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.

Thanks!

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!

Ken

      For details fished 18 to 21 feet of water away from the city on ice. The bait that the fish preferred was again the smallest pug bug with black maki mino or white. Red, watermelon, shiner, and pink did not work. The snitch was able to detect the lightest bites as my dad was use a blue ice noodle and was not having any luck. Once I got my dad to switch to one my meat rigs it was game on. He was using a older st. croix legend with white custom jigs spins 3mm tungsten jig. He was adding a waxworm and caught a few fish but I was still out fishing him 10 to 1 or more. I did get 8 gills over 9 inches which was great to see for this lake.
