My new favorite gun.
 
After years with Rugers,Handis, Mossberg, CVA and Browning rifles I put together a TC Contender Carbine. And it is now my favorite deer rifle. It is so short and light just a joy to carry and hunt all day long.
With a 16 inch 44 Magnum barrel it is only 30 inches long and weighs in at a whopping five pounds. Perfect for my neck of the woods where deer are not seen beyond 80 yards. Can't wait for next season.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...bde3721173.jpg

Digin' the shorty look! Leupold 1-4x20 scope? Is the scope usable that low?

very nice. I like the contender carbine also. I have 357 magnum, 22 Hornet, and 22 lr carbine barrels

had a pair of them just like that. A 3030 and a 4570. My old man laid claim to both.

Ah Yes...An ideal rifle for the very young or the very old...I'm on one end or the other...can't remember which. Come to think of it...It might just work for the in between guys and especially gals too. Good shootin' to ya!

BTW You were darn lucky to find a S-16 44 barrel. It's one of the hardest to come by.

I too have a setup with the 16 1/4" barrel. Mine is stainless and chambered in 7-30 waters. I put a Nikon P223 scope on mine, wanted a short scope for the short barrel. It definitely ranks among the favorites. I also have a CVA in 35 remington w/ 20" barrel that is among the favorites.

The scope is a Leupold 2x shotgun scope and I wanted mounted as low as possible. I have a hammer spur mounted to the left side of the hammer , it seems to work better that way on my rifles. (I use the spur on the right side for handguns)

Well engineered!

About 5 years ago I owned an Encore with a 16 inch barrel in 375 Winchester. I loved that gun but at the time it wasn't legal for deer hunting in the state of Iowa so I sold it. Last year that all changed and it is now a legal option for deer hunting. Worstest sellers remorse that I have ever had!
