Assembly Disassembly Of Your TC Scout Muzzleloader

Both the T/C Scout Carbine and Pistol have five (5) basic parts groups:

1. The Frame - identical on both the Carbine and Pistol except for the location of the rear sight.

2. The Barrel Assembly - except for the length of the barrels, the barrel assembly on both the T/C Scout Carbine and Pistol are both held rigidly to the frame and trigger group assembly by a 3/16" hex screw.

3. The Forend - the carbine forend is held to the barrel by a barrel band; the pistol forend is held to the barrel by a single screw into the dovetailed nut on the bottom of the pistol barrel.

4. The Stock & Trigger Assembly - both patented trigger assemblies differ slightly in order to accommodate the shape of the stock or grip. (Carbine with straight grip, Pistol with curved grip).

5. The Ramrod - the carbine has its ramrod in thimbles under the barrel, while the pistol has a separate ramrod that is carried independent of the firearm. The pistol ramrod also includes a ball starter.

T/C SCOUT CARBINE TAKEDOWN PROCEDURE

1st Step - After making sure that the gun is unloaded and unprimed, remove the ramrod from the gun and use a screwdriver to remove the barrel band screw. Slide the barrel band forward and move it forward over the forend. Pull the forend forward (toward the muzzle) about one-half inch before pulling it down and away from the rest of the gun.

2nd Step - Using a 3/16" hex wrench, remove the cap screw from the lug at front/bottom of the frame. After removing this cap screw, the barrel can now be slid out of the frame.

3rd Step - The cap screw that was removed in Step 2 also held the frame to the trigger assembly. Now that it has been removed, you can lift the frame off the trigger assembly by sliding it approximately one-half an inch away from the trigger assembly and tipping it up and out of position as indicated by the arrows shown in the exploded view on page 11 of this booklet.

Further disassembly is not recommended. To reassemble, reverse procedure, making sure that you check the functioning of the trigger mechanism prior to loading and firing.

T/C SCOUT PISTOL TAKEDOWN PROCEDURE

1st Step - After making sure that the firearm is unloaded and unprimed, use a screwdriver to remove the one forend screw from the bottom of the forend. Pull the forend down and away from the barrel.

2nd Step - Using a 3/16" hex wrench, remove the cap screw from the bottom/front of the frame. After removing this cap screw, slide the barrel out of the frame.

3rd Step - The cap screw removed in Step 2 also served to hold the frame to the trigger assembly. Now that the cap screw has been removed, you can lift the frame off the trigger guard assembly by sliding it approximately one-half an inch away from the trigger assembly and tipping it up and out of position as indicated by the arrows shown on the exploded view on page 11 of this booklet.

Further disassembly is not recommended. To reassemble, reverse procedure, making sure that you check the functioning of the trigger mechanism prior to loading and firing.

You will note that the T/C Scout Carbine & Pistol have a breech plug (Patent #4,888,901) which is vented. These vents are angled forward, away from the shooter. These vents serve as an outlet for gases that develop upon ignition and combustion of the powder charge. The venting of these gases contributes to consistent pressures associated with this technology. What this means to the shooter is more uniform pressures and velocities from shot to shot, thereby increasing overall accuracy and performance.

CAUTION: When using the T/C Scout Carbine or Pistol, be certain that you keep yourself and bystanders clear of these ports as hot gases will be expelled upon firing and injury may result.

Gases Are Vented Out and Away From The Shooter on Both Sides of the Frame
