My new TVM rifle showed up today. Now I need to get out on the front porch and do some shooting.
Overall I think it looks pretty good. Only time will tell when it starts paying for itself in venison!!
I know it is tough to take pictures of a rifle that is so long. But it does not feel long when I shoulder the rifle. It actually feels pretty light and handy. I was aiming at things out the window and the rifle was rock steady.
I don't know if that is because of the swamped barrel or not. But it feels extremely comfortable. Tom.
The balance of a custom job, vs a production rifle is indeed quite different. My long rifle weighs less than a TC Hawken and is far less front heavy. Mine has a straight taper instead of a swamped barrel.
