Thompson/Center Arms Begins Shipping Triumph Bone Collector Muzzleloaders
ROCHESTER, N.H. – -(AmmoLand.com)- Thompson/Center Arms Company Inc., a Smith & Wesson company, announced that it has begun shipping the new Triumph® Bone Collector™ Series of muzzleloaders. The series consists of two top-of-the-line .50 caliber magnum muzzleloaders that carry the look, feel and attitude of Michael Waddell’s “The Bone Collector” series currently airing on The Outdoor Channel.
“The arrival of the Bone Collector muzzleloader is perfectly timed for retailers to take full advantage of the buying season,” comments Tom Kelly, Vice President of Marketing for Smith & Wesson and Thompson/Center Arms. “We are supporting this exciting launch with a robust print and cable television campaign that features endorsements by Michael Waddell. The engineers at Thompson/Center worked closely with Michael to develop a muzzleloader that meets his standards in the areas of quality, accuracy and reliability. Based on feedback from Michael and our other customers, we feel confident that we have truly hit the mark with this new series.”
Built on one of Thompson/Center Arms’ most popular platforms, the Triumph Bone Collector Series has a distinctive look and feel and is available with a composite stock in dark gray or in Realtree® AP® camo finish. Both models feature a FlexTech® stock and are equipped with four Energy Burners™ placed at precise locations to allow the stock to slightly compress during recoil. This design is easy on the shoulder and reduces felt recoil by 43 percent.
The new Triumph Bone Collector Series features Thompson/Center Arms’ patented Power Rod®, a solid aluminum ramrod with pivoting handle, plus the patent-pending Speed Breech® XT breech plug, which can be removed by hand for quick cleaning or unloading. The rifle is complete with black traction grip panels on the forend and black Weather Shield® receivers and barrels to lock out corrosive elements along with a distinctive Bone Collector logo on the grip cap. The Triumph Bone Collector muzzleloader features a 28” fluted barrel with the QLA® muzzle system to aid in accuracy and loading. Each barrel also features adjustable Fiber Optic sights and is drilled and tapped for scope mounts.
The Triumph Bone Collector muzzleloader has a retail price of $550 and $650, depending on model. For more information on Triumph Bone Collectors, or to view the complete line of Thompson/Center Arms firearms and accessories, visit www.tcarms.com .
