For some time I’ve been wanting an Encore rifle. Unfortunately, TC doesn’t make one that I want. Here’s the run down.
Stainless receiver. Polished blued barrel. Walnut stocks. With barrels in 7mm Rem Mag, .338 Win Mag, .25-06, .375H&H and a 12 gauge rifled barrel. Then a couple short 16″ barrels in .308, .223, and .30-30… and I’m thinking a .35 Whelen and 7-30 Waters. A nice collection. There are several gunsmiths out there that specialize in TC Encore triggers, and this would also be a requirement for me. Parting it out, I’m probably looking at about 800 bucks for the first set up brand new, and then additional costs for the other barrels. But I’m not sure if I am wanting brand new. I’m thinking old… I’m thinking used. Used guns often have more “soul” than a brand new gun. I might start this as a “Project” gun. No hurry to build this as I’m in no rush… but I’m going to work on this. Many are going to ask “Why”. To those I simply ask “Why Not?” With a cool leather roll up kit for the barrels. That would be very cool.
This is Uber-Un-Tactical. I know. Many MadOgre readers wont understand this as there are no Rails and Pmags to go with this Single Shot system. No Bolt-Forward Assists or anything. I mean, yeah, you can throw on a Ching-Sling and be psudo-tactical if you want, but a simple leather sling would be ideal.
