It’s growing on me

This is not a Prop from the set of STARGATE.  This is not Admiral Adama’s sniper rifle.  This is not a mock up for the new HALO game.  It’s the TC Dimension hunting rifle.

It’s “Wash Your Eyes Out With Bleach” ugly.  The option of swapping barrels means nothing to me… So why do I like it?

Well, as stupidly hideous as the damn thing looks… it feels awesome when you bring the gun up to your shoulder.  And the trigger… honestly, it’s one of the best “Hunting” triggers I’ve ever felt on a gun intended for actual hunting.  It has some weight to it… but there is no movement and it breaks as crisp as any gunwriter metaphor can equate.  It’s not a Bench Rest Trigger… but you don’t want that on a Field Gun.  Too many people think they do… and those people are terribly wrong.  You want a trigger that has a touch of deliberate intent, and then breaks exactly at the moment you want it to.  Like this trigger.  The height of the comb is perfect for when you mount any reasonable scope.  This allows a good consistent cheek weld, consistent aim through the scope… and combine with that trigger… this is going to let you make those once in a life time shots all the time.

  1. I’d check on the stock and accuracy with real-life people before getting too interested. The other T/C rifles have horrible synthetic stocks–the fore-ends are so soft they easily get push left, right or up to contact the barrel and destroy accuracy.

    1. I don’t need to check with anyone. I’ve shot more than a few. The TC Venture is fantastic, for the money… hard to beat. And the Dimensions are a step up.

      1. Which stock? I _want_ to like their rifles, but had a bad experience with the T/C Icon Weather Shield.

        1. Yeah, I wasn’t big on the Icon rifle. Especially in 7mm and .308… well… I just didn’t like them at all. The Ventures though are sweet.
