T/C encore

I have been watching a lot of outdoor tv lately and I keep seeing people using the T/C encore (both the blackpowder and center fire versions).

Is this because T/C is a major sponsor or are the rifles really making a big impression with hunters?

If they are really that good I'd be very interested in getting one.

T/C encore

Welcome aboard. Wish I could answer your question but I've never seen one much less shot one. Does T/C sponser the shows your watching? That would lead me to believe they at least supply them and probably want them used. That would not mean their a good or bad rifle tho. I've heard they are a very nice rifle if you like break open single shots.

T/C encore

I was lucky that a couple of guys at the local store really knew a ton about T/C rifles. One guy had a 50 cal muzz., 30-06 and a 223 the other guy had 308 and 20 gauge rifled w/ scope and 204 ruger . They both hunted deer and elk along with coyotes and other varmints. They showed me a few that they had in stock ,some barrel options . I also got a chance to see a couple of tricked out ones that they had in for trigger adjustment and custom stocks. The owner even brought his out show me, a beautiful fully engraved 30-06 pistol w/ a muzzlebrake and gold trigger and hammer. He used it last year to shoot a moose in Canada. So I decided that I would buy one. Went back the next day and picked out a Prohunter SS w/ realtree stock. I also got a barrel in 270 win 28" and a 20 gauge rifled w/sights. Shot a pig with the 270 and it seemed to work as good as any gun I have ever shot. Liked it so much that I bought a pistol in 22-250 rem to shoot coyotes and maybe a small deer. If you buy one you might want to have the trigger smoothed and lightened to your needs. Some have a bit of unwanted creep in the trigger but it is easy and cheap to fix . Really good recoil management , this gun can be shot by even the smallest people. Super accurate w/ the right load and bullet. Just plain fun.

Thanks for the replies.

Granite that sounds about like what I wanted to hear. I am fairly interested in getting one.

Definitely interested in the blackpowder version.

I have all the centerfire hunting rifles that I *need* but I find myself getting really interested in trying out some new cartridges and with the Encore I could just buy a new barrel etc.

T/C encore

I recently bought one from E. Arthur Brown and am quite pleased with it. I got the pistol version and had them do an in house action job on it. The gunsmith who received it for me tried the trigger and was pleased with it after their work.
