Tikka t3 tactical with a heavy profile 20" 1 in 8 twist barrel.

Slight modifications: re threaded to 5/8-24. I also put this in a ctr stock and installed the factory adjustable cheek piece. Happy to send the original stock along with it.

Scope is a gen 1 6-24 vortex viper pst, ffp with erb2c reticle, mil/mil.

Muzzle brake and arca rail not included.

$1300 OBO shipped to an ffl. Only trades would be for a custom action or barreled action in 6 or 6.5cm, preferably a zermatt origin. This is posted locally as well.

Price dropped to $1300.

Would consider separating, $800 for the rifle, $500 for the scope

I bought this rifle used so I'm not sure of the round count. It shoots better than I would expect out of a factory rifle.

How’s the trigger on the gun? And what’s she weigh without glass. Any trade options?

The trigger is on par with any Tikka triggers I've ever used, I've had 5 or 6 and they're all very nice. It's about 7.5 lbs. I'm looking to build a 6 or 6.5 creedmoor on a Bighorn origin so anything I can use towards that would interest me.

    What magazine(s) does this come with? CTR or the plastic single stack version?

    I only have the plastic magazine for it, but I do have the ctr bottom metal that will go with it so you could acquire a ctr 223 magazine

    I have an old Tikka Tactical 223 with 20in barrel. It is the only rifle I have owned that did not modify. They are tack drivers with the 1/8 twist barrel using 75 and/or 77 grain bullets. The only thing I did to it was put it into a KRG X-ray chassis so that it would feed long 77 grain bullets reliably with an MDT and/or AI magazine. It shoots just as accurately with the stock OEM stock or KRG chassis. The triggers are also great and if you replace the bolt handle with a Sterk, it is the cat's meow. You will not be disappointed.

    Thanks ratton! I'm hopeful I don't regret selling this one. My favorite rifle in my safe.
