It’s a lot more like your great-grand-pappy’s favorite rifle than the ones you prefer – it’s a new addition to the Taylor’s Firearms 2021 lifestyle series; it’s the TC86 Takedown rifle. The Taylor’s and Company TC86 Takedown is a .45-70 lever action hunting rifle they describe as a weapon made for the “…ultimate expedition, while maintaining a finish fit for a classic design.”

Here’s the remainder of the release we were sent:

The TC86 becomes a versatile companion for any hunt, hike, or to just go plinking at the range. The color case receiver and checkered pistol grip walnut stock.  A rubber butt plate absorbs recoil, and the wide lever size allows for easy use in all conditions. It also Includes a weaver rail sight with a skinner peep sight on it

“Taylor’s & Company brings to the gun enthusiast classic firearms that made cowboys, lawmen and outlaws famous, but with a modern twist,” said Rob Girard, VP of Sales & Marketing. “All Taylor’s premium firearms are made using the latest in precision machinery and high-quality materials with one goal in mind; to create reliable and accurate reproductions of Civil War, Old West, hunting and tactical guns from the 19th century. The TC86 Takedown is a perfect example of this.”

The rail up top can be utilized for optics, a rifle-suitable weapon light (in an offset mount), or whatever else you might want.

The TC86 Takedown is available and models are shipping now.
