Designed as a hunting and sporting rifle, the Thompson/Center R55 is a magazine-fed rifle that is relatively simple to understand and safe for beginning shooters, while the retaining outstanding out-of-the-box accuracy that T/C rifles are known for. The R55 has been factory-tested to shoot one-half inch groups at 50 yards. Thompson/Center manufactures all of their barrels in-house, ensuring consistent quality. The R55 classic consists of a blued steel barrel and receiver on a walnut stock with a Monte Carlo-style cheek piece. The flared pistol grip is comfortable to hold and the right-side-mounted, thumb-operated safety is easy to reach. This rifle features an adjustable steel rear sight and a ramp front with fiber optics. Its wood is in very good condition and its metal and bore are in excellent condition.
