With all the great looks, quality and accuracy of the very popular Encore Pro Hunter™, the Pro Hunter™ FX is a fixed barrel (non-interchangeable) Muzzleloader. The Pro Hunter™ FX is a dedicated black powder rifle and features the tough-as-nails Weather Shield® coating in Stainless Steel color, making the FX incredibly corrosion-resistant and the price is sure to please every hunter.
Pro Hunter FX features a Weather Shield break-open action and fluted 26" barrel. The T/C precision barrel includes the QLA® Muzzle System for easier loading. The new Speed Breech®3 hand-removable breech plug makes cleaning easy. Reversible Swing Hammer® allows easier access under mounted scopes for both left and right-handed shooters. Adjustable Williams Fiber Optics are included. Drilled and tapped for scope mounts. FlexTech® recoil reducing stocks come standard in black composite or Realtree AP® Camo .
The New Speed Breech® 3 is the latest in hand-removable, threaded breech plug technology. Unlike competitors' threaded breech plugs, the Speed Breech 3's triple lead thread design gives it more area between the threads to help prevent breech plug seizing from powder corrosion. The triple lead thread design equates to easier removal with fewer turns than conventional plugs. Removal and cleaning just got easier with Thompson/Center's new Speed Breech 3.
Pro Hunter™ features a rotating hammer design called the “Swing Hammer”® that can be off-set to allow easy access to the hammer spur. This innovative design is patent-pending and addresses the concern about reaching the hammer when the rifle is scoped. The hammer is keyed to allow the spur to be placed in the center, left hand or right hand positions.
Recoil reduction technology that features a soft touch comb that takes the bite out of muzzle rise, while the smooth surface finish allows the cheek to slide forward during firing. Over molded finger grooves in the stock and rubber grill pads in the forend give you firm control of the rifle in both wet and dry conditions. Sling swivel studs are molded into the stock and forend to eliminate the possibility of pulling out. T/C’s FlexTech® system is just one of the many advancements given to the new Pro Hunter™.
T/C's technology department set out to design an advanced, tough-as-nails, corrosion protection system. This system, when applied to the barrel and other critical metal parts, makes the gun nearly impervious to rust. Environmental testing proves Weather Shield® is 50x more corrosion resistant than Stainless Steel alone. Available on various Icon®, Triumph®, Omega Z-5's, Venture's™, Pro Hunter™ XT and Impact. T/C's Weather Shield® will help users protect their investment, because hunters never know where their next hunting adventure will take them.
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 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.
