The TCM series was inspired by the need for more firepower in lower caliber firearms and ammo. The series was designed and developed by Master Firearm Engineer Fred Craig and Armscor / Rock Island Armory CEO, Martin Tuason. The TCM stands for Tuason Craig Magnum.
The .22 TCM bullet has been called the “Flame Thrower” by one prominent reviewer and has been embraced by hunters, self-defense and shooting enthusiasts.
The overwhelming demand for the bullet’s industry leading high velocity and stopping power has prompted the company to expand its US production facilities.
