TCR – Tactical Competition Rifles
TCR Tactical Competition Rifles are engineered and designed with the tactical shooting competitor in mind. Experienced Palma, F-Class, F-TR, and other long range shooters worked closely with our engineering team and gunsmiths to build on APO’s experience gained developing ASW Precision Tactical Rifles. Our objective was to design an out of the box “dead-nuts” accurate precision rifle for competitors shooting a variety of tactical matches.
The TCR line of custom tactical competition rifles is available in range of calibers to include .260 Rem, 6.5 Creedmoor, .308Win, .300 Winchester Magnum, and .338 Norma Magnum. TCR rifles are built on precision actions made by Surgeon, McMillan and others on the patented SABER®-FORSST® MOD-0 modular rifle chassis that is proudly manufactured in the USA. The SABER® chassis is made from aerospace grade alloys, advanced composite materials and lightweight high strength carbon fiber. A1A models have 5-round detachable magazine, and A3 models use a 5 or 10 round magazine.
TCR rifles are barreled with Pinnacle Series 416 stainless steel fluted barrels, engineered using APO’s proprietary B.A.S.E.D.™ barrel engineering software. Each TCR barrel is finished with an 11 degree target crown and the Magnum series uses a highly effective muzzle brake that reduces recoil and muzzle rise. TCR’s can be ordered with an optional screw-on muzzle thread protector (for F-TR competition) or sound suppressor. Premium tactical two-stage triggers are set to 3.5 lbs for a smooth take up and crisp let off for precise sub-MOA shot placement in the heat of competition.
TCR rifles feature an ergonomic MOD-O Quattro carbon fiber forend that is comfortable in the off-hand shooting position and reduces heat mirage from the barrel. Additionally the forend has 12 o’clock and 6 o’clock MIL-STD 1913 accessory rail positions that accommodate “clip-on” night vision devices on top, and a bipod on the bottom of the forend.
The fixed SABER HTA ergonomic shoulder stock is fit to the user with tooled adjustments for length of pull, cheek-piece height, and vertical recoil pad placement. The Butt Hook rounds out the shoulder stock design, and a versatile multi-position adjustable field Monopod is an available option. TCR rifles have flush cup sling swivel attachment points along the length of this rifle.
All TCR models have an ambidextrous paddle lever magazine release and the AMBI-TG (trigger guard) release is available for select models. TCR’s are equipped with Magpul M1AD modular conformable hand grip sets, and are adjustable for both hand grip angle, and for grip-to-trigger distance to obtain proper shooting hand position and trigger finger placement.
TCR rifles are coated with a rugged, dull non-reflective finish that meets MIL-STD 810G for corrosion resistance. The standard rifle color is black with the forend in natural carbon fiber black. Optional colors include Flat Dark Earth, Nordic Gray and OD Green. TCR rifles are simple to maintain, use no bedding and are maintainable in the field by the user with a simple SABER® Field Multi-Tool or more complete Precision Rifle Field Tool Kit.
TCR precision tactical rifles can also be delivered with premium variable power day optical sights, SABER EO Scope Rings, alternate muzzle brake and suppressor combinations, match grade ammunition, TACT3 tripod spotting scope kits, laser range finders, Field Firing Solutions Ballistic Software and other essential long range shooting accessories. Further customization of the TCR rifles can be performed by APO to meet customer requirements. A complete range of precision shooting accessories are available from APO.
