Josh Graham posted about the Hawk below with pictures. It is actually an interesting story. I used to trade air rifles with his father. Especially in his last days, I bought pieces to help pay for the medical bills. The Hawk was one of his favorites and one of my favorites as well. It was in the "keeper" list of air rifles. As a compulsive collector for many years, many pieces came and went. Yet there were a few that stayed. Actually, I sold off the heart of my collection years ago. All the normal rifles that we used back then. A few custom odds and ends remain. I was "never" going to sell the Hawk. Not only was it a nice air rifle but the connection with Kimber and the stock took it to another level. Josh contacted me about the fact that the family had to sell off most everything during his dad's illness and he had nothing of his dad's left to cherish and honor his memory. I struggled with letting go on the Hawk because it was a one of a kind. Yet a son's memory of his father is way more important than a material possession - no matter how nice it may be.
