Re: TC Compass

I fondled one at Grice's about three weeks ago. I was really looking forward to their release and went with intentions of buying one. However, I was not impressed and left without one. I really love the TC Ventures and own several of them. I would definitely spend the extra $80-$90 for the Venture.

Re: TC Compass

Thank you for the honest reply. My brother is looking and I have been pushing the Venture...saw the compass in the new Grices flier and thought it would be worth a look at $299.

Re: TC Compass

My only complaint of the Venture is that the bolt doesn't lock and if opened slightly while hunting in thick cover won't shoot. I am always checking mine and had a friend not get a shot once because of it. I like that the compass has a three position safety but it really feel cheap compared to the Venture.

Re: TC Compass

Too drag around in the woods, drag it over rocks, for $299.00 you'd be hard pressed to beat this rifle...that's less than the cost of a barrel blank! It comes in 300 win mag also with a clip and adjustable trigger ...tuff to beat

I'm far from a rifle snob and own several inexpensive rifles. However, the compass' action/barrel looks like a venture's action/barrel that was finished with a course file. If you have handled an Axis or Ruger American, imagine a stock that is half as thick as theirs, sounds twice as hollow and flexes twice as much. The gun felt really front heavy due to the stock. The venture's stock is not a McMillan but feels like one compared to the compass'. I do like the threaded barrel that is standard on the compass

Re: TC Compass

Hey, for $299.00 you still can't go wrong....more than life kely it's the same venture without the finish and as far as the stock goes, you wouldn't have to worry about scratching it, tossing it in the truck, mud, rain etc, it's already junk...can't wait to run into someone with one at the range, the only real thing that matters!

Re: TC Compass

Or just skip a couple cases of beer/smokes, save up the $80 bucks, and buy a venture. Well worth it

I think I'm an alright guy, I think I'm alright
