SOLD/EXPIRED WTS/WTT: Encore Muzzle loader barrel


Oct 18, 2009
I've got a stainless muzzle loader barrel. It's a 209x50 with the ramrod, ez-tip extractor and black synthetic forend if you want it.

It's an older barrel that shoots very well and loads easily. I use Hornady SST 250 gr. with lock and load sabots and am getting around 1.5 inch accuracy at 100 yards with it. The breech plug removes nice and easy as it should as has always been greased when installed.

There are handling marks on the barrel and the remnants of some loc-tite that the previous owner used on the base. The handling marks are what is common with TC stainless as it shows every mark. The barrel lug is tinted a darker color, but is not rusted. It just has worn differently and shows a different tint?? Seems like it's made out of different metal. (see pic)

I have the open sights as well and will include a Leupold base.

This is a nice piece, but is used. If you want a show piece, don't buy it..! Locks up tight to frame and shoots very well.
SOLD>>>>>>. I'll work with someone on trades and offers as I'm always interested in trading..! No encore stuff though..

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
