Re: Thompson Center Icon Warlord
I read an article on the Warlord. They said it was quite the rifle for the price. All the factory loads that they shot through it produced sub .5MOA. There were a few that shot around the 1" mark, but not many. Seems to me the Cor-Bond and Federal produced the best result. The price tag was right around $2600 to $2700 dollars. They said it comes out of T/C's custom rifle shop and uses a 5R rifling hand lapped at the factory. You can get it in a 10, 11.25, or 12 twist rate. Don't remember if they mentioned anything about the Lapua because they were testing the .308. It wears a Manners M2A stock and has 5rnd and 10rnd clip availability.
They said it seems a little pricey, but one has to remember this is essentially a custom rifle. For the price and quality it would be hard to say that it is not custom. Because of the DBM they had to remove the middle integrated recoil lug. The author was quite impressed with the rifle. On a side not, I got a chance to fondle one at the North Eastern Sportsman Show. It was quite impressive. I have to say I really like the short bolt throw and the action is pretty smooth. I didn't snap the trigger, but the year prior it was a crisp pull. The stock and pistol grip felt really comfortable. I could get use to that style of stock quickly. The test rifle had a 3# pull if I remember correctly. Sounds like a winner for the guy that doesn't' want to wait on a custom build. Should they produce a .338LM it could be a contender with some of the bigger builders.
