Hey Guys I just picked up a new 50 cal. T/C Encore Pro Hunter. I have been considering replacing the hinge pin because it does have some looseness to it. I was on Cecil Epps site and he has a ton of good information about the pro hunter. I was wondering if his hinge pin for $37.99 is what I should purchase or is there another manufactures pin thats just as good for less money. He also has a trick using heating aluminum tape which I may try first. I am amazed that T/C is aware of this problem but has done nothing to correct it. I also noticed that Cabela's sells his Variflame primer adapter kit which I ordered, I was thinking the hinge pin they also have may be his as well. Anyone know for sure? One more question does anyone have a good way to file down the ears on forearm stock to keep it from rubbing? I understand this is also a problem with the Pro hunter. I want to make sure I do a nice neat job and don't screw it up. I just want to take off a 1/16 or less on each side. Thanks for any help.
