Thompson/Center Arms announced a new version of its award winning T/C Venture bolt-action rifle with the introduction of the T/C Venture Compact. Engineered with a shorter barrel and a slimmer profile, the Venture Compact addresses the needs of smaller statured shooters, including women and youth, by matching them with a proven bolt-action rifle expertly crafted to meet their needs.
A leader in both value and performance, the T/C Venture is well known among experienced hunters for its inherent accuracy and innovative features. Now, the Venture line has been further expanded with new specifications including a 20-inch free-floating blued barrel with 5R rifling and target crown. With a reduced weight of 6 ¾ pounds and shortened overall length of 40 ¾ inches, the T/C Venture Compact is appropriately sized for small stature shooters. Providing improved handling in the field, the T/C Venture Compact offers youth hunters a rifle that can be easily altered through its one-inch adjustable spacer included with the stock.
“Since its introduction, the T/C Venture has been the winner of multiple industry awards, each touting the rifle’s innovative features, reliable performance and economical price,” said Craig Cushman, Director of Marketing for Thompson/Center Arms. “With this wide endorsement came the demand for a compact version, ideally suited for youth and female hunters. Understanding the requirements needed, Thompson/Center stepped up to the challenge and delivered a well-balanced, accurate rifle with the debut of the T/C Venture Compact.”
While the rifle dimensions are new, the core of the T/C Venture Compact maintains its guaranteed MOA (Minute of Angle) accuracy, user-adjustable trigger, nitrate coated fat bolt design with 60-degree lift and roller-burnished receiver. Whether at the range or in the field, shooters will appreciate the rifle’s 5R rifling which not only enables Thompson/Center Arms’ MOA guarantee (three shots in a one-inch group or less at 100 yards with premium ammunition), but also reduces copper fouling, providing more consistency in high-use shooting situations and significantly less cleaning time.
The T/C Venture Compact is standard with a classic styled composite stock featuring traction grip panels that give the rifle a striking look and positive feel in adverse weather conditions. For easy installation of optics, the rifle comes standard with Weaver-style scope bases installed. The T/C Venture Compact is packaged with the QD sling swivel studs, a single stack 3+1 detachable nylon magazine and is backed by Thompson/Center’s lifetime warranty.
The T/C Venture Compact will initially be chambered in .22-250, .243, 7mm-08 and .308.
