OK... Long story shortened.... I have been hearing lots of great things about the Tikka T3 lite on 24hrcampfire forums and finally broke down and bought one for a "put it on the back of the 4 wheeler & ride 4 miles down the dirt road in the rain gun"..... I am a hard core Walnut & blue gun guy and the older the gun is I tend to like it better unless it is custom.... Well due to this I only had two guns that were stainless - synthetic... One is a 700VS Varmit gun in 308 and a 40X in 223 and neither one of those is a good "walking around" gun is you know what I mean..

So after breaking down, I bought one off of the internet for $569 that is synthetic & Stainless in 30-06. I put a new recoil pad on it and new tally rings and topped it off with a Leupold 4.5X14X40mm with 30mm tube & side focus.... I was going to adjust the trigger but did not after the factory trigger broke at 3lbs 1oz on the trigger pull gauge with no creap........

I had not had time to load up some rounds for it so I was not going to take it to the range today since I was checking the zero on my muzzleloader but I remembered I had an older box of factory ammo so I grabber it and headed out....

Well.... The best group of the day was 3/8 inch at 100 yards... and every group I shot was under 3/4 of an inch at 100 yards and this was with factory ammo..... I can not wait to see what this gun will do with a little handloading and bullet depth adjustment....

Anyway.... If you are looking for a new gun or just want another one I would recommend looking the Tikka T3 Lite...... I feel it is the best gun for the money on the market today....

I just read your post on 24Hr.

I have to get me one as well. Left handed SS Lite in 270 is what I'm looking at.

Where did you get yours? Budsgunshop?
