TC Encore/Pro Hunter Muzzleloader BarrelBasic 26" Weather Shield Barrel w/Speed Breech 3 Fits Thompson Center Encore, Pro Hunter and Endeavor frames. This Pro Hunter "Basic" barrel is 26" long, Weather Shield finish, 209x50 caliber, fluted, and includes a weaver style Scope base. It does NOT include a front or rear sight. We call it a "Basic" barrel because it's an excellent foundation to start with when you plan on adding custom sights (like our PeepRib Package) or telescopic sights. Drill and tap is required if you plan on adding a front sight. The new Speed Breech 3 is a breech plug you can easily remove for cleaning... Screw it in or out with your fingers. There's no extractor... 209 primers are simply removed and replaced with your fingers. Free Scope Mount - TC packs a free Weaver style black scope base with these barrels. The rings are NOT included. The base accepts any Weaver Style scope ring. Our Keylock Rings or Warne Rings are a good choice.
