hard to argue that!As a victim of the current tikka/beretta "customer service" repair relationship, I won't ever buy another tikka product again. Those of us who dump $2000 or more into bolt gun builds, when something breaks and takes 6+ months just to get it looked at, thats enough of a reason to not buy it. Who wants to roll the dice on having a repair take your build out for an entire season?
I agree with you on proven performance for the money, but time is really the only difference in that equation. I wont be buying an aero bolt gun when they first come out, but a year in or so, probably will pick one up.
