“The new T/C Compass rifle was developed with premium features to deliver a highly-capable bolt-action rifle that can match any budget. The rifles are shipping now, giving consumers plenty of time to mount optics and bring them to the range for sighting in before this year’s hunting season,” said Danielle Sanville, Brand Manager for Thompson/Center Arms.

The T/C Compass rifle features an adjustable trigger, pillar bedded action, and a free-floated 5R rifled barrel with guaranteed MOA accuracy.
