I traded my elite today with both the 270 and 50 cal muzzleloader barrels and both stocks and forends.. I really do not know why other than I was in the trading mood. I work hard to get a gun to shoot well and then I get bored with it. I got a T/C encore with a 25-06 barrel and realtree synthecics and blued frame. I will hunt the rest of the season with my handi 243.
