Re: Whats up with the TC Encore

Asked a sales associate at Cabelas Hamburg the same thing in September. He said someone came in and took all the barrels even... Last I saw they were still selling the barrels in the catalog???????

You can quite probably thank S%W for this. Hate to say it, but, when S%W took over...TC quality took a dump.

S&W is slowly phasing T/C out.........................................They have already cut the primitive blackpowder by 90%. What is next???

T/C was slowly starting to go down hill right after they had a fire there years ago. When S&W bought them, they put the final nail in the coffin. S&W has really ruined a once great company

Re: Whats up with the TC Encore

I have been contemplating selling all of mine. If nothing else, in protest of what Smith has done to a once outstanding company. How times have changed.

Re: Whats up with the TC Encore

S&W will never get 1 penny of my money-ever. That is on anything made since they bought T/C. It tells me they bought them for the write off or for all of their patents. We`ll see which one it is very soon I would think.
