pdkfishing Completely off-topic. Can you switch barrels on the Henry single shots? I read something about taking them down that warned against removing the forend, haven't seen anything on switching barrels.

I have one. Had it years before I even discovered the single shots. There is just something about single shots. I also like the weight of them.

Mule 11 Twingrls5. I misread your post and apologize. I see now what you meant. From bow range to 200 yards. Sorry. The Thompson platform is addictive and I find them very accurate within the lengths of barrels and calibers I shoot. I have only had 1 that would not shoot well and it was the scope not the barrel...

dstegjas I got into shoot contenders over 25 years ago. It wasn't because they were a cheaper way to have multiple calibers. Although that is certainly a perk. It was more of a challenge for me. I had started hunting with a pistol a few years earlier. First with a Colt Trooper in 357 and then a S&W 629 in 44 magnum. The contender allowed me to extend my range and also have the challenges that go along with a single shot pistol. You have only one shot, so make it a good one.

I've had a lot of T\C barrels both pistol and rifle over the years. I'm down to a hand full now mainly because I've settled on what calibers I like and want to hunt with. My go to deer hunting configuration in a pistol is a scoped 12" bull barrel in 44 magnum. The frame has a set of pachmyer grips on it. My hunting buddies call it black death. Only because it has killed a lot of deer over the years. Although my MGM 21" barrel in 357 maximum is a lot of fun to shoot too. I had a nice stock and forearm from Bullberry made for it several years ago.

DEACONLLB I watch the things that sellers are trying to get for their stuff and have to almost laugh at their prices for TCR stuff one fellow has a for grip for a TCR and he has it listed for 165.00 and has a bid on it I have bought them from Ed for 35 to 50 dollars at the very most they are worth is 100 dollars. I think they list and hope someone will jump on it. One seller had a 22-250 TCR barrel a while back after he had ran it for 6 times I sent him a message with an offer and he took it.

I rarely purchase anything at a show but the price for the contender was reasonable.
My thoughts on barrel pricing is based on what I see on gun broker, ebay, etc.
With most having a selling price in the $350-400 range, that's a lot of money for just a barrel.

I have tried everything in the book, and they are just not as accurate as my bolt guns or the CVA. So far, my CVA 7mm-08 has out shot any of the rifle length TC barrels I have tried. Kind of annoying when the entire CVA is less than a TC barrel.


Really wished CVA would chamber a 357 mag in the Hunter model.
