Hello THF,

Long-time listener, recent first-time poster. I am on the hunt for a Tikka T3x Superlite or Lite (pref the Superlite) chambered in .30-06 or .308. I know it is a long shot but I'm relatively patient and wanted to get it on THF's radar. Any help would be much appreciated!

Warm regards and happy hunting,
Jason in DFW

Unfortunately Euless G&A didn't have the Tikka. They were helpful and acknowledged it might be hard to track down what I'm looking for. I might have found a local shop that can buy or transfer the gun from Mississippi. We'll see.

if you're flexible on make/model, there's a guy with a nice kimber hunter in 30-06 with scope and rings. helluva combo.

right caliber and weight, but wrong make model. both are great rifles though.

good luck in your search.

I saw that, and am doing my research on the Kimber. I know it is a steal at that price.

Part of me just wants to keep my Rem 700, chop the barrel a couple inches (topic for another discussion), and call it a day.

if you're wanting to hunt the mountains, and every ounce counts, the Superlite or the Kimber are both excellent choices.

if you're hunting whitetails from a stand, then the 700 will do you just fine.

my $0.02.

Nailed it. I had a heavy bench stock on my 700 during my Alaskan black tail hunt. Big mistake. This is my do-all hunting rifle so I want to go back to the drawing board and have a rifle that does well in the mountains.

in that case, you've picked a near perfect rifle to chase.

the SL in 30-06 is a fantastic choice. several of my elk buddies hunt with Tikka SL's, and I've yet to see one that wasn't boringly* accurate.

* boring accurate - shoots damned near everything very well with not much effort.

Sportsman's Warehouse has them... if you can get them to ship from Mississippi.

I did see that gun but it is store inventory, not warehouse inventory, so they won't ship it FFL. Must be an in-store purchase. Thanks for thinking of me.

I have 3 Tikkas (243, 6.5, 308) & I don’t think there is a better gun for the money.

It was in the Mississippi store, but you are right... it didn't pull up on whse items to ship. It may be worth a call to that store?

I've gone that far with them and their corporate customer service, and they're unwilling to ship it. Thanks though!

I bought my 1st Tikka last year in T3x Superlite Stainless. No regrets. For a lite rifle it shoots great. Mine is a 7mm-08. Killed a big boar at just shy of 400 yrds 2 weeks ago.

I don’t know where your at but give Texas ranch outfitters in yantis a call.. They are a tikka dealer and I got my roughtek from them.. Good folks, bought a lot from them.. Gunbroker usually has a lot if you don’t find one local..

Didn't see a superlite but they did have a lite in 308. Just in case it will do.
