Our Assessment: From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thompson/Center_Contender "Warren Center, working in his basement shop in the 1960s, developed a unique, break-action, single-shot pistol. In 1965, Center joined the K.W. Thompson Tool Company and they introduced this design as the Thompson-Center Contender in 1967. Although they cost more than some hunting revolvers, the flexibility of being able to shoot multiple calibers by simply changing the barrel and sights and its higher accuracy made it popular with handgun hunters.[1] As K.W. Thompson Tool began marketing Center's Contender pistol, the company name was changed to Thompson/Center Arms Company.[2] Originally the chamberings were on the low end of the recoil spectrum such as .22 LR, .22 WMR, .22 Hornet, .38 Special, and .22 Remington Jet, but as Magnum calibers took off in the 1970s, the Contender quickly became very popular with shooting enthusiasts.[2]" With the .223 Remington and .44 Magnum barrel (which also takes .44 Special) sets, you can tackle any chore from distant target shooting and taking medium game with the larger caliber! What a cool system, everyone should have a single shot pistol in their collection's common calibers. If you live in California and are upset about all the items you can no longer own for no reason whatsoever, try out a single shot exempt item! Please see our pictures and good luck.
