Do you have the Encore ProHunter, or FX ProHunter? Let's not confuse the two, because they are very different. The Encore PH can accept other barrels. The TC PH FX can not. I went back and re-read the thread and it made it seem like the ProHunter wouldn't accept other barrels....is why I ask....and I wanted to point that out.
Nice buck!!! And I agree with what you state in its MTN Rifle capabilities to an extent.
