Comparing Cannons: A Closer Look at the TCM Line

Posted by Team Armscor on Jun 19, 2020

The 1911 has been in the limelight for over 100 years, and it’s not going away any time soon. This iconic piece of weaponry has set the standard for modern pistols since the turn of the 20th century, and at Armscor and Rock Island Armory, we’re converging the old with the new. The TCM line of 1911s combines the iconic with the cutting edge. This line of 1911s chambered in the Armscor exclusive 22TCM caliber has three options to choose from. The TCM Standard MS, the TCM Standard FS and the TCM Premium FS. Today, we’ll be going over this dynamic line of pistols and learn what sets these cannons apart from the rest.

Here’s a closer look at the TCM Line.

Standard MS Benefits

The mid-size TCM Standard is going to be your best concealed carry option. Its 17-round capacity and smaller barrel length is going to help you stay fully equipped to defend yourself. And with a low profile and anti-snag front and rear sights, drawing your gun is as easy as can be. With the Standard MS you don’t need to worry about a slow draw or low capacity ammunition.

 

Standard FS Benefits

The full-size TCM Standard is quite the companion. Its longer barrel and sturdy size pushes out 22 TCM ammunition like a rocket, and its nice weight and quality checkered grips give you great control. With little to no recoil to worry about, you’ll be shooting all day at the range.

 

Premium FS Benefits

 The TCM Premium is an engineered marvel. It comes with a full-sized barrel and, like all TCM models, was built to drive the 22 TCM cartridge over 2000 feet per second. The Premium is really your best bet if you want all the bells and whistles. It comes fitted with battle ready G10 grips for a very comfortable and durable shooting experience. You’ll also have the ability to customize the TCM Premium. It comes standard with a full length under picatinny rail.
