Thompson Contender

Just curious if anyone has one, and if so, what's your opinion? I've been debating buying one for a couple years now.

Mt father has one...the pistol version, with a 45 long colt and a .223 barrell. Really accurate, and durable. One of the nicest guns I have seen. Personaly Im looking at the encore rifle.

The Thompson Contender is one of the most affordable , accurate , switch barrel single shot handguns on the market . It also has many custom grip configurations for your shooting needs .

Thanks for the link, Dazed. I've seen many Contenders at vcarious gun shows, but have never taken the leap and bought one. I'm looking for a new gun, and the uniqueness and versatility of the Contender attracts me. Thanks for the input folks!

I've always been intrigued by the TC. How long does it take to change barrels? I assume it's a single shot.

Yes it is a single shot, but they always say, "You only need 1 shot."

It takes average of 4-5 minutes, depending on your sights/scope. This is if you have sights/scope on your gun already and sighted in.

If you are cheap like me, then you get a nice scope, with some things called "Quick-Release" Rings. You can use these to "quickly" take your scope off one barrel and throw it on another. After sighting it in with on one barrel you either write down, or mark on the scope where to move the adjustments.

Of course you have to buy scope bases for both barrels.

Back to removing the barrel, all you have to do is remove the forend, then there is a hinge-pin holding the barrel into the action. It is easily removed with a punch or even a pen would work. The forend holds the hinge-pin, so there is no worry of the barrel ever falling off.

Anymore questions? Let me know.
