Re: T/C Compass recall
Yes, I was at a shooting expo 3 weeks ago and stopped by the T/C tent and shot both the Venture and the Compass. Both .30-06. The Venture felt like a hefty, pretty good quality bolt gun, but the Compass felt terribly cheap. Only good thing about it was that it was fairly comfortable in the shouldered position. The Winchester model 70 imitation wing safety was gritty and obnoxious looking. The stock and magazine looked cheap, and the bolt felt way too small in the hand, kind of like it belonged on a .22 rifle. I'd buy that Venture any day though, and I love T/C muzzleloaders, so not bashing the company, but I think they're going to miss their mark on that really entry level Compass.
