Default thompson center scout

I had a thompson center scout in .50 cal. given to me. The barrel is rusted and is in terrible shape, so bad that I would be afraid to shoot it, but the action and wood are great. I was wondering if it could be rebarrelled. I like the style of the action because it is so small and handy, and would like to rebarrel it to .32 or .36 caliber. Just wondering if anyone had any advice or experience with this sort of thing.

Yes it can be rebarreled. Is it worth the cost? Unlikely.
Could it be rechambered? Probably cheaper to buy a new gun.

BTW this is a typical situation. New hunters purchase a black powder rifle to extend hunting season and have no idea what they are doing and don't clean the gun properly or at all. They pull the gun out the next season and it is junk. I see it all the time.

probably true. Just hate to waste a gun with such great wood and a great action. Thanks for the info.

For the life of me, I can't remember if they made that scout in any other calb. Anyway, I would give T/C a call, to find out about replacing the 50cal barrel. They do outstanding work, and really stand behind their products, and their pricing is pretty good. If you are still looking for a smaller calb barrel for it, at this time I do not know of any outside source to get one. FYI, the T/C Scout was built to handle, carry, and for fast shooting, and was based off the Winchester 94 30/30, also they made a Scout handgun (in single shot) to go along with the rifle. Now that I think about it,,,,,,,,,,, check with the company DIXIE GUN WORKS
