Thompson Center Encore Pro Hunter 223/308/50BP rifle/pistol  Guns > Pistols > Thompson Center Pistols > Encore
Description: Here we have a Pro Hunter in good condition. It comes with three barrels and a stock, plus two scopes and holster. The first barrel is a fluted 15-inch (pistol length) chambered in the classic .308 Winchester. It comes with a matte black Burris 2-7x32mm scope. The second is a 15-inch pistol barrel chambered for the popular .223 Remington also fitted with a Burris 2-7x32mm scope but with a high gloss finish. A weaver base and scope rings are used to mount the scope. The third is a 26 3/8-inch 209x50 Magnum black-powder rifle barrel. It has a matte sliver scope mount (no scope) and an orange fiber-optic front sight. The buttstock is only meant for use with the 50 BP barrel or a centerfire barrel 16 inches or longer. Attaching it to the receiver along with a 15-inch or shorter barrel constitutes a Short-Barrel Rifle (SBR) under ATF regulations. Please see the pictures above. Also included is a carry case and a leather, scoped-pistol holster/bandolier. A new E-Z Tip Extractor has been installed on the 50 BP barrel with the original stored in the replacement’s packaging. It has minor pitting on it, which is strange, since the bore of the 50 BP appears to have seen little use. The three barrels exhibit minor surface marks. The .223 had a small ding on the lower side of the barrel, but it has been smoothed down. The frame does have some small spots on it – they could be micro-pits though it is hard to tell given their miniscule size – I have run some Flitz polish over these just in case. Overall, what is presented here is a good starting point for someone looking for a multi-role shooting platform. The Encore’s advantage lies in its ability to change calibers by simply replacing the barrel. And boy are there plenty of options on the market. Barrels can be found in a plethora of cartridges including .357 Magnum, .44 Magnum, .30 Herrett, .357 Herrett, .224 Valkyrie, .30-30 Winchester and its wildcats, .45 Colt, 6.5x55 Swedish, 22 K Hornet, 6.5 Creedmoor, .416 Rigby, .204 Ruger, .257 Roberts, 500 S&W Magnum, virtually any Ackley Improved cartridge, and MANY others. This allows it to be used for plinking, bench rest, target shooting, and hunting. If you are looking for a good target pistol/rifle with different caliber options, the Contender is the best choice.
