Thompson/Center, a Smith and Wesson Company, introduced three new officially licensed BSA® rifles including a limited edition BSA® 100th Anniversary G2 Contender muzzleloader, a BSA® IMPACT muzzleloader, and a BSA® Hotshot .22 rifle for youth shooters. All models are perfect for use at the range, in the woods or as collector items. Each model carries the Boy Scouts of America® logo on the frame or is embossed with the official 100th Anniversary logo in the stock. As with all Thompson/Center firearms, these BSA® versions have a lifetime warranty and are made in the USA.
The limited edition .50 caliber G2 Contender Muzzleloader features traditional walnut stock embedded with a BSA® 100th Anniversary coin and a 24 karat gold plate engraved with the BSA® 100th Anniversary logo on the receiver.
For the youth and novice shooters, the BSA® IMPACT Muzzleloader is designed for durability and operational simplicity. The black composite stock is embedded with a medallion featuring the Boy Scouts of America Universal Emblem.
For youth, first time shooters, the Thompson/Center’s BSA® HotShot .22 rifle is lightweight, accurate, and simple to use with its single-shot design and hammer block trigger. The commemorative Hotshot will feature a brown composite stock along with the BSA® Fleur-de-lis etched on the receiver. The BSA® Hotshot will be available this August through Academy Sports.
