Thompson Center’s new semi-auto .22LR is a called the T/CR22 and it features a Magpul stock, oversized bolt handle, ten round rotary magazine, a barrel with a threaded muzzle, and here’s the kicker – it accepts almost all Ruger 10/22 aftermarket accessories including barrels.
One of the cool features of the T/CR22 is that on the last round, with factory mags, the bolt locks open. This is a feature missing from most other semi-auto .22 rifles.
The front sight is very bright green fiber optic and the rear sight is an adjustable peep sight. The aluminum receiver has a Picatinny rail milled in so it’s ready to mount any optic immediately without the need to purchase an aftermarket base. The bolt is stainless steel and should literally last forever.
The barrel is 17 inches long and the rifle points very naturally and is rather lightweight. We didn’t get to shoot it but first impressions are that it’s going to be a great little .22.
Full retail is just $399. Expect them to be cheaper on GunsAmerica. For more information visit TCArms.com.
