Thompson/Center Revives the Encore Pro Hunter

Thompson/Center Revives the Encore Pro Hunter

For 2015, Thompson/Center Arms is reintroducing the popular single-shot T/C Encore Pro Hunter.

The new T/C Encore Pro Hunter is available as a fully complete firearm, with either a rifle option or a pistol option available. The rifle version is available in a wide variety of centerfire, muzzleloader and shotgun barrels, while the pistol variant comes chambered in .223 or .308. Both models feature the Encore Pro Hunter's same well-known break-open action.

The Encore Pro Hunter is an interchangeable firearm system, and the platform accepts a number of accessory stocks and barrels ranging from .204 to .500 S&W Magnum.

The T/C Encore is an ultimate multitasker. Use it as a centerfire rifle one day, muzzleloader the next or a shotgun when it's time to bust out the rifled slugs.
The T/C Encore's simple break open design features very few moving parts that are easily interchangeable.
Iron sights and a 15" fluted barrel give the T/C Encore pistol distinct differences over traditional handguns.
Similar to the rifle, the interchangeable nature of the T/C Encore pistol allows shooters to switch barrels easily.
