Just finished rebarreling Tika 595

The below Tika 595 will be shot both Cross the Course and Long Range Prone with Irons. It has been rebarreled with a 28" Broughton, 1:8, 5C, chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor. Should be a fun gun to shoot.

Re: Just finished rebarreling Tika 595

How does the creedmor cartridge function in the 595 magazines? I have a M595 in 22-250 that can only last a couple more prairie dog shoots
then its on to something bigger. I was thinking of a .260 but you got me thinking now...

I never considered this before till I looked at your pics, but does the 595 action have a recoil lug??

The 6.5 Creedmore works well in the M595 magazine.

The M595 has a protrusion around the front action screw that fits in a mating receiver in the stock. This acts as a recoil lug. If you look at the pictures posted you will see what i am talking about.

Sorry for the delay in replying I havebeen so busy I have not followed up with many post.

Re: Just finished rebarreling Tika 595

That "recoil lug" must be similar to the principle used in the T3's?? Is there much problem with bedding these action?

Did you have to do much work truing the action... Don't mean to hi-jack your thread, but I'm curious how satisfied you are with the tikka for a custom project?

later, Mark.

The T-3 has a metal block that engages the action and stock.

Good questions, Britz. There are getting to be so many of the tikka actions out there now (I have 2 in my safe at home)

The action in the photo was pretty straight. I just rebarreled it.
