Anyone have a Tikka "Super Lite"?

I'm wondering if anyone has one of the new Super Lites and can comment on the rifle weight. I read on other forums that they are 5.8 pounds, but I don't know if this is accurate. I have a blue T3 synthetic in 300 Win Mag, but wouldn't mind getting the SL with a lightweight scope for hunting the mountains and canyons.

I think that there are only 2 dealers for the Super Lite... Cabela's and Sportsman's Warehouse. We lost our local Sportsman's (now Wholesale Sports) and the nearest Cabela's is a bit of a drive from here. I think the SL was $750 in last month's Cabela's flyer.

For those that don't know, the Super Lite (if that's what its really called), is like a regular stainless synthetic, but with a fluted barrel.


Thanks,

Jason

I don't own a Super Lite. I own two Tikka Lite's and I am also interested in anyone that could provide 1st or 2nd hand opinion and comments on the performance of the Tikka Super Lite.

Probably aren't too many dedicated LRH's purchasing and using them though.

Good point. I figured if anyone would have one or be interested in them it would be in this forum. I'm having trouble finding info from any source. I may need to take a drive to Cabela's.

Re: Anyone have a Tikka "Super Lite"?

I'm curious too as I saw a rifle in American Rifleman that weighed 5.2# but it was like 2700.00, and some guys told me Tikkas was the leasty accurate rifle that was ever made in a factory. But I dont believe them as I dont think Sako(Beretta) would put out such a product.
