Re: Lightweight rifle build

Do a search on them for their accuracy out of the box smooth feeding and great adjustable trigger.

Re: Lightweight rifle build

I am in agreement I own several Tikkas and they are all shooters for sure. I have been eyeing the Tikka t3 super lite it seems on par to what u are looking for. I have handled one in Cabelas and they are LIGHT for sure... That will be my next rifle purchase.

Re: Lightweight rifle build

I've handled them as well. I can't like that stock at all. I'd have to look into replacing it. Does it have an actual recoil lug? Or is it sako like with one built in/recessed?

Re: Lightweight rifle build

on mine i never replaced the recoil lugs on the non magnums but i had them replaced on my 7mm and 300wm. I agree the stocks are not the greatest but they work and are light for sure. I mean i own lots of rifles but of the off the shelf variety you cant beat the tikkas for bang for your buck...

Well, I own 5 Tikka rifles and ALL shoot sub MOA. No load development and very light and easy to carry. Just about the perfect hunting rig out of the box.

Re: Lightweight rifle build

They sound very nice but I'll need to look into a new stock for it
