Rock Island Armory Now Shipping .22 TCM Rifles

posted on August 20, 2014

Rock Island Armory has shipped the first batch of 100 production .22 TCM rifles to the United States, and plans to deliver 300 additional rifles to the American market each month for the foreseeable future. The bolt-action rifle is exclusively designed to utilize Armscor's .22 TCM 40-grain jacketed hollow point centerfire cartridge and averages 2,800 feet per second out of the barrel.

The first shipment of .22 TCM rifles can be found through Big Rock Sports, Ellett Brothers, Davidson's, RSR Group INC, Williams Shooters Supply and Zanders Sporting Goods. Additional retailers should have the rifles in stock at some point this coming fall.

"We're excited to bring this rifle to U.S. consumers," said Martin Tuason, CEO of Rock Island Armory and Armscor Precision International. "The door is now open to an entirely new segment of shooters to enjoy the merits of this new and powerful cartridge."

Armscor developed the .22 TCM series in order to provide more firepower in lower caliber firearms and ammunition. TCM stands for "Tuason Craig Magnum," in honor of its creators.

• Chambered exclusively for .22 TCM ammunition

• Interchangeable with .22 TCM 17 round pistol magazine
• 22.75 inch barrel
