I just read that the custom shop Fox Ridge , for T/C is going out of business by the years end. I am a fan of T/C and will be gun)sorry to see the custom shop go away. I have a T/C contender, I never had an Encore frame. The barrels I have are 30/30 IMP. 14"and a 30 herrret 10". The 30 herret is a custom reloading required.
