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!

      Anyone know the trout situation on square? The only info I can find is quite vague...DNR website says stocking to resume in fall 2016. I've e-mailed and called the DNR, but haven't gotten any responses from them. Just curious if anyone knows whether it was stocked or not. Would like to go there before the season closes, but don't want to waste $5 if there are no trout in there

      My brother wants me to update his lx7 this is the first update sinice he bought it. I have a vexliar so there's no updates. Is a marcum pretty easy to update hook it up to computer and let her go? Does it come with a cable like USB to what ever the marcum is?
