(5 out of 5) Thompson Center Compass .243
by from Stamford, CT on

SOSS, Thank you for the super fast shipping, rifle arrived in perfect condition and as advertised. Great service. Thanks again!

(5 out of 5) Great gun for the price
by from Waterville, NY on

How can ANYONE complain about anything with his gun for the price You're not buying a $700.00 to $1,000.00 gun. This gun is awesome with the new 5R rifling. This great gun will out shoot a gun two to three times the price. Check the internet with all the great reviews. It's the hottest gun on the market right now....

Trigger is not very good. Can't really adjust very well. Got trigger job. Sweet little shooter.

(4 out of 5) Great Budget Rifle
by from Dawsonville, Georgia on

The rifle is loaded with features for the price. SOSS shipped my .243 out quickly, and it arrived on time.The rifle shoots great and I am happy with the accuracy. I have only shot Winchester 100gr Super X so far, but will have some Fusion 95gr to try by Wednesday. My only gripes are the small, slippery bolt handle and the heavy trigger pull. Those issues kept me from giving the rifle a 5 overall. The bolt handle issue was easily corrected by slipping on some rubber O-rings that fit scuba-tank valves. The bigger issue is that the trigger, while crisp, is heavier than specified in the literature. These are post-recall guns with triggers that have a low end pull weight of 5.5lbs. The Compass is a good shooting gun at a great price though.

(5 out of 5) Amazing
by from Goshen, AR on

First shipping was super fast from SOSS. They are great to work with. I got the email it was back in stock and 4 days later I am on the range. I put a Redfield Revenge 3x9 on this and with cheap PPU ammo. Had one hole dead on the target after using 4 rounds to get the scope dead on. 100 yards with a new gun and 16 rounds thru a hole the size of a dime. Are you serious? For this price magazine is nice and no issues. Stock has a nice feel and recoil pad built in did nice. Already had sling studs. Just an amazing deal and can not wait to go see what this can do at some longer ranges.

Recently purchased the compass .243. It's a very nice rifle. The stock feels cheaper but it's a low end gun. A very nice one. It's a sharp shooter, groups touching at 100 yards with Federal Fusion. Awesome gun! For $380 for the package, can't beat it!
