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...
