T/C Contender .223 Rem

I'm in the market for one of these. Can someone provide a link where I might be able to pick up a good used one for a decent price. Thanks for the help.

buy the G2 contender frame you will like it better.

Go to gunsamerica, gunbroker and auctionarms sites.

do internet search for contender barrels and 4-5 plus sites will come up

I have had the 10", 14" and 21". Go with the 14"

www.bellmtcs.com is a good site for T/C info

If you want to use for LR varminting, then the Burris 2-7, 3-9, 4-12x LR pistol scopes are the best pistol scopes.

You can find a good used Nikon, Leupold or T/C fixed powers on ebay reasonable. T/C also has a 2-7 that is decent. The others all have extremely limited field of view IMO except the ones I named.

I love my super 14 223 contender. I have a 4x Leupold on it that I like but more power would be nice. I was looking at a new 2.5-8 Leupold that had nice FOV and real good eye relief. I was very suprised. It is a little spendy but very nice.

I've got both a G2 and an Encore configured as rifles in .17 Reminton with which I am very happy.
