I really like the thumbhole. It actually seems to me that the recoil isn't as bad because my hand takes some of it.

nice looking guns... helps to remind me that I need to "re-inventory" all my firearms and document the serial #'s again.. I lost my original list & have aquired several guns since !

good looking guns, and I need to do the same, ie, inventory and document my guns.

Me too, only problem is I never sell one. I did a quick list at lunch today, I counted 24, not sure if I got 'em all or not.

I've got four others that I sold, but don't remember anything other than what they were, so I left them off.

2 of those I wish that I had never sold. Most of the guns that I have now have enough sentimental value that they will never be sold.

Here is a tip for you.

Take the butt plate off the stock.

Put a peice of paper in ithe bolt hole in the stock that says " This gun is the property of (your name), address phone number"

"If this paper is in this gun, it has been stolen"

I did this for years. loaned a gun to a guy and forgot about it (Weatherby 300 mag) I asked him about 7 months later and he told me it had been stolen.

I got a police report and claimed it as a loss on my income tax.


I saw it in a shop and knew it was mine as I has one scratch about 1/4 inch long on the forearm.

I told the store owner it was mine and he asked me prove it and I told him I recognized the scratch.

He told me to get lost. I called the police and had an officer come to the store, asked to see the gun, took a screwdriver and removed the butt plate and showed the officer the piece of paper and then pulled out my drivers lisc.

natuarally I walked out with MY gun and he took the loss.

When I sold a gun I always took the paper out and showed the new owner what and why I did it.

Just a though guys.......I know that 905 of the guns stolen are never seen again........I was lucky.

Oh yeah........the next time I ran in to my "freind" we were no longer friends............

If he was the one that soldit or pawned it, he should have been charged. Could they trace it back to him?

Yes we could.

He payed the guy the money back he got for selling my gun to him.

I did not press charges, I just pressed a fist or two upside of his head a few times.

Here is a pic of my latest toy. Encore frame, 7mm Rem Mag with a Shilen Select barrel built by Matchgrademachine out of Utah. It is 26 in SS, with a integral muzzle break, fluted, topped with a Schmidt & Bender......as you can see it is a real shooter.....

The recoil is very minimal. The heavy barrel along with the muzzle break really makes it comfortable. Acutally, when shooting it on this set up, the rifle never comes out of the rest. I also have a 7mm-08 for my Encore, and I honestly believe that it has more recoil than the 7 mag. I am a super fan of muzzle breaks!!

If you are an Encore fan, check out http://www.matchgrademachine.com Their prices are very reasonable. I just ordered a barrel identical to my 7mm Mag but in 7mm-08. After shooting the first one I had to order another, I chose the 7mm-08 as I have at least 6 boxes of ammo for my other barrel, thus my desire to sell my factory barrel. Any offers?????

cooper, have you done or have you had trigger work on your encore? I want to lighten my trigger a little and I am debating whether I should do it myself or have it done.

I actually got lucky when I got my Encore several years ago. First, the factory 7mm-08 barrel is a 1 inch and under barrel. 2nd, the trigger on my Encore is absolutely awesome. I took it to a gunsmith with the intent of having it smoothed out a bit. He tested the poundage on it, and took 3 readings, 2 were just under 3 pounds and the third was exactly 3 pounds. It breaks clean and crisp without any creep. So I just left it alone, and am happy. There is a company on the internet strattencustom.com, I believe is the web site who specializes in trigger work for the encore. I got the name of this company, as the guy who owns the company that made my barrel recommended it, as it is his father. I would probably be inclined to send it to him if I were considering a trigger job.....just my opinion.

I was thinking of doing it myself or sending it to this company, Bellm TCs, Inc. their web site has instructions for doing your own trigger work on the encore. It doesn't look that complicated so I may try it. I don't know what my trigger is set at right now but I want it around 2.5-3 lbs.
