The TC is a great platform if you are into one receiver and multiple barrels. I went through the TC stage in my life, I do not own one at this time. Most of mine shot fair to good, loved the contender weight and length. With that said, I now own several CVA's. My preference is the Stainless Scout Compact V2. Honestly, they shoot better than my TC's did, short and light, with a great trigger, at a very affordable price. Some love wood stocks, no such a thing for the CVA's.
