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.
