So I have one if the earlier model TC contender 14s. It appears to have never been shot. Still in original box it's original instructions and wipes. Really nice sights and engravings with a two barrel set.

My question is..
Is it worth anything because of its condition or should I just mount a scope on it and shooter up? I have been debating mounting a scope on it and shooting it but it really is a pretty gun with its engravings and great bluing work.

Just don't know if it worth more as a " collector piece" then a tool?

Thoughts

Any pics?

What serial # range is it?

What are the chamberings?

I have zero use, which equates to zero value, for a gun i cant shoot. Although new in the box is impressive!

Id scope it and shoot it if it were me.

I agree with the no use, no value but I have 44s and can buy a 3030 but will prob never get a set like this again.

I have actually already bought scopes and rings but have been mulling over whether to install since last year.

I posted pics before I got it but if you go to my pics page there are prob 6 good photos.

It is worth more to collectors new in the box. Sell it to a collector and buy a used one to shoot. With that being said several of mine were bought new ,but I bought them to shoot and shoot them I have for for 40 yrs.

If it is an easy open model and depending on the barrel cal I may be interested if you sell it

You could contact the Thompson/Center Association with the info: c/o Art Lamontagne, PO Box 537, Sanford, ME, or tcaogs@metrocast.net

They publish One Good Shot, which is a very high quality magazine with superb photography.
