Up for bid is a new Thompson/Center Quick Release Forend, in Hardwoods Camo. This is for Encore Rifle barrels. It would also fit ProHunter barrels but does not have the finger grip panels to match a ProHunter stock. The forend pictured sold; successful bidder will receive a virtually identical one, possibly in unopened box. I usually run Encore and ProHunter Hardwood Camo stocks in other auctions.
With Quick Release, you mount stand-off studs on the barrel. The forend locks on or releases with a turn of the coin slot button on the side. A set of studs is included. Factory item number for the forend is 7591.
USA bidders and shipment only at the stated shipping charge; shipment to Canada would be much more expensive. Please bid only if you intend to pay. Ask any questions before you bid, and be certain this is the forend you need before bidding. There is no return unless I have inaccurately described this forend. Successful bidder is asked to contact me within 3 days to set payment plan and confirm shipping address, and is asked to have payment to me within 10 days of auction close.
PAYMENT: Early in 2010 I opened a GPAL (was GUNPAL) account to accept credit card payments. BECAUSE I WAS SOON TOTALLY RIPPED OFF BY GPAL, HOWEVER, I CANNOT ACCEPT PAYMENT THROUGH THEM. I again have no way to accept credit cards and must go back to Money Order or Cashier Check payments.
SHIPMENT: I ship Priority Mail, usually within one business weekday of receiving valid payment. We can do shipping discount for multiple auctions paid and shipped together.
I like to give and receive positive feedback. Thanks for looking.
NOTE, 03/23/11: To the person who asked, caliber of the barrel does not affect the exterior dimensions of the barrel. If you have a factory 26" Encore rifle (or factory 28" Pro Hunter rifle) barrel, this forend will fit. I've tried 3 times to reply to your question; delivery to your Blackberry has failed each time. Thanks for your inquiry.
