    Weight of Contender Carbine

    Does anybody have a T/C Contender carbine and a scale that would weigh the gun please? If so, please also tell me the chambering and barrel length.

    Thank you.

    Yes. The stock needs some finish work, so that's bare composite and some goo to fill the voids where the action mates.
