Thompson Center Black Diamond XR

Recommended Posts

Well, the boys will sure be happy this Christmas! We got them each a Black Diamond XR with stainless barrel and realtree camo stocks at Cabela's. It is a great sale they are having. I also got them scopes to go with it so this spring we will have a ball outshooting eachother.

Any of you shoot this gun? How is the cleanup? What loads are you using in THIS gun? I will probably start with the same load I use in my Remington Muzzleloader, namely 2 50gr Pyrodex pellets with 240Gr Hornady XP sabot. I shoot a nice pretty cloverleaf at 100 yds. Well see about them this spring!

I have a few comments that may help someone in the future. I am pleased how easy it is to clean the Black Diamond rifle. You need no tools to dissemble the striker to access the breach plug. That is a step better than my Remington Muzzleloader. Also the stock dimensions are more better suited for a younger shooter. The length of pull is shorter.

My only complaint so far is the recoil pad fit on the realtree synthetic stock. There must be a 1/8" gap on on corner. I cannot accept that. I will have to call up Thompson Center and see if they can exchange that for me. Also the barrel free floats inside the barrel inletting in the stock. This is not bad, however, there seems to be a LOT of play at the end of the stock with the barrel. I will ask about that.

We just need to shoot them and see how accurate they are!

    • not unless you can find an old lakemaster garmin compatible chip and if your garmin can indeed read it; otherwise you can get garmin's version
    • Freekying yeaa!  😃 About time. 3 3/4 of a game without as much as a field goal with two of the best receivers in the NFL would say this is a good move! 🤨
    • I actually have the opposite  Problem of keeping the ice solid. After about two weeks of fishing the same spot, The front tip-up is floating on water.  I now bank the back 3/4 of the house only To regulate the trapped air underneath.             
    • Does anyone know if you can put a Lakemaster chip in a dash mount GPS. I have a Garmin dash mount and it would be nice and handy if I could do that.   Thanks
    • Vikings Fire Offensive Coordinator John DeFilippo December 11, 2018 at 11:16 am   MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Minnesota Vikings’ offense struggled against the Seattle Seahawks on prime time television Monday evening – and it looks to be enough to cost the offensive coordinator his job.   On Tuesday, the team confirmed they have relieved John DeFilippo of his duties as offensive coordinator.   Kevin Strefanski has been elevated to interim offensive coordinator and will handle play-calling duties, the team said. The Vikings lost to the Seahawks 7-21 Monday evening, and were nearly shut out. The Vikings scored their only touchdown with 1:10 remaining in the game.  
    • oh the ice is good.....on the 2 lakes i hit. one had 10 inches the other 12!!!!!!!!
    • I just started her up and let her run a bit yesterday.  Wouldn't get out fishing until all the Holiday stuff is over in a few weeks but then the ice should be good and more snow hopefully.  Thanks for the reply over yonder! 🙂
    • What type of solution?    Not it directed at you personally but I find it amusing that by and larger hunters and fishermen are the most anti government anti regulation types yet are the first to overharvest due to lack of self control and then are the first to Beyotch when the DNR doesn’t stop it.     
    • WELL i was just up in  that country over the weekend. maybe 3-4 inches in the woods might be 2 inches of snow on the lakes!!!!!!
