This .50 caliber Thompson Center Express rifle is offered in used condition. Thompson Center made a limited run of these rifles in the mid 1990's. This factory finished rifle is stocked in American black walnut, and has been cut checkered after it left the factory. The rifle is fitted with a factory rubber recoil pad with TC logo. The rifle features a 30" straight octagon barrel with 1:38 twist. The bore is bright and has been well maintained. Weight is 7.6 pounds, and with a trigger reach of 13-3/4", the rifle is perfectly setup for today's average sized shooter.

The factory polished blued barrel is .50 caliber, 15/16" octagon, 30" length with a 1:38 twist. The barrel is marked with all of the factory warnings and information, along with EXPRESS. The front sight is a ramped base with white bead post. The factory express leaf sights have been removed and the mounting screws are used to fill the holes. A homemade peep sight with shim is screwed into the short tang. In excellent condition, the bore is bright and clean, with crisp rifling grooves. The bluing has a few light scratches and brown speckling in the finish from use. This rifle pre-dates the QLA muzzle and the bore is rifled all the way to the end of the muzzle.

The American black walnut stock is stained to a dark brown. The stock has many handling marks and scratches from use. The pistol grip stock has been cut checkered, along with the forearm, after it left the factory. The barrel channel has glass bedding. A rubber recoil pad with TC logo is fitted to help absorb the recoil from the .50 caliber bore. The nosecap and triggerguard are blued steel, and the bow is wide to accept a gloved finger. A wooden replacement ramrod is fitted with a brass tip threaded 10-32 to accept loading and cleaning accessories. The ramrod is retained by two round blued pipes. A homemade brass stud for a sling swivel is mounted behind the rear ramrod pipe through the barrel's rib. A rear stud is mounted in the toe of the buttstock, no sling is included. The single lock bolt has a round blued steel washer-style side plate. No cheek piece is carved on this rifle.

Our top view shows the hooked breech, which allows the barrel to be easily dismounted for cleaning without risk of wetting the stock with water containing black powder residue. To dismount the barrel, put the lock on half cock, withdraw the ramrod, drift the key past the underlug, and the barrel can be lifted from the barrel channel for ease of cleaning. Remove the nipple and place the breech end of the barrel in a bucket of soapy water. Run a wet patch down and up the bore, the pumping action will flush all the fouling from the barrel. Once the bore is clean, run a dry patch down the bore to pick up any moisture followed by a oily patch. Dry and oil the exterior then reassemble the rifle.

Our lock view shows the color case hardened percussion lock, factory engraved by Thompson Center. This lock works smoothly, with a strong mainspring. The barrel is fitted with a 1/4-28 stainless steel nipple. The single trigger provides a smooth release of the lock.

Used, this rifle has some handling marks, but is in overall good condition with a bright well maintained bore. It will serve you well in the woods this Fall or at the range!
