Thompson/Center has improved its already impressive Encore Pro Hunter™ with the addition of the new Encore Endeavor™. equipped with the revolutionary features of the Pro Hunter™, the Endeavor™ goes even further with its beautiful detail and added innovation. The Endeavor™ includes Speed Breech XT™, the breech plug that removes by hand…just a 90 degree turn and out. No tools required! New Energy Burners™ are included in each FlexTech® stock... these strategically placed spring coils are designed for greater movement and energy absorption, reducing stock shock and vibration up to 50% while reducing noise up to 20 decibels.
T/C’s Encore Endeavor... the ultimate gun for the ultimate adventure.
SPEED BREECH XT™
Like the Speed Breech™, the XT™ reduces fouling by 95%, needs no cleaning, never seizes, and now it can be removed by hand. No tools, no mess, 90° and out...
A rubber coil of arcs, that when placed at precise location in the stock achieves the maximum amount of shock absorption. More than any other stock innovation on the market.
All T/C muzzleloading rifles come with the patented feature QLA® (Quick Load Accurizor). QLA® allows the hunter or shooter to quickly and easily load their rifle by incorporating a false muzzle design into the barrel of the rifle. Accuracy is enhanced through the QLA® design by aligning the projectile with the rifling. The projectile is supported while the hunter or shooter is loading his rifle to assure the projectile is started exactly perpendicular with the rifling. The secret behind the QLA® is only removing the rifling (.0005 of material) while maintaining the groove depth of the bore. Other “muzzle guiding systems” only aid in starting your projectile; they do not work as a true false muzzle and cannot deliver the enhanced accuracy of the QLA® design.
The patented pivoting handle (Patent no. 6,145,235 Nov. 14, 2000) is integral with the solid aluminum ramrod. This convenient low profile handle eliminates the need for a palm saver or T-handle and makes loading your rifle quicker and less painful. Powder Rod® allows the hunter to load his rifle in the field more uniformly by applying the same seating pressure shot after shot. Hunters using Powder Rod® can now enjoy the same accuracy they get at the range using a range rod.
Rifles have become unmanageable to shoot with today’s magnum muzzleloading charges and ultra magnum cartridges. T/C has tamed these hard pounding rifles with their new FlexTech® stock system. T/C’s Master Gunmakers teamed up with Limbsaver®, known for their recoil reduction technology, to develop a process to absorb shock and vibration. The FlexTech® stock (patent-pending) by T/C lessens felt recoil by 43% and absorbs the harmful recoil and vibration that punishes the shooter and damages or loosens scopes. It incorporates four synthetic recoil absorbing arches that operate like a leaf spring. This creates a crush zone that allows the stock to compress during the recoil process. Each coil is unique in length allowing them to cancel different pitches and frequencies created during the shot. Every shooter’s style and body type is different. The FlexTech® system conforms to your shoulder and puts 50% more shock-absorbing material against your shoulder to disperse the recoil.
E-Z TIP EXTRACTOR™
This solid one-piece extractor features an all-steel design, and can be rotated to either the left or right hand side to allow easy access to the Speed BreechXT™. Simply rotate the extractor to one side or the other. There is a plunger on the bottom of the lug that locks the extractor into place when it is rotated to its upright position. Assuring perfect alignment with the Speed BreechXT™. The extractor also operates as a safety mechanism to assure the Speed BreechXT™ is locked into position. If the Speed BreechXT™ is not locked into position the extractor will not drop into the machined recess of the breech plug and will prevent the gun from closing.
