I will chime in and say I prefer any TC rifles over any other product, but I agree that a break action is much easier to clean so look in your price bracket for something along this line. I'm not a big Traditions or CVA person. Look on line great buys can be had on auction sites. I gave under 300.00 for my TC Triumph/shipping, a really great rifle for the money. I would put TC products against any thing out there, period.
