Re: T/C Icon bolt action rifle

I dont know why they keep making blued rifles. If they wanted that look they should teflon coat the SS. I only buy blued rifles. So far other than the grouping(which is one prototype there was nothing substantial posted about it other than a pretty stock.

You don't know why they continue to make them, yet that's all you buy? And if you go to the 24 hour campfire theres a good bit more info than posted here

Re: T/C Icon bolt action rifle

That rifle in the picture had a much tougher coating on it than blueing I believe it might have been Ceracote. No doubt stainless, fluting, composite stocks and a few other popular features will be added. You have to start somewhere and blued walnut is a nice place to begin. I can tell you that if you saw the quality of the wood and the assembly you would probably want that rifle.

That piece cut and pasted in 24 Hours is very vague, the guy worked from second-hand info and did not hit important stuff like extractors, ejectors, bolt-stops and releases, type of rifling, interchangeable bolt handles and future models that are planned. Patience is a virtue, some neat stuff is going to happen...

Re: T/C Icon bolt action rifle

Sounds good.
Any hints it might be used as a action for a bolt specialty pistol???

I'm more of a stainlss/synthetic guy to tell you the truth, one of those is too pretty for me, I'd be too scared of messing it up to use it much
