Whittakers is the best. I bought one of the blued rifles a few months ago, and it's a typical Tikka. Boringly accurate.

There's not very many better options that will produce equivalent results.

They also did a special run of 1:8 twist 22-250.

Whittaker's is good about getting the non-cataloged guns out of manufacturers that folks want!!!

If it came with I threaded barrel, then I'd probably be in.


It is far more important to be able to hit the target than it is to haggle over who makes a weapon or who pulls a trigger.

It's $50 to have it threaded, or you can get the CTR with a threaded, medium contour barrel, 10-round mag, and vertical grip stock for $800. IMHO, the CTR is the best value on the market for low/medium-budget precision shooting performance.

I feel the same way especially if you want a dual purpose tactical/hunting. At 7.5 lbs, it's easy to carry around.

An unethical shot is one you take, that you know you shouldn't.

Just a joke. But the bolt handle is on the wrong side!

Uncle Buzz, please just try one and you'll like it. Specifically, I suggest you get one in 223 with a 1:8 twist heavy barrel. You can give it a try and then sell it to me for 50% the price. You'll lose less than you will on those "high end" rifles and we'll both be very happy. bolt
