Just popped back to see if you had sold it yet. Can't believe it is still on here. The wood alone makes it special. You rarely get figure like that from a 'production' rifle. I think it's beautiful. I want it! But I've already got a Tikka in this caliber and can't really justify another, but it's still nice to pop over to your post now and again to look. Great gun.

You said it is a 'post-64' gun, but later models went back to 'controlled-round-feed'. Is this a push feed or CRF? I'm just curious so probably others are, too. I like both (they all work fine) but some prefer one over the other.

I actualy really like the gun. I bought it because it is beautiful. I guess I really don't have to sell it. I just don't think I'll ever use it much so it's just sitting in the safe looking pretty when someone else might get some use out of it.

To answer your question, I believe it is a control round feed.

It is beautiful. I'd actually hate to take it hunting and damage it in anyway. I'd want to put it in an illuminated Plexiglas box and just gaze upon it as I had a cigar and Blue Moon after a great day hunting with some other 'beater' of a gun.

I think control round feed (CRF) would be preferred in a 'dangerous game' caliber such as this gun has, so that's a plus. Someone will see this gun soon and won't be able to live without it.

I sure love me some Blue Moon, a good cigar and maybe even a shot or two of some good burbon after a great day of hunting with any weapon.

Thanks for the conversation. Have a good night my friend :)
