I know two people with them (.308 and .300wm) and they seem like excellent rifles. For a factory rifle, I think it's hard to do better for the price. There are a lot of good reviews on YouTube - I've yet to see negative commentary on them, especially considering how reasonable they are price wise. I'll probably end up buying one myself.Does anyone here have any experience with a Tikka T3? How is the fit and finish? Trigger? Accuracy? Thinking about picking one up in a wsm.
I think Mambamag makes a good metal magazine that is compatible with these…?Excellent rifles. Hard to beat for the price. Very well made, lightweight, accurate and reliable. Two minor weaknesses I would point out
1: The trigger guard is plastic, and can be broken. I've replaced 2 for customers, and they don't come cheap, about 140.00, as it includes the frame around the magazine well, and is all one molded piece.
2: The detachable magazine, when outside of the gun, is somewhat fragile, The thin plastic sides can be crushed or cracked if put under moderate stress. (Don't put one in your back pocket and sit down on it, it'll cost you about 70.00).
thanks for all the comebacks. I have been reading about it the archives. There are several companies making metal mags and also aluminum bottom metal. Even some with AICS detachable mags. I need to put one in my hands before I “pull the trigger “ pun intended.Love mine! My go to rifle since they came out. Note that all T-3s are long action, even if in a short action caliber. So going short saves no weight. Lots in archives.
