G2 Contender® Stainless Steel Barrel
With simple barrel interchangeability, time-proven long range accuracy and adaptability between rimfire and centerfire, the versatility of the G2 Contender® is unmatched by any other interchangeable platform in the world. The second-generation G2 Contender® is even more user-friendly in the field than Thompson/Center’s original Contender®. In addition to the 40 barrel choices to match the accuracy and caliber range of any hunt, the G2’s grip, frame and forend have been profiled and sculpted for a modern, streamlined appearance.
Barrels for the G2 Contender® can be changed in only minutes by removing the forend and tapping out the barrel/frame hinge pin. G2 Contender® barrels are backwards compatible to SN195000; blued and stainless barrels are interchangeable.
Forends: rifle, shotgun and muzzleloader barrels use different forends.

G2 Contender® Compatibility with Old-Style Contenders® – The G2 Contender® frame will accept all Contender® barrels and their corresponding forends (except Herrett forend). The G2 frame will not accept old-style grips because of the change in grip angle. Blued or stainless barrels are readily interchangeable.
