Performance Center announced recently that it has expanded its rifle line with the addition of four new lightweight .22LR rimfire rifles. The new Performance Center T/CR22 rifles feature a lightweight carbon fiber barrel and ergonomic stocks in multiple color options. Co-developed by Performance Center and Thompson/Center Arms™, the Performance Center T/CR22 rimfire rifles operate using the reliable T/CR22 semi-automatic rifle action and 10 round rotary magazine, while maintaining compatibility with most aftermarket 10/22® parts and accessories.

Tony Miele, Sr. Director, New Products and Performance Center, said, “Building upon the success of the Performance Center T/CR22 rifles, we have designed and developed this lightweight rimfire rifle for competitive shooting and small-game hunting. These rifles are designed to reduce weight through their slim, ergonomic stocks and carbon fiber barrels while being engineered to deliver the supreme accuracy and ergonomics that Performance Center is known for.”
