I’m looking to buy TC Encore or contender sets, 1 barrel or several. If you have any you’d like to sell please let me know! Thanks for your time!
There is a face book group for TC Encore barrels and items. Might check there as well.
I just looked at the barrel page. All the rules say NO sales of any kind. Too bad. Not even any “in for discussion” posts.
Good evening. I have a Contender set. 16" 30 Herret with Leupold 4X EER, 22 Hornet and a 20 inch 357 Maximum barrel with several grips, holsters and a shoulder stock. Dies for each and a big assortment of bullets, brass, loaded ammo, etc. Several boxes of 357 Maximum new unprimed brass. Extra Leupold bases and rings, etc. I will deal.

Heck, my photos above also show the Denver-made Redfield 2.5-7x Extended Eye Relief scope on the .223 barrel mounted to the Contender frame.

I shot photos and posted them for @Varminthunter23 who I've also PM'ed. I will let him PM me...
If he passes on this, I will post on a new Classified thread with a price for all.
Bringing this back up. I’ve been able to buy 2 sets, would like to have a few more if anyone wants to sell? Thanks!
Unfortunately my Encore and Contender are SBR's. If you want to trade a nice 22-250 Encore barrel for a sub 16" Encore barrel, let me know.
Are you looking for pistol barrels only of rifle barrel sets also?
