Tikka T3 Super Varmint
 
I had been looking for my first centerfire rifle for a couple of months now and finally found one that I liked and was in my budget range. I was already decided on buying one of the Weatherby Vanguard heavy barrel models, but my LGS didn't have any in stock. Instead I bought a used Tikka T3 Super Varmint. The previous owner had it only for a month before trading it in for a T3 Sporter, so the gunīs practically new and the shop gave it the same warranty as for a brand new gun. The barrel was already threaded by the previous owner and came with a Noise Stopper supressor and Sako Optilock weaver rings. I paid couple hundred less for the whole package than what a new Super Varmint would have cost, so Iīm very happy with my purchase. Now Iīll just have to wait for my next paycheck to buy a decent scope... :cool:

Here are a few pics. Iīll post more pics and a range report when I get the scope.

Edit: Caliber is .308Win

Very nice rifle.Those guns do shoot very accurate.

I wanted to buy a LH Tikka Varmint-25/06,but Beretta-USA wouldn't import it for me.
They first told me that Tikka didn't make it,and when I showed them that they did,they said they wouldn't import it to the states for me.

Thatīs strange, did they give any specific reason why they wouldnīt import it?

Oh they had a bunch of B.S. made up reasons,but all it come down to was someone at Beretta-USA is just too lazy to make a phone call and custom order a rifle for a customer.
Therefore,none of Beretta-USA's companies will every see a dime of my money.

Tx, contact CZ USA, they will custom make a rifle for your, on a true Mauser action.

Thatīs just disgusting customer service :mad: Iīll definitely mention this to the CEO of Sako when I see him (heīs a friend of my mothers or something like that).

Got my scope for the Tikka, Sightron SIII 6-24x50 with Mil-dot reticle. Iīve actually sighted it in already but didnīt have the camera with me. Iīll post a range report next time I go to the range.
