The Mags are different as well. Tika's are plastic 5 rounders and TRG's are steel 10 rounders that cost $200 per. Tika's are excellent, but I like my TRG better.sunp0015.jpg

From what I understand, they are pretty much the same. They're even made at the same factory with same tools and machines. Still, there are other differences than the bolt, generally Sakos are made with better attention to detail and are thought to be generally better rifles that Tikkas. Think of Tikka as an entry level Sako.

Just my 2 cents.

Okay. Here is a mystery that is NOT discussed by the production and magazine reporting public.

Both are NOW coming off basically the same line. Both are NOW basically the same finished rifle.

Here's what's different.

Tikka used to be independent, but were bought and now are a part of the Beretta family since 1988.

If you look, Tikka is more "hunter oriented". Their rifles are more hunter, more lightweight, less mounted sights and less scope mounts, on average.

The Sako is the more tactical, more pre-prepped line. Muzzle breaks,scope mounts, tactical calibers, plus the short throw bolt handle.

Both are cold hammer forged barrels. Many Tikka's are free floated, all the Sako's were that I looked at. Basically they are the same outside of looks.

The Tikka's are pretty; old world wood, the Sako's are more new world polymer/tactical but equally as impressive.

The "custom features" come down to what you want in YOUR rifle.

Hope that helps.

JD

I don't know if you were asking me??

I hit this thread as I had responded and got notice there was activity.

If you were asking for my opinion I would put both Tikka and Sako WELL above a Kimber production rifle.

I don't say that lightly or with malice. I have owned 3 Kimber handguns and I do like aspects of the company. A member here has a Kimber I built up and shot for a time before selling off.

The Kimber Rifle just isn't their bag of tricks. It's a production rifle with an impressive name behind it. Having said that, a ton of good gunsmiths can tune it for $300-$500 and make it shoot very well as is the case with most, generic, production guns.

If this question was not directed my way, sorry.

JD
