Thompson Encore Pistol Capacity

The Thompson Encore Pistol is chambered in just about every popular hunting caliber on the market from .22LR to .223 Remington to .30-06 and beyond.  You can even find barrels in .410 bore to use shotgun shells.  This break-action pistol has a capacity of 1 round, and is loaded by pulling the trigger guard to open the action.

Measuring 15.5 inches long with a 12 inch barrel with an unloaded weight of 3.5 pounds, the Encore pistol offers full-power firepower in a small and lightweight platform that is easily carried over long durations.  It can also be tucked away into a hiking pack for emergency use when trekking through the woods with friends of varying opinions.  This packing ability also makes it very easy to carry with you through the woods on your way to a deer stand.

Thompson Encore Pistol Ergonomics

The Encore is available with a variety of target-style grips that offer different holds.  Some allow for easier bench shooting with the use of sandbags or bipods through a more vertical pistol grip while others are more geared for one-handed shooting with sharper grip angles, grip texturing and varying materials.

Thompson Encore Pistol Fit & Finish

Due to the accuracy of this platform, the Encore pistol has been adapted for many different uses from hunting to target shooting and more.  This is due to the ease of headspacing with the simple design.  The Encore is built on a hardened steel frame that features a deep blued finish and barrels are typically cut with a chrome-lined chamber.
