T/CR22 info?



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi, I am looking to buy a T/CR22 with a Houge overmolded thumbhole stock with carbon fiber barrel.

Has anyone here owned one and what are your opinions on it as far as accuracy and how well it functions. I have never owned a Ruger 10/22 and thought the T/CR 22 might be a better choice. All opinions and experiences are appreciated!

Thanks
Wonderdog1

Buy plain tcr22

Add barrel and kidd drop in trigger kit



Better starting point then a 10/22.

It really depends on what you want to do, I agree. Won’t buy a car when I actually need a truck.

Clearly you donít own a TC/R 22.
I do, and many CZís. Ever tried to pull the trigger on a 513 Farmer? The TC/R is the best off the shelf (and affordable) upgrade to the Ruger 10/22 out there. The TC/R has a good trigger and many welcome upgrades over the nearly 57 year-old 10/22. Threaded barrel, LSHO, better sights and a built in rail. If I had to leave with only one 10/22 pattern rifle, Iíd take my Brimstone modded TC/R.

This sums up my thinking. I bought one last November. It's super.

We haven't scoped it or shot groups on paper (except for basic sighting-in).

We're using it for "rimfire challenge," and it's easily accurate enough for that.

Maybe best of all, it runs 99%. We've had a couple oddball jams or misfires, but those were due to faulty ammo or me messing with the trigger.

/QUOTE]

I agree 100%. I bought Performance Center Altamont stocked fluted steel barrel version and since then have replaced barrel with a Kidd, the firing pin with a Kidd, had the trigger Brimstoned, added a pillar in the stock screw. Now it shoots like I thought it should from the beginning. The extra $ for the carbon fiber barreled version isnít worth it. Youíll likely keep the Hogue stock, though. Best to buy the base model and build it up from there. The Thompson receiver and bolt have worked great and is very reliable with all ammo Iíve tried, and primarily I shoot subsonic stuff.

The factory carbon barrel is a step between the basic rifle and custom barrels and reflected in the pricing.

Agree, better than a 10/22. Best bolt hold open yet for a 10/22, one of the major features missing from the Ruger. Trigger should have been upgraded with the carbon fiber barrel, again, compromises to hold the price point.

Unless you're looking to spend nearly a thousand on a 10/22 style, go for it.
