    This has to be the most revolting rifle I've ever seen. I thought the new Browning X-bolt was ugly until I saw this. I think Thompson/Center hired the design team that came up with the Nissan Juke to "style" this gun. If you want a switch barrel gun that won't make you vomit in your mouth every time you pull it out of the safe get an Encore or a Savage. I know style is very subjective but it's the equivalent of a guy walking down the street wearing rubber boots, a diaper, a silk petticoat with his hair bleached out but for the blue pigtails. I'm done venting now.

    And for me the back part of the stock is what disfigures it. The rest I like.

    Compared to a German silver mounted Ohio .40cal 42" barrel Squirrel Rifle (in flint of course) How ugly is a AK-47 clone or a AR-15ish thing? Its all a matter of design appeal. Some people will like this like some guys like 55-56-57 chevys and others like Honda Fits.

    Pablo Picasso is alive and doing well (as a gun designer it would seem).

    The look of the future? In levers and bolts. I hope not, does anyone have a time machine? they need to go back and re-think these aboritions.

    I would like the have that just because it is so ugly. Like a hairless dog. Solicits reactions from people. Just ridiculous though that is for sure.

    If you show up at the range with that thing, John Wayne will rise up from the dead and beat you to death with it.

    No kidding! :) -- with those rails a flashlight and green illuminator would really add to the mix hahaha. The SPX + their 12g chainsaw and you are king of the range.

    The look of the guy's face presenting it tells it all. He doesn't look 'proud' - http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2012/01/18/mossberg-tactical-464-spx-lever-action/

    T/C Dimension - yes ugly - but at least the 'hump' in the stock serves a purpose as a cheek weld and then the end of the stock comes back down to the lower shoulder. That is if I am seeing that right.

    Ugly yes but in a 22-250 thats one of the best coyote hunting guns out there. Pretty straight shooter. Just my opinion.

    Ugly as sin, but I will probably own one complete rifle and a few barrels. Ugly doesn't outweigh performance for me. The Sig and the tactical lever gun I definitely have no use for.
