My Thompson Encore

TC-Encore-Pistol-And-RifleThompson/Center (T/C) firearms.  If you have never seen the Thompson Contender or Encore, you’re in for something special.  First off, let’s see if it’s a rifle, shotgun, or pistol.  That’s a simple question right?  Sure, and the simple answer is yes, no, and maybe.  Mine is a pistol that fires 410 or 45 Long Colt ammunition.

You’re probably thinking they just have a series of guns the same name and different models, right?  Well, not exactly.  In the case of both the Contender and the Encore, you own one, you can own them all.

According to the T/C website in reference to the Encore –

“When you purchase an Encore Pro Hunter, you enter a world of more than a hundred different hunting configurations. Lure in gobblers with a break-open turkey gun, tackle big game with a world-class muzzleloader and outsmart nature’s toughest predators with your trusty centerfire rifle—all from the same shooting platform.”

As you can see from the photo on the right, with just a couple of screws you can remove the barrel, grips, etc. to begin converting your Encore into an amazing number of firearms (see list below).

With the 410 barrel on my pistol, it makes a great single shot rabbit or squirrel gun that is fun to carry and even more fun to fire.  For complete details about Thompson/Center firearms, visit their website at www.tcarms.com
