View Full Version : Any companies making barrels for Thompson Center?

Lots of Contender and Encore shooters like Bullberry.
There's also Match Grade Machine.
But MGM is formerly Virgin Valley, which apparently left a few people hanging when they went under (stopped operations).

Trying to find a company that makes barrels for the Thompson Center Encore rifle....anyone know of any?
Tried the "normal" (co.'s) ones...but nothing yet.
Bullberry is a popular one. I'd personally go with SSK Industries. Too lazy to link :cool:

This is a good place to visit, lots of info:
Bergara Barrels makes Encore & Contender barrels, less expensive but supposedly of very good quality thanks to Ed Shilen.
There's also Foxridge (part of T/C) and E A Brown Co (EABCO) - actually I think EABCO carries the T/C factory line.
These guys are supposed to be very, very good: http://www.ottllc.com/reviews.html
I have about 20 barrels or so from various manufacturers, never really been disappointed in any.
What barrel/caliber are you looking for?
