Sent my Tikka T3 sporter in 6.5x55 to Derrick at Horizon Firearms for a face lift.
- Flute barrel and bolt
- chop barrel to 16.25 and thread.
- cerakote barrel and action tan and flutes black.

Before face lift



After. Need to get some low rings.. don't like how high my scope is

Looks awesome. Love the spiral flutes with contrasting colors.

Any idea how much weight it saves on a 20" barrel?
Horizon, what do you charge for fluting bolt, barrel, and coat?

Thanks.

Depends some on what type of flutes and what type of paint. Typically spiral is 200 the paint job is 200 and then fluting the bolt is 70 and painting the bolt is 30.

Depends how deep you do the flutes.
