Re: Right Out Of The Box----

Have you guys ever heard of tikka. They are owned by Sako and are probably the best out of the box gun you will ever have the pleasure to shoot. Literally stick a scope on and load up and it is ready for anything you can throw at it.

Tikka by far the best out of the box rifle there is.

I would have to agree. I own two tikkas and both shoot 1/2 inch out of the box so easy to load for. they are just simple and work. on a recent goat kull I shot 125 goats with 130 shots in a week. had no jams no mis feeds no problems what so ever. only misses were human error

More than a year has gone by on this poll. At this time, it seems there is a very clear winner, by a 2-1 margin over any other single maker.

this......Tikka is the most impressive out of the box......my Tikka's pull .5" at 100yds with factory ammo when I do my part
