This is a beautiful set which has been inside a safe for years. These barrels are all Thompson Center and as you know made specifically for this frame. This gun has adjustable Double set triggers, which set this gun apart from all others made during this time. The bluing on all of these barrels is almost perfect aside from one small mark on the 30-378 barrel. I'd rate the bluing at 98%-99%.
The wood is upgraded, and has no marks, dings, or dents. The forend for the shotgun is not cut from the same wood as the Stock set, and is a few shades lighter in color than the other wood. It has no imperfections, but it is lighter.

The custom barrels are:
23" 30-06 w/ Leupold one piece base
23" 7mm Rem Mag w/ one piece base
24 1/2" 30-06 bbl rechambered into a 30-378 Weatherby Mag w/ brake & Leupold one piece base
25" 12 Ga Shotgun bbl w/screw in choke capable of shooting up to 3 1/2" Magnum Shells

Taken from an earlier post.....many folks that don't know the difference between "Contenders" and the TCR (Thompson Contender Rifle) series of rifles. There are two TCR series - The 83's which were produced from 1983 through 1987, and 87's which were produced from 1987 to 1991. (That information comes "straight from the horse's mouth".) THEY ARE NOT "EARLY" CONTENDERS.

This rifle is the '83 series, Aristocrat model - meaning it has dual set triggers, cut checkering, upgraded wood, and a raised cheekpiece.

I will not sell any part of the set separately. If you could even find someone to do it, you'd be hard-pressed to get a new barrel, especially one in the original high polish, for less than $500.

This set is from an estate, and the asking price is $1,500.00
Pictures available .... Please ask for pictures via email, I'll reply with pictures asap.

Please feel free to make any offer. This price is negotiable . Not open to trades. This set must ship to an FFL. Shipping price will be set at close with buyer. Set will ship in a plastic hardcase.
