Tikka rifles are made in same factory as Sako. They use same barrels but are not as fancy as Sakos. You won´t be dissapointed if you purchase one. Expect sub half MOA accuracy with Sierra 168gr or Lapua 167gr bullets and 43gr of Vihtavuori N150. That is receipt I use and I´m very satisfied --> .31" 5 shot groups @ 100m
Rifling twist is 1-11".

Roxy,

Which model are you looking at buying?

I am thinking of either the SPorter with the Target stock, or one of the Varminter models.

I handeled some of themat my local shop and found the quality most impressive, and the triggers are adjustable, but excellent right out of the box.

By the way, what kinda prices are ya looking at in your neck of the woods?
