NEW for 2012 Thompson Center "Dimension" rifle

Check it out, T/C Arms just launched it this morning. Looks pretty neat.

Re: NEW for 2012 Thompson Center "Dimension" rifle

Curious how the barrel locks into the action, & seperate bolts, etc & keeps the same head spacing.
What trigger? Is it adjustable?
They must have something figured out or they wouldn't give the MOA guarantee.
It'll be interesting to see if it takes off, & what aftermarket parts accompany it if it does. I'd definately need a better looking stock, or I wouldn't be seen in public with it.
That is one ugly rifle. But a real cool concept.

I have no idea what they're trying to accomplish with the stock but I think it's about the ugliest thing I've ever seen. I do agree that overall it's a cool concept. It'll be interesting to hear some real life feedback on it once they hit the market.

+1 on the ugly stock comment....I wonder how many of the "TV hunters" will show up using it? Seemed like they were all using TC Ventures last year.

Uh ooooh, another barrel nut! That thing makes a Savage look like the Prom Queen! I like the concept though.
