Ashbury Precision Ordnance Manufacturing has been created as a division of Ashbury International Group, a very successful military contract supplier of sniper team equipment. With a focus on sniper rifle development, the Tactical Competition Rifle (TCR) is a direct outgrowth of the development of the Asymmetric Warrior system.
Based on the outstanding Surgeon RLR rifle action, the TCR will be available in .300 Win Mag, .338 Norma Mag, .308 and .260 Rem. A commercial version of the SABER-FORSST modular stock has been developed as a “drop in, torque down and shoot” system. Precision CNC machining and coatings are done here in the US to ISO 9001:2000 specifications.
The buttstock is adjustable for length, cheekpiece height and pad height without tools, and folds to the left via a simple push-button. An integral monopod completes the butt assembly. The carbon fiber and aluminum forend leaves the barrel totally free-floating while providing a mirage shield. Hard points are installed on all sides to affix an assortment of rails for any accessory that may be required. The modular center section is perfectly mated to the receiver via Grade 8 screws; no bedding is required.
A 5-round detachable box magazine uses an ambidextrous paddle release just ahead of the triggerguard. Box magazines are a very nice feature, permitting simple loading, unloading and changes in ammunition type that traditional drop floorplates turn into a real chore.
