    I've read some posts on bedding the forearm of a TC Encore. Anyone know where to get instructions or a someone that can do this? I have no experience bedding a rifle but I am willing to try if it is not too difficult

    specialty pistols, Mike Bellm's, and or chase mountain's forum may be helpful. I know some guys have done it themselves with good redults.

    Have you looked into adding a hanger bar? Designed to free float the stock. I use a few washers to achieve similar results.

    Steve Stratton just did an Encore trigger job, cheapest around at $50.00. Good guy!
