This assembly is held in the stock by two stock screws; one is located about 1" in front of the trigger guard and the other is the rear trigger guard screw.
2. The Stock Assembly - Molded composite material or wood.
3. The Striker Assembly - The striker assembly is housed in the receiver, under spring tension. It is secured by the large receiver end cap at the rear end of the receiver.
4. The Trigger Assembly - Adjustable for sear engagement and over-travel. ThunderHawk® TAKEDOWN PROCEDURE
1st Step - After making sure that the gun is unprimed and uncharged, lower the striker to the "fired" position by pulling the trigger while holding the striker handle and slowly letting the striker go forward until it contacts the bare nipple.
2nd Step - Remove the ramrod from the thimble(s).
3rd Step - Remove the front stock assembly screw by turning it out counterclockwise (as viewed from the bottom of the gun). Then remove the screw from the back of the trigger guard (the front trigger guard screw holds the trigger guard to the stock, it does not hold the barrel/receiver assembly to the stock).
4th Step - The barrel and receiver may now be lifted out of the stock.
5th Step - The large receiver end cap at the rear of the receiver can now be removed by turning it counter-clockwise. This cap is under spring tension so be sure to maintain a firm grip on it while turning it out. Remove the receiver end cap, the spring and the striker handle retainer.
Now, remove the striker handle by pulling it out of the striker body. Once the striker handle is removed, the striker body can be removed from the receiver by sliding it out the back. The Trigger Assembly should not be removed from the receiver. If this is required, consult a qualified gunsmith or return your rifle to the factory for service.
Under no circumstances should the trigger mechanism be disassembled. Nor should the barrel be removed from the receiver. Further disassembly will void the warranty. If service is required, contact the factory at (603) 332-2333. To reassemble, reverse the above procedure, making sure that you check for r '' ' r '' : trigger, striker & safety mechanism prior to loading
