The TCR22, First impressions, Good, Bad, and Does it Cycle?

The TCR22, First impressions, Good, Bad, and Does it Cycle?

I picked this up over a year ago and its time to see if it really was a great deal…or a piece of junk. So far, i’ll say…it appears to be a great, light weight option with extras and versatility! Steel plates and squirrels do not stand a chance. I think I will be happy with this Thompson Center TCR22 at the range and in the woods!

What is the best 22 you have ever owned? I have owned Brownings, Remingtons, Rugers, Berettas, Sigs,…whats your favorite though?

Who wants to see the TCR compared to the CLASSIC Ruger 10/22 ????

    Dang great price!!! I saw this at the store the other day, they were asking $350….. I ended up ordering a Citadel Trakr instead due to costs

    WTH my parents got ripped off then cause they bought me one for my 16th here in a few days and got for $360, and I live in WV so there’s no Sells tax on firearms and ammo anymore so that’s a bonus I guess

    Great review! Thanks 👍my favorite 22 is the Ruger 1022.

    Can you by chance use a factory Ruger trigger pack and bolt in this receiver?

    I have a Ruger SR22 decked out with Magpul Pistol grip and adjustable stock with a Nikon P22 scope. And of course 25rnd mags. That thing is a tack driver!

    I’ve only shot one .22 in my life. That was I believe a lil daisy(?). It was a small pink rifle. We were cutting zip ties in half at my bachelor party with it. That was a fun gun.

    I just bought one of these ….. I have a Ruger 10 22 and I love it. It’s one of my favorites that I shoot. I can’t wait to do a comparison of my TCR 22 and my Ruger 10 22. This should be a lot of fun to compare them and at the same time enjoy a day at the range.

    I can’t even find these anywhere online…is TC going outta business?

    The fact that you have to say mother may I to the ATF pisses me off but I will leave that full rant for another time. That is a nice little rifle. I like it a lot. It’s nice light rifle that can be carried for hours. The red dot that comes with it is actually quite good. Thanks for sharing yours.

    I would buy that 👍

  12. Hillbilly Ohio on August 21, 2022 at 9:03 pm

    I was thinking that thing would at least cost 300 being a Thompson. The best 22 rifle I ever had was a Remington 597, that thing is so accurate!
