FS: For Sale: Thompson Center (T/C) Encore – 209x50 and 7mm-08 Barrels
PAYPAL IS ADDITIONAL 3% (Or Gift it)
I have for sale a Thompson Center Encore with two (2) barrels, the 209x50 cal muzzleloader barrel and a 7mm-08 Barrel with a matching Leupold VX-I 3-9x40 Silver Matte Scope. Scope base and rings by Leupold, Butler Creek Flip-up Covers, Vero Vellini Sling, and stainless swivel studs. Also includes the Realtree Synthetic forearms for both barrels (they have different contours).
Estimated rounds on the muzzleloader barrel is 40 and on the 7mm-08 barrel is in the ballpark of 150.
All is in pretty good shape but there are handling marks that hopefully the photos show. There is a small spot of rust on the scope base where some cleaner took the bluing off. Mark on hammer from when I had hammer extension installed previously. Fitted with a Bellm’s TC Oversized hinge pin for super tight lockup. Read more --> Bellm TCs - Bellm Oversized Hinge Pins T/Cs

Looking for $1000 shipped. Started at $950 No Reserve.
I will ship everything to your door except the rifle itself. Assuming I can legally ship primers and ammo, I’ll have to look that one up. If I can't, IT WON'T BE INCLUDED. Shipping will be high with the extra barrel and all the goodies thrown in.
Please Message me with any questions or picture requests. Unless I’m hunting for the weekend, I always respond within 24 hours, usually faster. Your FFL must accept shipments from non-FFLs as I am not.
Also has the custom sized Limbsaver Recoil Pad installed (helps alot with this light rifle).
Also the trigger has been tuned by me with a specially cut Bellm's TC Wyoming Stone to match the sear angle. It breaks very light but I don't have a trigger pull gauge. I'd estimate in the 2# range. Bellm's is the place for TC stuff, I used their instuctions for trigger tuning as well, similar to other trigger jobs, but each has its quirks.
