    I want one but I am skeptical of their accuracy. I am wanting to get a few barrels and use this as a multi purpose gun. I already have a long range shooter. I was wondering if these are a 1 moa rifle or pistol.

    One of my hunting buddies started off with one Encore in 300 mag. He was so impressed by 3/4 moa that he got another in 338 mag. Also sub moa. Then he sold off all his other rifles and now he has only Encores and 6 or 12 top ends. Go figure.

    So go for it !
    ...The resale on these is so good that if you don't like it, it will resale for almost retail.

    I haven't hunted with a long gun for 8yrs now...it's all pistol for me.
    My Contender and Encore pistols are more than capable.
    Here's my 7-30 Waters:

    So yes, they are more than capable.

    Thank you for the replies. I think I will be getting one. Are those custom or factory barrels?

    I have a 375jdj that is sub MOA and a 50b&m Alaskan that shoots just over that. Both are customs that JD Jones built for me. They may not be as accurate as a custom bolt pistol but I have no reservations using them at reasonable distances.

    Just finished putting a 7 mag together and it shoots below MOA with a TC barrel. Check out Bellm TC site he has numerous parts to really bring about all the accuracy the barrel has to offer. I use it as a truck/ATV gun for targets of opportunity. Dave
