Was told today they come with a 5 MOA guarantee so they must be accurate. Sign me up for one.

The ICON had a 1MOA guarantee and the ones I have shot easily met that.




5MOA is more like a few Remingtons I have owned.

They wouldn't advertise much if it was a 5 moa guarantee. Unless it was a cheap .22 and even then confused2

Sounds like something a guy at the local academy gun counter would tell me

My wife does not get as incensed over mangleing the minutia of exact advertising claims on stuff like I do...but then she's never sold a product that it was inportant to NOT Misrepresent the Products "Features - Advantages - and Benefits of.

ALL CF TC Rifles use's a patented "5R" rifling system, as does Remmy, PacNor barrels and some other folks too - look at the TC Home Page F A B's to confirm....and has a 1 MOA factory Accuracy Guarantee using premium ammo, as do several other mfg'ers also...

Now if a rifle mfg'er would warranty "5 MOA" accuracy at say some distance beyond 500 yards, I'd most likey be waaay interested. Just Sayin'

5 MOA at 500 yards is 25 inches. 5 MOA is no good at any range.

I was looking at the advertising for the Dimension line, part of it goes, '5R rifling and MOA guarantee'. I bet someone compressed everything together mentally to get 5 MOA guarantee. It still means they're an idiot not knowing what it means.

Surely you didn't see the . In front of the 5? Nobody worth their weight would advertise that.

I didn't read it. If you look at the original post someone told it to me. It was so egregiously wrong I thought it was funny and that I should share it.

Having spent some time in my dealers behind the counter...I can imagine anything could be said by some body wanting to impress some one else who had no comprehension of what the deatails actually mean...OTOH I've heard store staff do the same thing either as a joke like the old party game of starting a statement and see what it sounds like at the end of the line of 20-30- ??? people...or the guy making the statement really was a an idjit. Just Sayin BT&Heard That kinda stuff both ways.
