I thought I had my heart set on a Remington 700 mountain lss or a Winnie model 70 extreme weather...then I picked up an Encore and felt how balanced it was in my hands. I wasn't really planning on buying, but after a few moments of glancing through the TC catalog I picked out a stainless 7mm-08 with a black stock! Should be here in a week or so...can't wait to get it out on the range! Still deciding on a scope for it, though. Definitely sticking with Leupold, just not sure if I want to go matte black or silver, 2.5-8 or 3-9, V-XII or V-XIII???? So many decisions! LOL

Welcome to madness!!!

Years ago a bad dealing with a 700 Sendaro sent me down the path of the Encore and I have not looked back.

I'd go with a 3-9x40 V-XII, save a few bucks so you can buy another barrel for it!!!

Good luck getting your TC in a week or so. I have been waiting on a G2 pistol frame for 2 MONTHS.

I ordered a custom Encore frame(catalog)last week and they called me Tuesday to tell me it is in!!! Took less than 10 days from order to the shop receiving it.
I hope to pick it up Friday!!!

Congrats on your new encore! I can't speak for how good the SS looks with a silver scope on it but I can tell you I have three bbl's for my SS (black synthetic stock) and they all have silver bases and black matte scopes and they look great.

Yeah looks like I will not be picking mine up until Monday since the snow isn't stopping!!!

I don't think the rebates apply to me being I bought a custom frame and will be getting a custom barrel!!

Well, she's a beauty! I can't wait to top her off with a scope and do a little shooting! Just wish some of this snow would melt away so I can get to the range without killing myself!!!

Good luck with the new Encore-You will love it!!!
I picked up my frame today----It is nice and just as I expected. I also ordered my barrel from the custom shop--It should take 10-12 weeks they said. That is time enough to save for a scope!!
