Thompson Center Encore info

2 posts in this topic

I posted this in the shooting sports section as well.

I am wondering what a good price would be to pay for a two year old Thompson Center Encore. The gun has the black powder barrel and a scope along w/ it. Not sure the brand of the scope. I know the gun has been well taken care of. Also the gun has the camo finish. It has maybe 40 rounds shot through it.

I paid $500.00 last year for a perfect 2 year old stainless/camo. My buddy bought a new blued/walnut for $479.00 last fall.

Remember scopes are not yet legal during the muzzleloader only season (and I hope they never are). You can use it during the rifle season if you want to shoot black powder. They are great guns.

I am going to buy a shotgun barrel and sell the turkey gun. My plans also include looking into buying a centerfire rifle barrel also. We are in the preliminary stages of planning a caribou hunt and I'll take one gun and 3 barrels. This way if the wind is too strong for my muzzleloader, I can shoot rifle cartridges. Then if I'm lucky and tag out, I can chase Ptarmigan with the shotgun barrel!

Good Luck!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps 
      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
