Well after seeing a bunch of great reviews on the Tikka T3 on here I finally decided that it's time to buy one. It's chambered in .243 and I put a 2.5-10x42 Nikon Monarch on top with some weaver rings I had laying around. I can't wait to go to the range and see how it'll shoot! in the future I plan to rebarrel it to a 260 or 7mm-08, get a new stock for it, buy better glass and rings, etc. but for now I think it'll work

Haven't seen a Tikka yet that wouldn't "work" as it came from the factory and more accurate than most of the shooters that buy them. All that other stuff is for making it exactly what you want be it comfort, looks, caliber or accuracy. Nice rifle.

You won't be disappointed. They're ugly but shoot great.

I thought this was about an Android phone. Is Tikka the darkside? Nice setup.
