Martin and I have been talking about a TM1000 for some time now. I finally placed the order and Martin called to tell me that my rifle was ready this week. So, I picked up my rifle after work today and took it straight to the range to test out.

My rifle is sporting a grey laminate stock. It is a 12 fpe version that is set up for WFTF Division. I will also be getting one of Martin's nice knee risers to match the laminate stock. This is a truely awesome and complete Field Target rig!

I mounted one of my Leupold Competition 35x scopes using B-Square Weaver to Dovetail adaptors, and Leupold Quick Release low mounts. The alignment was spot on for me, and I didn't have any adjustments, shimming or other tinkering to do to the scope.

I initially set up paper targets at 15 and 25 yards. This was just to get a start with my scope. It only took a few shots to bring the pellets into one hole at 15 yards. So, I then moved on to 25 yards. Once again, with a little bit of minor adjusting, I had nice tight groups at 25 yards. I next measured out 50 yards and set up another paper target there. With an addition of 32 clicks from my zero point, the TM1000 was dropping pellets spot on. I shot a few groups that looked very good, then spent a few minutes really taking my time on a 5 shot group. I achieved a nice tight group which I posted a picture of below.

I am planning to ad a target type of butt plate to the rifle soon. It will likely be something similar to, if not exactly like what I have on my EV-2. I like the way those target buttplates "lock" into my shoulder when holding the rifle. So, I think that will be nice addition to the rifle.

After I got home, I measured my scope height, and entered all of my data to set up a ballistics chart for this rifle. Now that my initial chart is printed out, I am anxious to give my numbers a try. So, looks like another visit to the range is in my future! I will let you guys know how it's looking after a little more trigger time with the TM1000. So far, very promising!

Take care,

Harold Rushton

Well, maybe the groups will improve after the barrel is seasoned....... LOL!


I hope you bring that to Jeff & Dawns in a few weeks. I'd like to meet her in person.

Yes sir, I plan to have her all set up and ready to shoot by the next Tenn. match. All I need to do now is measure out my targets and verify this set of numbers that I printed last night. Otherwise, it's almost ready to go!

I'm looking forward to the next match!

I did not know that Martin was offering the laminated stocks. That is one great looker, for sure.

You are going to love that gun. I finally got mine squared away (knock on wood) after finding that I had a faulty scope that will be going back for repair. The gun does shoot some incredibly tight groups, and you are going really like the trigger, too.

Enjoy and good luck with it.

Great looking rifle Harold. They are truly great rifles no matter the configuration. Love the gray stock.
