TIKKA T3 - REDEFINING YOUR EXPECTATIONS OF A RIFLE.
The principle behind Tikka rifles is bold: with modern technology, there is no excuse for not delivering hunters the features they desire most in a rifle at a modest price. So the engineers at Sako in Finland went to work and the result is truly the finest production rifle available to the hunter. Tikka T3 rifles incorporate a silky smooth action, a crisp, adjustable trigger, a sleek, attractive design and a truly unbeatable price. But most importantly, each one of these rifles only leaves Finland after grouping three shots under one-inch at 100 m, thus making them an industry benchmark for out-of-the-box accuracy. Capitalizing on Sako`s long gun making traditions, Tikka T3 has managed to combine modern technology with tradition and craftsmanship to meet the requirements of modern hunters. Tikka T3 rifles are manufactured by Sako in Riihimäki, Finland.
Cold hammer-forged Sako precision barrel of high-grade stainless steel or Cr-Mo alloy. Free-floating in models with wooden stock. Thread-fastened rigidly to the receiver for safety and accuracy. Hand crowned.
Light but solid T3 TrueBody design of high grade walnut or fiberglass-reinforced Co-polymer polypropylene featuring palm swell. Recoil pad system with spacers provide adjustability in length of pull. Carefully designed checkered patterns on grip areas for added comfort and firm grip. Sling swivels as standard.
Designed for accuracy, reliability and easy service. Extremely rigid action with a two locking lug T3 bolt. The bolt features a spring-loaded plunger ejector and a removable bolt handle, with 70° opening angle leaving ample room between optics and hand. One of the smoothest action on the market.
