    Default Just Got a Thompson Center Contender

    I picked a T/C Contender today at a local gun show with 5 barrels. Can't wait to play with this baby. It came with a number of exotic barrels that I don't have any reload data for. Can anyone tell me about the 25-35 and the 30-223?

    Thanks T.I. in Colorado

    See my posting in your above thread. What other barrels did you get with it? Pistol? Carbine? We speak Contender around here!

    Default Contender Barrels

    I traded a Glock 37 (GAP .45) Fullsize pistol yesterday for an orginal T/C Contender with 2 barrels. The guy had 4 other barrels which I swapped out ammo and accessories for another barrel and picked up the rest for $75/each. They all came in a custom case with slots for each barrel with scope. The T/C also had the hougue style grips and the wood was in the case.

    The exotic calibers were:

    30-30 (Original T/C Barrel) "14
    .41 Mag (Original T/C Barrel "14
    25-35 (Original T/C Barrel "12
    30/223 (Unknown Manufacture) "14
    .22LR (Original T/C Barrel) "12

    Cheers T.I.

    I have two frames 12 barrels and 2 carbine kits. I can take anything from a sparrow to a moose with mine. The wildcats, look up JD Jones and ask him for data.
