I was able to purchase a new TCR22 for $299.95 and with the $50 rebate S&W is offering that’s $249.95, a good buy in my opinion. If you just look at the rifle first thought is “oh another 10/22 clone” but there are significant differences and many thing s 10/22 owners like to do to their rifles are already done. The Receiver is drilled at the back so you can clean with a cleaning rod after removing the bolt, it has last shot hold open with factory magazines, its threaded 1/2 x 28 for the most common suppressors. It has a built in “peep” rear and florescent front sight, a Magpul designed stock and clear backing to the magazine so you can keep track of the rounds. Receiver is milled aluminum picatinny style, the bolt is machined stainless steel (very nicely finished compared to the 10/22. I had a Nikon EFR 3-9x Rimfire scope in my “box o scopes” and mounted it using Weaver bases, it could be mounted lower but I used what was on the scope for expediency.
First shots at 25 yards off a simple bull bag had five rounds cutting each other but the rest was too shaky to make a call accuracy wise but it looks like its going to be a shooter.
