    For Sale is a custom Tikka T3 Varmint Stainless built by Benchmark Barrels in WA.

    Here is the rifle spec:

    Benchmark Barrels 26" SS 1-8 Twist. Threaded 5/8 x 24 for brake or suppressor.
    Trigger tuned to a crisp 1.5 lb.
    EGW 20 MOA scope base
    Limbsaver pad installed
    Comes with correctly head spaced blued Tikka take-off barrel chambered in 22-250 in case you want to go varmint hunting.
    Rifle weight is approximately 9.5 lbs.
    As you can see from the pics I have 85 rounds of 130 gr VLD ammo and 5 pieces of brass.

    Rifle is in excellent condition with 200 rounds down the barrel.

    Oops! I forgot to post a sale price and reason for selling... Guys to be honest I really want to keep this but I need to put some glass on my new Rbros custom and the last two rifles I've bought are chambered in the other 6.5....as in Creedmoor. So this is one is on the chopping block. So if you have a Nightforce NXS for trade that is basically what I'm selling this to acquire.

    Sale Price is $1300.

    I do not have reloading dies for this rifle. I can provide pics of the 22-250 barrel but its just a bone stock factory blued Tikka barrel that I haven't fired.

    Thanks,

    John

    What kind of recoil lug does it have? standard like a tikka or has it been updated with something else? Pics?

    Huck-

    It has the factory Tikka recoil lug, it is unaltered. You probably already know that Sako/Tikka have a unique system.....there is a great thread with pics here on LRH that shows/explains it much better than I can.

    And the first page of this thread has several pics of my rifle, if you want more from different angles or close-ups I will gladly provide them to an email address.

    I just got back from a week of shooting out in Eastern Montana and I took this rifle but didn't shoot it at all. So I still have all of the ammo and brass shown in the pics but I will sweeten the deal and include a bipod and a Triad stock pack. I can provide pics of everything to anybody interested.

    I got lots of awesome trade offers while I was gone shooting and I'd like some of them to pan out....but until then I'm motivated to sell cause it was an expensive trip to Montana!

    I've had a bunch of Tikkas so I am very familiar with the factory lug. I just wasn't sure if the same system was used with a barrel swap. So did your smith mill out the barrel a little for the lug to drop into?
