I have a T/C Contender frame with RH walnut grip with thumbrest. The frame is in good condition and good working order showing signs of normal wear/use around the hinge pin under the ears of the foregrip and the edges of trigger guard. The frame was made in 1977 with serial number 784xx. If you are interested and have any question or need additional photos please contact me. Thank you for looking.

I am not sure what you are referring to as "newer" barrels? If you mean the G2 series, I do believe they will work on this frame. The G2 and its predecessor, the Contender are basically the same frame, now any barrels that are for the T/C Encore WILL NOT work on the Contender or G2 frames. Hope this helps.

Thompson changed up the Original Contender after a couple of years. The older Contender frames won't function with the later model Contender barrels. You can send the frame back to Thompson and have them "fixed" so they'll work with the newer barrels. I have two of the original Contenders but have not sent them back for "fixing".

When t/c started to upgrade the old frames to work with the newer barrels, There was a no charge for the service, They now charge for this to be done. I had my old frame's done in the 70"s. When you put the newer barrels on the old frame, The only way you could get the barrel off the frame was to remove the take down pin.

That is still the only way to remove any T/C barrel, whether it be an older Contender, newer Contender, G2 or the Encore.

That one should accept any contender barrels, the old style had a safety block in the hammer
