(5 out of 5) T/C Compass 6.5 Creedmoor
by from Roaring River, North Carolina on

Same trigger as the others. Not very adjustable. Own 3 and have had to have trigger jobs on all of them. After trigger jobs, outstanding shooters.

(5 out of 5) 3/4 inch MOA out of the box
by from Sanford, NC on

First let me say thanks to Sportsmans Outdoor Superstore for getting the 6.5 Creedmoor rifles back in stock before the T/C rebate ended. This rifle was delivered and I checked the action screws and scope base for proper torque. They were very loose. Potential problem fixed. I had purchased a few boxes of Hornady ammo to try with this gun, 120 gr A-Max, 140 gr ELD, 147 gr ELD, and 129 gr White tail. I wanted some of the 123 gr ELDX but couldn't find any. Using three shots to sight in gun at 100 yards, proceeded. The best 5 shot groups came with 140 gr ELD at .76 inch and 120 gr A-Max at .97 inch. Sub MOA out of the box!

For a rifle that after rebate cost me less than $225. The gun was very comfortable to shoot and the trigger, while heavy, was repeatable. I don't think I will adjust the weight of trigger pull since the gun will be used for hunting and utility shooting. Great gun for a great price!

(3 out of 5) Tough bolt
by from Billings, Montana on

Bought this as a Christmas gift for my 9 year old son who can start hunting next season. I love the look weight and ballistics of the 6.5, however I had a really hard time working the bolt action stiff and almost loose in the hole after passing the gun around to all family members who hunt they all agreed so I went back to Cabelas and tried a couple different tc compass rifles and same thing....so I cant say how well it shoots but it was nice looking and cost efficient but just didnt feel right

(5 out of 5) T/C Compass 6.5 Creedmoor
by from Cincinnati, OH on

The best shooting rifle I've ever had. Four shots at 100 yds. They almost touched from a bench with a lead sled.

(5 out of 5) Boyds making stocks now
by from Palo Alto, CA on

BTW just got my Boyds laminate stock, they are inletting for the Compass. Drop in. Little finagling but it is a SWEET looking and shooting piece now!

(5 out of 5) Wow
by from Palo Alto, CA on

My custom Bartlein and Liljas are great, they better be. But this for around 200 after rebate is stupid amazing.

Good: shoots AS WELL or better than my TIkkas, Savages, and customs. Like a ragged hole and doesn't seem to throw shots even with the thin barrel. Had it out 4 times. Cold and clean, bull. Like center dot. Hot after 10 rounds Eh, maybe grows to a one inch group. I bought the 6.5 and the 223, trying not to buy another...

The bad which is good for me, is that the trigger needs a little breathing-on. Which is ok because after you do an easy fix, you feel like a champ with a very nice adjustable trigger. The trigger secret? Remove a big chunk of metal. I won't tell you which, but there are 3 pieces, and one you straight-up remove. Then it's a great trigger. Will it go off with the safety off on a chambered round if you drop it on a hard surface? Yup! Should you ever walk around cocked and locked safety off? Up to you, but I don't so no problem. Stupid stupid accurate rifle that makes inexpensive RPRs look foolish, which is fun!

(4 out of 5) Not perfect yet
by from michigan city, IN on

Almost a wonderful gun from the factory. After fixing, it is a WOW gun, as good as my RPR. I received a TC Compass in 6.5- cleaned it well, re-tightened the loose stock and scope base screws and headed to the range. As advertised, 1 inch groups at the get go. Went home. After careful glass bedding the rear pillar and the front pillar area and putting a Win 70 target spring in the trigger, it was back to the range. Holy cow- of the 4 groups it was .318/.330.91/1.1 inch. Note the last two were due to two thrown shots, as I got REALLY excited. If TC/S&W makes a solidwood stock for this gun it would eclipse all others. I paid a total of $240.00 take home price!

(3 out of 5) Really Bad Trigger
by from Winnsboro, TX on

I have a TC Dimension with various caliber barrels that I really like, so I bought this Compass in 6.5 Creedmoor believing it was steal at the current price and rebate. Big mistake. This rifle has the worst trigger of any of the over twenty bolt guns I've owned. Its adjustable in theory, but the reality is that it won't go below 4.5 lbs, and its basically impossible to get the creep out of it. I've talked to TC about this twice and basically been told that's the way it is. They'll let me send it back, but won't promise the trigger will improve. Furthermore, I sent the rebate in around July 24 and still have yet to receive confirmation that they're even processing it September 18. You are much better off going with Savage, Ruger or Mossberg.
