You may find that recoil makes the grip tear at your skin. I have a 14 inch 223 barrel for mine and have had a 44 mag barrel at one time and the recoil from the TC can get rather big and hurt. While they are not very elegant the Pachmayer rubber pistol grips are most certainly the most comfortable to shoot. The worst case of shoulder bruising I ever got from a gun, and I have some pretty big guns, was the TC configured as a rifle in 30/30. The light weight of the gun just did my shoulder in.

Thanks LDBennett,

I'll only be shooting this gun in .22LR, so recoil will not be an issue. Thanks for the centerfire recoil information though, it's good to know these things.

The photo says it all

While I can't speak about those fine carved stock parts, I will point out that the photos are of an "easy open" frame. The way one can tell is by the pivot pin that goes through the trigger. Older versions don't have a trigger pin, what they have is another pin that is covered by the fore stock, just under the main barrel pin/bolt? Moving the cocking/pivot pin closer to the rear of the frame made them easy to open, and so they became the easy open frames....

Anyway, when you looking to buy another frame, and you will, (Contenders are addictive), look for that pin just above the trigger. I also, had an older version that I had T/C convert to an “easy open” model, however, when they sent it back there was no trigger over travel screw…… Needless I complained to T/C about this and they told me that” they don’t do that anymore.” However, I send it back a second time, and had to wait two or three months, but they finally put in the over travel screw.

My preference in a carbine is the G2, because I like the monte carlo stock better.
