Don't know if there is a production problem at TC or whether some mail order supplier are just waiting for the right season, but if you check most of the mail order suppliers, they are OUT OF STOCK on most encore barrels.

There were plenty before christmas.

This is a letter from EABCO that I received today. They just may have what you are looking for. For what it is worth they are great company to deal with.

Dear Friend and Customer,
We bought out a lion’s share of the most recent Encore barrel production
that has
just come out of Thompson Center Arms. Much of it has already shipped out
to our
customers who back ordered. But we still have a good supply for sale...
and at 2002
prices for just a little while longer! If you’ve been hunting for a
barrel, go to our
website at http://www.eabco.com/encore.html and click in your order.
Package deals? You can figure a package price and click it in on-line by
going to
our Package Deal page at http://www.eabco.com/pkgdeals.html.
Need a Scope? The Tasco Mil Dots are back and under full warranty as new
production from Bushnell. Order at http://www.eabco.com/Tasco02.htm.
We have a lot of these Encore barrels on hand and a lot more coming in
by the
middle of next week. But there are limited numbers of each chambering so
please
order early. For fairness and efficiency, we will give on-line shopping
cart orders first
priority... So click in your order, today!
Thank You,
Eben Brown

I talked to T/C about two weeks ago and they said with all of the hunting shows that have the Encore shown on there programs that they are selling more Encores than they can make.They also said they have orders out for seven thousand guns thats not including there standing orders.There glad to see the orders but are having trouble keeping up.

For what it's worth

I ordered a custom barrel from EABCO about a week ago-
Apparently the shortage is in standard barrels-
They said my custom comming for Fox Ridge should be there in 8-12 weeks-
I did hear from a dealer near me that TC was changing manufacturing location so this was causing a shortage in standard barrels as well-
Aslo heard the big gun show comming up could cause delivery problems-
Again none of this is from TC just what people have said

Encore Barrels

I have a .270 26" bull barrel on order through my local gun shop from Fox. Gun shop was told 12 weeks minimum. Owner told Fox it was for a really good customer and the customer would like to have it ASAP. "They" (Fox) said "so does everybody else"! LOL Well as long as it is A1 when I get it, I really do not care about the wait.
