Thompson/Center Triumph® Bone Collector® .50 Caliber Magnum Muzzleloaders
Top of the line
Ordered this muzzle loader after reading all kinds of reviews and I am not disappointed at all. It was dead on right out of the box and after I mounted the scope and sighted it in, I was able to group shots within a 2 inch diameter at 100 yards. Clean up is easy and the quick release feature is great. I killed a 6 pointer the first time out with it and I can't be happier.

T/C Triumph B/C .50cal
Outstanding rifle from end to end. I have firearm experience but this is the first time ever shooting, handling and now owning a BlackPowder rifle. I read lots, lots of reviews and viewed youtube videos of this rifle before choosing it. It's extremely easy to use from shooting to cleaning. Lighter than I thought and it's accuracy is incredible. I put a Leupold Ultimate Slam 3x9 on top and selected Hornady H/S - L/D Sabots 300grs pushed by 3 Winchester Triple Seven's. . It took only 5 rounds to sight in @ 100yrds (first 4 @ 25yrds with a tight, tight group.)....I'm completely satisfied with this rife.

Recently purchased this gun mainly for looks and to add to my T/C collection. I sighted this rifle in (NIKON nikoplex scope) with a bore site to get things going as its very difficult here in NJ to find a public range these days (especially state owned)...In anycase, i finally made it to a range where i was shooting 250 grain sabots with 150 g pellets...After about a dozen shots i was ready to get rid of the gun and go back to my trusty encore as i was all over the place...(By the way i did clean the bore after each shot)...Out of curiosity i switched to 240 grain xtp magnums while still using 150 g pellets and i was shooting balls off a fly at 100yrds consistently! I willl be keeping this rifle and cant wait to get it in the woods!! Weird though that the 240 grain rounds made that much of a difference!

New Favorite Gun!!!
recently purchased the TC Triumph Bone Collector and all I can say is WOW...this gun is an absolute dream to shoot...light, accurate, and with the speed breech xt it's a breeze to clean...have a Nikon Inline XR with BDC 300 mounted with TC Maxima quick release rings and a TC Maxima scope base and I don't think there's a better combo out there...all my other guns are going to be coat racks from now on cause this thing will be coming on every hunt possible...shooting the new Hornady 300 grain FPB seated on 120 grains of Blackhorn 209 powder with CCI standard primers and its deadly out to 200 yards plus...recoil is soft thanks to the burners...do yourself a favor and buy this gun...I promise you, you will love everything about it!!!
