In 1965, K. W. Thompson Tool was looking for a product to build and a gun designer, Warren Center, was looking for someone to build his Contender® pistol. It was a perfect match.
Over the past 53 years, we have contributed heavily to the growth of shooting and hunting sports in America. As a result, we’ve elevated handgun and muzzleloader hunting to new heights. Thompson/Center continues to lead the industry through the development of innovative, quality products for sport shooters and hunters worldwide.
