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 help 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 Realtree® AP™ Camo 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.
