Went rifle shopping with my Dad today to avoid Christmas decorating. Our Gander Mountain store had a TC Icon in .243 on the shelf. Since neither of us has had our hands on an Icon and Dad was looking for a .243, it was exciting at first. The rifle looked great except for th bolt handle which already showed some flash rust from handling. They pulled another identical rifle out of the back room and it showed the same rust! Seems like TC has a big problem.....think what it would look like after a typical day hunting. Dad was prepared to buy the rifle until we found the rust. He ended up ordering a CZ550. Very dissapointing.
