    .22 Hornet G2 Contender

    Up for sale (regrettably!) is my newly completed Thompson Center G2 in .22 Hornet. It's fired a grand total of 18 round since it was built, earlier in the year. Boyds laminate stock, new rail, new Burris steel rings, new Leupold VX2 3-9x40, that I will still have the receipt for although I can't find the box, I don't think I've thrown it out, but am known for doing retarded things on a regular basis.
    Barrel is .223 so can fire either .223 or .224 Hornet projectiles. I imported the stock myself and had a local gunsmith fit a JW-15 barrel to it, then chamber in .22 Hornet. Very pretty little rifle, but unfortunately, due to a lack of work, rushes of shit to the head, and the silly season, I need the cash! FML. Two full packs of ammo, plus the part one pictured. New and unused die set and shell holder - RCBS. Open to offers that aren't a butt-hurt. If it does'nt sell I'm happy to keep it, missus doesn't need an Xmas present anyway.Attachment 79467Attachment 79468 Asking $1650 ono

    Did he use the barrel-stub method to rebarrel it? ie use a hollowed out barrel stub and hinge block from an existing tc barrel?

    Dave Ward, based in Nelson. He's done a few, as he has a jig all made up for these.

    Still available, hasn't been out of the cupboard, great little rifle. Would consider a swap for scope of similar value. Cheers!
