Purdy! I didn't realize the wood stock on the Forest model had that "custom" wood look.

Beautiful wood -- it makes the high price more understandable.

Let us know if it smacks your jaw as some people have reported.

Nice piece of furniture on that rifle. Congrats!

Do they use the X-tra grain technology that basically makes semi good wood look excellent and it's super hard to tell that it's enhanced? Regardless, that is a beautiful stock.

Been interested in a Forest model, you think the barrel is thick enough to have threaded?

Some suppressor companies have a 9/16 thread suppressor QD that is perfect for those thin Tikka barrels.

Just thread it 1/2” and put a 5/8” adapter on

The rifle shot great. No problem with recoil or the raised cheek piece. It’s a keeper

Beautiful stock on a very fine rifle. I have had and stupidly sold a Tikka in .243 loved it but a friends son needed it more than me. Last week I used a suppressed Tikka in 6.5 Creed to take a doe at distance now I am in the market for another Tikka.

I have a 700 BDL and I love it, but that stock is hum-dinger, cant beat the look of nice wood.

Was very surprised when I opened the box. Not sure all Forest have this look.
