TC used to offer a barrel for the Contender (Pistol and Carbine) in .357 Max. Not sure about the Encore.

If you are looking at a Contender or Encore in 357 Max., you may want to check out bellmtcs.com. Mike Bellm only does T/C's and is a huge proponent of the 357 Max cartridge. He makes barrels and does about any kinda 'smithing on T/C's you might need. He apprenticed with P.O. Ackley (just in case you cared )

Default handi rifle

i have had one in 357 max for about 6 years now (not for sale) and have looked for another since at all the gun shows and never seen another. they must have been a very short run. great round and fun to plink with. you may have to go with the TC. good luck.....

I have T/C Contender pistol 14" bull barrel and Dan Wesson revolver cal. .357Rem Max. I use rifle-scoped T/C-barrel with carbine stock like carbin. (some times with silencer)I think, here in Finland, never ever shall to have real rifle in this caliber.
