* These calibers are only available for use in the modern G2 actions, not the classic Contender and will be marked accordingly. This is for your safety due to potential pressure levels in these cartridges. Call us if you have any questions.

** Custom barrels chambered in 7.62 x 39 will be built on a true .308" bore barrel. This does not allow for use of ANY remanufactured or factory-built ammunition regardless of bullet diameter used. These products are commonly made for traditional military chambers in a larger bore size or have been fired in oversized chambers and will cause damage to your firearm when used in our barrels.

‡ The 45-70 US Gov't. when used in the classic Contender or G2 actions should be limited in pressures by utilizing original Marlin Model 1895 loading data.

Standard Barrel Profiles

Bullberry Contender/G2 barrels are most often made in a straight Bull profile. The Bull profile is considered optimum for both balance and accuracy in the already lightweight Contender; these also match the modern G2 barrels from T/C. If you prefer a lighter weight barrel for any reason just specify the details when ordering. Please note, however, that Bullberry tapers start 5 inches ahead of the breech to allow ample room for scope mounting using any manufacturer's hardware. The original Contender carbine barrel's muzzle diameter can be matched on your new custom barrel upon request. Other common tapers will feature muzzle diameters of .750" to .500" (in .050" increments), though this is dependent upon the barrel's bore dimension.

Check out our new page of our Custom Barrel Profiles for scale drawings with all the particulars.


Optional Barrel Add-ons and Accessories

Muzzlebrakes, muzzle threading, sights and scope mounts are the most common additions to our custom barrels. Please visit our Accessories page for full options and pricing breakdowns on a variety of extras.


Contender® and G2® Frames

If you are new to the T/C break-actions, you may want to start with the Encore® or ProHunter™ due to frame availability. The classic Contender® has not been produced since the 1990s, though you may find used Contenders on the market (many customers have found success on GunBroker.com). The more modern G2® has not been available from our suppliers for about two and a half years, but continues to be listed as a sale item from T/C Arms (and parent company Smith & Wesson). We have no reason to anticipate the cancellation of G2 frames and accessories, and hear through the industry grapevine that they may be ready for official re-release this holiday season.

Frame purchases include the frame only. Custom woodwork, laminates and synthetics can all be purchased separately.
