I have been interested for many years but never pulled the trigger on being an owner.
I'm a successful handgun hunter, but want to give my prized .41 mag Redhawk to my Youngest(31 year old) son so he can enjoy it as I have. Before that Happens, I want to get a TC Contender/G-2. I haven't looked into it seriously before now. So honestly I'm not quite sure which direction to go. I won't be silhouette shooting, just plinking and Hunting.
I'm an experienced Reloader and look forward to the load finding journey.
My thoughts are to sell my 1950 Marlin 39A (graded @ 95%) to get my frame and at least one barrel.
I'm interested in any suggestions on how I might get where I need to be in this journey.
I'm older so my resources are mostly dedicated which is why I'm looking to sell by wonderful old Marlin 39A.
Any good guidance would be appreciated.
If you enjoyed the 41 mag in a wheel gun and have the loading gear look for a 41 mag T/C 14" barrel with the extra length comes more performance. I have two frames and 12 barrels and always looking for different calibers. Good luck with your journey.
Years ago, I bought a 14Ē Contender in .357 Herrett and put a 2X Leopold scope on it. That was the best scope at the time. Lots of great pistol scopes out there. I replaced the wood grips with Pachmayr rubber grips and put a sling on for carrying and shooting. The sling is great as I can put it over my head and climb or ATV with the gun across my back. It attaches to the barrel in front of the forearm and to the bottom of the hand-grip where the bolt attaches. I gave the gun an aftermarket spring kit which improved it. I love the setup and have taken a ton of deer with it, My buddy has the same in 7mm Waters with similar results and an uncle with one in .35 Remington and both are happy with their choices. You will be happy with the Contender. When I first got it my hunting buddies thought I was handicapping myself as they were all shotgun hunters,- rifles were not an option at that time. They were wrong as one shot is all that is necessary.
