Predator Gun: Two Options
I got as a present 2 years ago a used (but great condition) T/C Encore in .223. While I've only killed one fox with it, it seems to be a little overkill for fur.
I really want a .17 caliber cartridge. I don't know much about the MACH IV, the Bumble Bee, the Ackley, etc. but I want it to be centerfire and capable of any predator I might call in. I'm thinking fireball is the way to go. I've gotten nothing but good reports on it. Opinions here?
Now, I have two options. I'm in love with the Rem. Model SEVEN Predator and the .17 fireball option in this gun has recently been discontinued. While stores still have them now, I don't know how long/hard it will be to find this gun in the future in the .17 I want and if I want it, I need to start saving! lol.
Now, I could sell the Encore to fund this purchase. What is the going price for the Encore I described? I've never been crazy about the barrel switching, but I do want an inline. I think a T/C Triumph would have been more up my alley.
Or, my other option is to buy a .17 fireball barrel for the Encore. Does anyone know where they sell this?
Which do you all think is my better option? Selling Encore to get the SEVEN? Keeping Encore and buying SEVEN? Getting a .17 barrel for Encore?
Help me decide.
IF YOU SEND ME A PM, I WON'T GET IT USUALLY UNLESS I SEND ONE FIRST. REPLY & TELL ME TO PM YOU
