Forend Solutions For Bergara TC4700 45-70 Govt Barrels

The FULL contour diameter of Bergaras TC4700 45-70 GOVT barrel has created some creative opportunities as to which forend to use. Bergara makes a great line of interchangeable Encore/Prohunter barrels in many calibers BUT standard Encore/Prohunter rifle forends DO NOT fit, they are just a shade to the small side. Syn thetic rifle forends can be modified but will require a certain level of skill to accomplish and then that forend may not be reusable on your other rifle barrels. The easiest solution is to use your muzzleloader forend if you have one. I know the mounting screws are different but simply remove the forend bushings from below your muzzleloader barrel and reinstall them below your rifle barrel and install the forend, it fits perfectly. Note, care must be taken not to strip those tiny screws that hold the bushings on and I recommend using a hollow ground screwdriver sized correctly. Another solution utilizing a shotgun forend is still under investigation and requires using longer rifle forend screws and washers to install your shotgun forend to the rifle barrel. I also believe these solutions will apply to the laminate stocksets that I sell. More later....... Until then be safe and shoot straight. Marty

Haus of Arms Newsletter- 1st Edition

 Well this is it, the first edition of the HausofArms newsletter. I concentrate so much on inventory control, e-listings, customer service and generally being "that guy" (the guy that answers the phone and helps people) as my son calls me, that I have fallen short in the development of my social media skills. So here we go! 

My goal here is as follows: 
1) Communicate Thompson Center news as I learn it from my connections there. 
2) Give tips to my newsletter subscribers that will help them help other TC enthusiasts. 
3) Keep that group up to date on the latest happenings at HausofArms.com


If you have purchased a Weathershield barrel in either centerfire or muzzleloader variety and notice rust forming on the breech block, contact TC customer service at 1-866-730-1614, they will send you a return ship label and make it right. Apparently quality control has missed the bluing process on the breech blocks on some barrels and they rust badly. Don't ask me why with such a uniquely impressive product as Weathershield, there is that little part that is still blue. Here is an example in a bad case:

Haus of Arms NEW PRODUCTS: 

I am now able to purchase Bergara barrels directly from Bergara. I stock nearly all available models of centerfire and muzzleloader barrels. Although I have owned and shot both Bergara and TC barrels, I can't say one is better than the other although some insist Bergara is better. Probably like Ford and Chevy owners.  

As always feel free to contact me through this site, email at [email protected] or by phone at 636-359-0104. Marty
