This .50 caliber New Englander rifle is offered in used condition with a well maintained bore. The rugged Rynite stock will give years, if not decades of service. The stock has a few light scratches on it from field use. This Thompson Center New Englander is late production, with the factory fitted black rubber recoil pad. Trigger reach is 13-5/8" to fit todays average size shooter. It weighs 7.0 pounds.

This Thompson Center New Englander rifle has a 24" tapered round barrel that is finished to a bright blue. The bore is bright and has been well maintained. The barrel is rifled with a 1 in 48" twist for a patched round ball, or a T/C Maxi ball. The barrel is fitted with Thompson Center's blued bead front sight. The factory Thompson Center rear sight is click adjustable for windage and elevation. This particular rifle has Thompson Center's QLA (Quick Load Accurizer) feature. The QLA is a relief of the rifling, the first inch of the barrel has no rifling, allowing loads to be easily started and quickly loaded.

The hooked breech 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.

The black Rynite stock is in excellent condition, with only a few very minor handling marks. The trigger guard is wide to accept a gloved finger. The rubber recoil pad is stamped with the TC logo. The factory ramrod is fitted with a blued steel tip threaded to accept 10-32 cleaning and loading accessories.

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