With the great looks, quality and accuracy of the ever popular Encore Pro Hunter™, the new fixed-barrel muzzleloader combines the advanced features of the Pro Hunter rifle with Thompson Center’s solid reputation for durability and performance in the field. Unlike other muzzleloaders in its line, the Pro Hunter FX comes standard with a fixed .50 caliber barrel that is not interchangeable. Instead, the muzzleloader sports a 26-inch fluted barrel with patented QLA® (Quick Load Accurizer) for enhanced accuracy.
Other notable features include the muzzleloader’s improved handling and recoil reduction system made possible by the FlexTech™ stock and forend. Inside the FlexTech stock, four Energy Burners™, along with the recoil pad, allowing the stock to compress slightly when fired, helping to reduce felt recoil by forty-two percent. Additionally the Pro Hunter FX muzzleloader includes the Speed Breech® 3, the latest in hand-removable, threaded breech plug technology. Unlike competitors' threaded breech plugs, the Speed Breech® 3's triple lead thread design gives it more area between the threads that helps prevent breech plug seizing from powder corrosion. The triple lead thread design equates to easier removal with fewer turns than conventional plugs. Removal and cleaning just got easier with Thompson Center's new Speed Breech 3.
The ProHunter FX™ muzzleloader is drilled and tapped for scope mounts. It comes standard with Williams™ fiber optic sights, along with a Swing Hammer® that can be conveniently positioned toward either side of the frame, enabling easier access to the hammer under mounted scopes. Weighing in at just 7 pounds, the Pro Hunter FX measures 42.5 inches in length and features a 14-inch length of pull. This FX muzzleloader features a durable black composite stock.
To protect the muzzleloader against inclement weather, Thompson Center has added its tough-as-nails finish, Weather Shield®. When applied to the barrel, receiver and other rifle critical parts, the Weather Shield coating adds an extra level of protection against corrosion, while extending the durability and life of the muzzleloader.
Four Basic Firearms Safety Rules:
1) Handle all firearms as if they were loaded!
Never forget that a guns has the potential to produce serious injury or death in a single instant of carelessness. Make safe gun handling a habit to be followed at all times. After you determine that a gun is unloaded, continue to handle it as though it were loaded.
2) Always keep your firearm pointed in a safe direction!
In selecting a safe direction, you must also take into consideration that a bullet can ricochet or glance off any object it strikes, and that bullets can penetrate walls, ceilings, floors, and windows.
3) Keep your finger out of the gun’s trigger guard and off the trigger until you have aligned the gun’s sights on a safe target and you have made the decision to fire!
By keeping your finger completely outside the trigger guard until you have aimed at the target, you guarantee that any shots you fire will go safely in the direction of you intended target.
4) Always be certain that your target and the surrounding area are safe before firing!
Remember that a bullet can travel as much as several miles, so you should be certain of what your bullet could strike before you pull the trigger. Never fire at a movement, a noise, a flash of color, or a rustling bush without positively identifying your target.
