I believe 45-70, 45LC and 30-30, I have 222, 223 and 7mmTCU (223 necked up to 7mm) rifle barrels for my contender. The TCU worked this year on a 395# black bear.John Henry said:
The visible difference is there's NO engraving on a G2 (unless it was a special run or custom done). They are easy to distinguish from an old style contender, but they do look similar to an Encore, just smaller. G2's are easily identified by this lack of engraving and that the serial numbers start with the prefix "G". Stainless old style contenders had an "S" prefix, and Armor Alloy had an "A", etc.rhbuilds said:whats the difference between a standard contender and a G2 frame? i have a contender frame from mid 90's. also i see that the encore is the top dog frame.
