HISTORY OF THOMPSON CENTER FIREARMS. Thompson Center Arms was the brain child of Warren Center, a firearms engineer who was employed by Harrington & Richardson Arms Company (1871 to 1986) who history goes back to Frank Wesson, brother of Daniel B. Wesson who co-founded Smith & Wesson. Frank Wesson started a firearms manufacturing firm in 1859, sharing an early patent with Nathan Harrington. He started a brief partnership in 1871 with his nephew Gilbert Henderson Harrington, as Wesson & Harrington, until Harrington bought him out in 1874. In 1875 Harrington and another former Wesson employee, William Augustus Richardson, formed the new Harrington & Richardson Company. In 1888 the firm was incorporated as The Harrington & Richardson Arms Company. Warren Center then joined the K. Thompson Tool Company in 1965, and together, they announced Warren Center’s Contender pistol in 1967. In his basement at home, he designed an unusual single shot break action handgun with interchangeable barrels which is known today as the Contender handgun. Thompson Tool began marketing Center’s Contender pistol, the company name was changed to Thompson/Center Arms Company. This increasingly popular pistol was quickly accepted among silhouette shooters as well as the handgun hunting fraternity. Thompson Tool Company was located in Rochester, NH and decided to change their name to Thompson / Center Arms Company shortly after they began marketing their Contender handgun. Three years later in 1970, Thompson / Center Arms created the modern black powder industry, introducing Warren Center’s Hawken-styled black powder muzzle-loader rifle which was the first of an ever growing line of muzzle loading firearms. In 1996, a major fire broke out in the factory destroying all tooling and parts for three of their muzzle loading firearms lines: the Seneca rifle, the Patriot pistol, and the Scout which was one of their newer in line muzzle loaders. As a result, they were discontinued in 1997. Today, Thompson Center Arms produces a variety of quality rifles, handguns and muzzle loaders for the hunter and competitive shooter. The memory of of Warren Center’s great contribution to the development of the single shot platform lives on through The Thompson/Center Association which was formed in 1986 by a group of dedicated collectors at the behest of Thompson/Center Arms factory officials. Their goal for more than 30 years has been to document and categorize the many products of the Thompson/Center Arms Company as well as to promote the use and collecting of said items. As a group, they track and maintain records of various items that have surfaced throughout the years such as flat side and Eagle etched Contender frames as well as many of the hard to find octagonal barrel offerings. The Los Angeles Cowboy is a proud member of the Thompson/Center Association. PLEASE NOTE THAT I HAVE NO IDEA HOW MANY ROUNDS WERE FIRED THROUGH ANY OF MY BARRELS.
