T/C Encore won't group

Postby patinlouisiana » Sun Jan 13, 2013 1:46 pm

I have been fighting with my Encore all year trying different ammo and such...

Today I though I would swap scopes and see what that does.

When I started to take it down this is what I found....

Well at least it is a cheap fix.

Dang! No wonder you couldn't get it sighted in. I hate those aluminum rings! That's the first time I've seen one that cracked. Usually the threads just strip out.

Dang I have never seen the Talley one piece fail like that. Do you know what they were torqued at? I have that same unit on a few guns but now have switched to DNZ Game Reapers on everything.

They have been on that gun since 2006.
Near as I can remember they were torqued to 1 inpound too much :W:

Don't know if the site will help you or not but this guy claims to be an Encore specialist.

FYI.

Talley Mfg. contacted me early this morning to see if my mounts were 1" or 30 mm.
They are sending out a replacement set today at no charge.

I had sent them an email and photo the night before they replied.

The new tops from Talley Mfg. came in Saturday.
I should be able to get them mounted by next September 30th. :ylsuper:

PS I was very pleased with their customer service.
