SPRINGFIELD, Mass., (May 3, 2018) – Thompson/Center Arms today announced that it has introduced a new semi-automatic rimfire rifle: the Thompson/Center T/CR22 rifle.

Danielle Sanville, Brand Manager of Thompson/Center Arms, said, “Thompson/Center has a long, storied history of innovation in firearms, from muzzleloaders to bolt-action rifles.

The new T/CR22 rifle incorporates upgraded features right out of the box – from its enhanced materials, to its ergonomics, to its compatability with aftermarket components.
