    I got a chance to get a Tikka LSA 55 real cheap. I want to use it as a donor action. GAP does not do rebarrells on Tikka's. Anyone know of a good smith who does?

    I dont know about the LSA 55 but the current T3 and previous 590/595 and 690/695 are in fact a 1"(.992"-.995" actually) x 16 tpi 60 degree thread form.

    A much shorter list is who cannot do metric threads. No big deal to rebarrel a Tikka.

    I talked to Lilja about a barrel, and they gave me a name of a smith in Plains MT. GAP reccomended Short Action Customs LLC in Ohio.
