We have been able to continue to offer 2018 pricing on factory barrels for the last several months because we were able to lock in our 2018 prices for the first several orders of 2019.
March Newsletter From HausOfArms
50th Anniversary G2 Contenders
We are steadily receiving shipments of the 50th Anniversary G2 Contenders, and we have already shipped two dozen to happy customers. We expect to receive our next shipment in April.
350 Legend Barrels From Match Grade Machine
We are expecting our first shipment of 350 Legend Barrels for all platforms by the end of March. We still have a few pre-sale barrels left, but we don’t expect them to last. If you are considering a 350 Legend barrel, we would suggest ordering asap.
350 Legend Scopes And Ammo
Leupold plans to release 350 Legend Scopes by early summer. These will be CDS scopes specifically designed for the 350 Legend. We plan to stock a few of these scopes. (We also plan to stock them for the 450 Bushmaster).
We hope to stock Winchester’s 350 Legend Ammo as soon as it’s available.
HausOfArms Soft Pistol Cases
We have a few of our HausOfArms pistol cases left, and we plan to order more. These cases come in 24 and 27 inch options, and they will fit a scoped pistol in all platforms.
16.5” Threaded 6.5 Creedmoor Dimension Barrels By Bellm
As always, we strive to offer new custom items on a regular basis. We sent a few of our 6.5 Creedmoor Dimension barrels to Mike Bellm to have them cut down and threaded. Mike cut them down to 16.5” and added a 5/8-24 thread with a cap. These barrels are a perfect fit for a small blind!
T/C Shooters Challenge
Our friend, John Tasker, runs the T/C Shooters Facebook group. He has started a monthly shooting challenge, and there will be prizes for the winners! Check it out!
A Note From Marty
Many of you are already aware of the blatant attack on our 1A and 2A rights by Facebook. They have recently shut down multiple T/C enthusiast groups with zero recourse. While we plan to continue to use the HausOfArms Facebook page for as long as possible, we are also encouraging our followers to join us on MeWe. MeWe is a 2A friendly site, and we are asking everyone to join in case our Facebook page is shut down.
February Newsletter From HausOfArms
Introducing The 350 Legend By Match Grade Machine
At SHOT Show, Winchester introduced their newest ammo: 350 Legend. There has been a lot of buzz and excitement about the possibilities that the 350 Legend can offer. Dylan from Match Grade Machine came home from SHOT Show and got to work designing a 350 Legend barrel for both the Encore and Contender. We are offering them as a pre-sale item right now, and we should have them by the end of March. We are offering them for the Encore and Contender in both blued and stainless. They will be 20” long, threaded with a cap, and 1:16 twist.
The 350 Legend WILL NEVER Replace the 357 Rem Max
As many of you know, the HausOfArms Crew LOVES the 357 Rem Max. We all own one, and we all love them for different reasons: lack of recoil, versatility, accuracy...we could go on all day about the 357 Rem Max. Here’s the deal, the 357 Rem Max isn’t an accessible barrel for everyone because not everyone reloads and not everyone can afford to buy reloads, but the 357 Rem Max has a loyal following and will ALWAYS have a loyal following. This is where the 350 Legend comes in. It has many of the same qualities as the 357 Rem Max, AND the price point and accessibility of the ammunition makes it accessible to ALL.
What Match Grade Machine Says About The 350 Legend
The 350 Legend is perfect for the states that are restricted to 1.8" straight wall case for hunting. Winchester had youth, women, and those of us that are recoil sensitive in mind during development. This case is designed to compete with cartridges like the 450 Bushmaster and the 460 S&W, but without the recoil. New case features include an overall length of 1.71", a slightly rebated rim that is the same diameter as the 223 Remington, multiple SKU’s of factory loaded ammunition, plus the benefit of reloadability with a plentiful supply of 35 caliber bullets. This blazing round will have great muzzle velocity combined with proper hunting bullets that will allow you to reach out to 300 yards and beyond with confidence. There’s no doubt that the 350 Legend will be a great addition to your Encore or Contender barrel collection. See it in action: https://winchester.com/350-Legend#video

MeWe: A Gun Friendly Social Media Platform
While we intend to continue to utilize the HausOfArms Facebook Page, we are well aware that many similar pages and groups are being deleted without reason or recourse. You may have noticed that the All T/C Contenders All The Time and the T/C Addiction groups have been deleted. Facebook permanently deleted these groups because they made someone feel “unsafe”. We are choosing to be proactive, and we are asking our followers to join us on MeWe. You can find our page here: https://mewe.com/p/hausofarms. While you are at it, please be sure to join Justin VanDee’s new group on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/395097161056641/.
As of right now, we haven’t received anymore of the 50th Anniversary Contenders, but we expect to start receiving regular weekly shipments of them! The first one that we received went to a legend in the T/C community. Bob Bryarly has been a champion and advocate for Thompson Center for decades, and we were honored to be able to fulfill his order.
Our first shipment of 2019 T/C Catalogs arrived this week! We will be adding one to every HausOfArms order that goes out the door while supplies last. We can’t wait to hear what everyone thinks about them.
Shoot Straight and Be Safe,
Marty and The HausOfArms Crew
