This is a Thompson Center Model 83 Hunter Deluxe rifle, which is a single-shot, top lever break open rifle. These guns were only manufactured in 1992 and feature double-triggers with an upgraded walnut forearm and stock. This Hunter Deluxe comes with three tapered heavy barrels; .243 WIN, .270 WIN and a 300 WIN MAG barrel. All three barrels come with scope bases and rings. The .243 WIN and .300 WIN Magnum barrels have T/C rings and bases while the .270 WIN barrel has Redfield-style rings and bases. The .270 WIN and 300 WIN MAG barrels are 25" long and both are outfitted with T/C's unique muzzle break, the Muzzle Tamer. The .243 WIN barrel is 24" long and does not have a Muzzle Tamer. The bottom of the receiver is stamped with the T/C logo and "-MAG-" below the logo (see photos).
All three barrels and action are finished in T/C's Hi Luster blue. Blue is 99% on the barrels and action. There are a few light scratches in the barrels, with the most noticeable scratch being in the top of the .243 WIN barrel (see photos). There's also a small nick in the blue, on top of the .300 WIN Magnum barrel, otherwise the blue has a very nice deep shine and is in excellent condition (see photos). The bore's in all three barrels are in very good to excellent condition with crisp rifling and no pitting. The scope rings and bases have some scratches and there are a couple of small rust spots on the Redfield-style base and one of the rings mounted on the .270 WIN barrel (see photos). Also, the scope ring screws should be replaced on the rings, which are mounted on the .300 WIN MAG barrel since one of the screws is missing (see photos).
The checkered walnut forearm and stock are in excellent condition with the only handling mark to mention being some very slight wear on the bottom-edge of the grip (see photos). Other than this very slight wear, the wood is in excellent condition with crisp checkering and a nice satin finish (see photos). The red rubber T/C recoil pad is also in excellent condition. L.O.P. to the front trigger is 14".
Overall this Hunter Deluxe Rifle is in excellent condition mechanically and in appearance. Serial #10959. STK. #13871.
