Thompson / Center Arms known for their single shot pistols and rifles launched two new Icon bolt action rifles, the Classic and Weather Shield.
The beautiful high grade walnut, the intricate checkering and ribbon detail, the integral WeaverÂ® style scope mounts, the stylized interchangeable bolt handle, the sleek feel and superb balance all add up to one beautiful gun, but that’s not all.
There are so many technical, mechanical and performance-enhancing features on T/C’s new Iconâ„¢ that it can’t really be compared to other bolt actions. From the revolutionary Interlok Bedding Systemâ„¢ to the innovative T-Slot Extractorâ„¢, the Iconâ„¢ is the ultimate in accuracy, precision and reliability. The Icon comes chambered in popular calibers (22-250, 243, 308, and the new 30 TC).
The Icons rifles are factory certified to achieve at least 1 MOA accuracy.
It is good for consumers that TC Arms are increasing their line up of bolt rifles. TC is owned by S&W who have a very limited offering. Only two models of the i-bolt rifle chambered in only two cartridges, the .270 and .30-06. With Remington, Marlin, H&R and Bushmaster now all owned by the same entity, Cerberus, the more competition the better.
