I ordered a Bergara .50 cal. barrel for my Encore today from Midsouth. Mike B. likes them it appears, we shall see. My TC barrel was not very good. Gonna order some 300 Gr. Scorpions/CR sabots.

Thanks for all the replies.
Was Mike out or did you just not order from him? Mike has a tendency to check Bergara barrels over really well for his customers prior to them purchasing them. You'll find his seconds for sale on Ebay and I believe one other site. It appears that some Bergara barrels he receives doesn't meet his expectations, therefore he sells them as seconds.

No, I bought from Midsouth, only stating he seems to like them. If I get a dud, I will sell the frame, I tried one TC barrel & I won't go for 3. Bergara or TC for that matter should not sell 2nd's

Re: Pursuit UL XLT

I've owned a couple Traditions. Only guns I ever sold. IMHO you did well to stay away, the ones I had were poorly designed and poorly made.

Should have responded sooner........

Mike sells barrels that HE calls seconds and not what others would consider seconds. Mike's and exceptional gunsmith and knows more about Encore platform rifles than probably anyone in North America.
