Thompson/Center has made a habit of pushing interchangeable firearms platforms in recent years, and now they're making the idea more appealing than even with the reintroduction of the G2 Contender—which hunters will be able to purchase in either rifle or pistol form.

Each new G2 Contender will be able to transition from a big-game ready rifle to a plinker, with little trouble. The rifle will ship in .30-30 Win., while the pistol system will be available in .22LR and .357 Mag. Consumers will be able to customize their gun as required. Seven caliber changes will be available for the rifle, ranging from .17 HMR up to the default .30-30 Win. The pistol system will have 11 additional options, from .17 HMR to .45 Colt/410 Bore.

"The versatility of the G2 Contender has always been at the heart of its popularity and we have definitely preserved that for hunters and shooters who depend on these rifle and pistol platforms in a host of different hunting situations," said Thompson/Center Brand Manager Danielle Sanville. "But what the G2 Contender complete rifle and complete pistol systems do is make it easier for hunters and shooters who prefer something chambered in a proven, all-around caliber that is ready to go right out of the box while also having the option of further customization down the road."

All components of the new G2 Contender Complete Rifle and Complete Pistol will maintain their compatibility with previous G2 Contender models.
