Encore Pro Hunter , just a heads up !!
I have worked on 4 of these guns in the last month and I have to say that I've very dissapointed with the QC from Thompson Center with these new "up graded" guns.
All of these gun have had trigger weights in the 8-11lb range !!! with so much creep that is very rough its awfull and only one of the guns had the trigger guard threaded for the over travel screw , all the internal trigger parts have very large casting marks..
All of the frames have the hinge pin holes reamed way over sized , so much so that the Bellm 1x pin will slide right through and fall out and the 2x pin requires very little pressure to push in and when the hole is measured its out of round.
One of the guns is a member heres 12ga slug gun , this barrel has no sites and is drilled and tapped for a scope base , the trouble is that the barrel is so damn thin that you only get 4 threads from a 6-48 screw to hold the base on and when the cheap crappy scope base screws that come with it were swapped out for better torx head screws the threads pulled out when they were tighted with 3 fingers from a screwdriver !!! So now the base has to be bedded and glued to the barrel , any machinest should know better than that and said somthing about maybe soldering the base to the barrel or not offering it in 12ga or somthing !!
Its taking so long to stone the triggers down on these things that I'm basicaly doing it for free , I'm not gonna go up on my prices cause TC is shipping out junk but I should send them a bill for componsation just to see what they would say.
In my oppinion you are better off getting an older gun and just installing a Sim's recoil pad , the off set hammer isin't worth the trouble
I just figured that I would let anybody that thinking about getting one of these what kind of troubles I'm finding with them.
