Thompson/Center Encore® Pro Hunter™ Centerfire Rifles
Fluted stainless steel barrels
Precisely machined target crowns and chambers
Innovative rotating hammer spurs
Pro Hunter's stainless steel barrels deliver the highest muzzle velocity available. They come with precision fluting to strengthen the barrels, dissipate heat and balance rifles for natural handling. T/C employs the latest CNC technology to machine both the target crown and the chamber on every Pro Hunter barrel. Each is machine shot at 100 yards by a Master Gunmaker to ensure accuracy. An innovative rotating hammer design called Swing Hammer™ allows the hammer spur to be offset to either side, addressing the concern about reaching the hammer when the rifle is scoped. T/C teamed up with Limbsaver® to develop stocks that absorb shock and vibration. These FlexTech™ stocks on Pro Hunters reduce felt recoil up to 43% by incorporating four synthetic recoil-absorbing arches. The resulting crush zone allows the stocks to compress during the recoil process and makes shooting more enjoyable.
