(4 out of 5) Great rifle
by from Littleton, CO on

These are great rifles. I bought one in .223/5.56 to keep my first one, in 30/06 company. Haven’t had a chance to shoot it yet, but I’m hoping for great things. Mine doesn’t feed smoothly from the magazine, but may wear in over time. I am having a problem getting in the rebate website, though. A deal like that is hard to beat.

(5 out of 5) get more than what you have paid. TC compass .223/5.56
by from St Paul, MN on

Sportsman's Outdoor Superstore is my first choice online firearms store. Amazing deal. Always has smooth and easy transaction. I bought  TC compass 5.56 for coyote hunting. I put cabelas rifle scope and sight it in with federal American Eagle 5.56nato at 100 meter sub moa. I can't believe TC 5R will do that accuracy. Planning to get another one in a bigger caliber. I recommend it.

(5 out of 5) T/C Compass Low-Cost Accuracy Cant Be Beat!
by from Woodbridge, VA on

I love this little rifle that could! After sighting in at 100 yds w/ a 18x Bushnell scope my 1st 3 shot grouping with inexpensive American Eagle Tactical 55 gr 5.56 ammo was an amazing 0.609 grouping off a bipod! My second was also under 1!! So TCs MOA guarantee can be met without even using match grade ammo! I never dreamed Id have this accuracy and fun for so cheap! Sure the stock is plain and no frills, but the set up works. Future upgrades are now being limited to gun tape for the grip, a muzzle brake and lots of ammo as this is a great shooter! And another great price and smooth transaction buying through Sportsman Outdoor Superstore!

(5 out of 5) T/C Compass 5.56/223
by from Raleigh, NC on

After hours of video watching and reading many reviews I chose the T/C Compass in 5.56/223. 5.56 was the reason I decided on the Compass over the Venture. Only need one type of ammo for my AR15 and this. Dialed in the scope within 5 shots and spent the rest of the afternoon wearing out the bullseye. I highly recommend this rifle.

(4 out of 5) Great Budget Rifle
by from Bedford, OH on

This is a budget rifle that performs well! The action is smooth, the magazine feeds without issue, the threaded barrel is nice, and I was able to achieve sub-moa accuracy at 100 yards with Hornady 55gr ammunition. The downsides are that some parts are lower quality. The stock is flimsy and could at least use some extra stippling or checkered areas and the trigger has room for improvement. I found that my trigger was adjusted all the way to the lowest weight from the factory, and it was still around 4.5lbs pull. There was a little bit of creep in the trigger but it has a decent break to it. If an aftermarket option becomes available, I will likely buy a new trigger. Overall this rifle is great for the money and in 556/223 its a great range gun or coyote slayer for not a lot of cash.

(5 out of 5) Great deal for a very good basic rifle
by from Sebring, FL on

This is a budget package but the quality delivered for the price is exceptional. The rifle action is smooth and the guaranteed MOA accuracy is achievable. The trigger is surprisingly good with clean break. The Nikon scope is a no model edition, sold exclusively with packaged deals like this. Bore sighted at the factory, it required few adjustments to zero. Last five shots at the range were at 220 yards at a 10 inch plate all center hits. I choose the 556/223 format just because the ammo is cheaper than 308. But now I may wait for a 308 to come back in stock for boars. The Flambeau case is inexpensive, but it works quite well. BTW Butler Creek scope covers are 11 for the eye and 28 for the objective. Since the Nikon scope has no real model number it's tough to guess in advance.
