Well Murphy's law strikes. My TC Encore 243 Barrel arrived yesterday from Midway. I can't even install it on my frame because the forearm holes are off!!! :-[ Looking down the bore, it was absoluly filthy. It looks like someone shot lead bullets out of it it was so dirty. I will be calling Midway today to see if I can exchange it. If not, I will really be pissed when TC gets the phone call.
