    Guns Can Can,,, Guns.. I know you didn't think of that because you're Canadian...:D ;)

    Anyway does anybody have anything to say about the TC encore that has 86 interchangeble barrels??? I just saw this in a mag and was wondering if these things hold up to being taken apart and put back together all the time and wanted some views firsthand... http://www.tcarms.com/TC_HTML/TC_Enc_R.htm

    I can't get one here in Cali for some reason. But, I have heard, read and seen nothing but good things about them. They are durable, as you would expect from a major firearms company. If I could get my hands on one, I wouldn't hesitate to buy it.

    Can't be that much different from the Contendor, and they have been around at least 30 years. Used to be, the .45 LC barrel had a choke on the end of it, so you could shoot .410 shells also!!!

    A guy I work with had an Encore, he said the thing was damn near indestructible. He reloads and he said the only reason he broke it is because he loaded a round WAY too hot (like 30gr over) and it broke the pivot pin. The action was still totally fine, as was the barrel.

    Cool thing is once you get the action, the barrels don't need FFL

    about 600 -800 and some change depending on what barrel you started with? :dunno: and the barrels would run about 250???

    I've got a Contender with a couple barrels. The barrel you DO NOT want is the 10" .223 Rem. Unless you like fireballs and going deaf thru your hearing protection.
    Also, 170gr .30-30 factory loads hurt. More than hopped up 265gr. .44 Mag loads and definitely more than hopped up 300gr. .44 Mag loads.

    Contenders are the shizzel. I'd love to have one. I had a friend that had a .223 bbl... it was kick ass. :thumb: Do they make a .444 Marlin bbl? now that would really rock. Talk about a great backup gun in bear country. :grin:
