Re: T/C Icon bolt action rifle
Like you I am anxiously awaiting the new rifles, hope to shoot them Jan 10th at a shooting day prior to the SHOT Show in Florida. As for your questions, the action is not controled round feed. They did save a large supply of fancy wood when they had a huge fire at the factory a few years back and plan on using it first (6000+ stocks is one number being mentioned), price point significantly under 1000 dollars and when they will be shipping is a very good question. From some stuff I was just told I bet the .308 Win. is the first caliber shipping, .30TC is still a work in progress. There is some major tooling up going to take place but they have the people to handle that. I would not be surprised to see some out by late spring, early summer but that is a guess, pure and simple.
Hope this is of value, this is a big priority for T/C despite the sale of the company etc. Going to be a crazy year for them with the Icon and Triumph rifles plus the .30T/C and lots of slick accessories.
One thing I know about T/C and a certain small group of guys who work in a very quiet little building over to the side of the main office - the neat stuff will keep comin'.
