Default The Tikka Picture Thread

Since we are finally seeing more and more of these fine rifles around, why not let these Finnish beauties have their own porn thread?

Old or new, lets see your Tikkas!

Tikka M595 Master Sporter in 6.5x47mm Lapua

I'll play

My 595 in 7-08, my current long range tactical competition rifle



My 695 in 6.5x55. My first (semi custom) tactical long range rifle. Now it sports iron sights and is used in Palma/prone matches



Some fast bolt work on steel turkey silhouettes at 385 meters with the 695

I should be picking my .308 stainless T3 Lite later today. Won't be much to look at except for the big scope with DNZ mount but will put up pics Friday.

I'm searching for places that make/sell stocks for T3's. I would really like to get something different along the lines of what you guys have but maybe in synthetic instead.

Manners, KRG, and a few others will make you a Tikka T3 stock. MTGuns and Chipley Arms (contact BigBamBoo on here) seem to be the best California-based options for Tikka gunsmithing (If I have forgotten someone else, speak up!). I am not familiar with any synthetic versions of the Master Sporter stock though.


Come on gentlemen, I know of several that have posted their Tikkas before! Get them in here/

Ok, ok....here are mine. Both present and past. If your a liberal, anti-hunter, type...DO NOT LOOK if dead varmints bother you....or at least keep your comments to yourself.

Top to bottom: Custom built 6.5x47 Lapua, RARE 24" barreled (no longer offered in USA) Tikka T3 Tactical, Tikka T3 Lite .223 with modified bottom metal to accept AI mags, Tikka T3 Lite .243 with 16 1/2" barrel and Vias muzzle brake.

And you huys with your Master Sporters,etc.....NICE! One of these days I will hope to own one.

I decided to stipple the Tikka Bolt Action rifle. It grips much better now.
No more slippery grips.

MT Guns in Santa Barbara has them every once and a while. That is where I found mine last year.

After looking back at Pthfndr's descriptions of his Tikkas, I have to say, there something awesome about "tactical" wood stocked rifles!

Have no idea how crappy the pic actually is because I'm on a netbook. My goal is at some point the rifle will not look anything at all like it does now.

I still have more fitting to do to the cheek weld, as it's a bit high. They didn't have a 1/2" like I wanted so I'm fitting a 3/4" to the height I want.

Hey Rudy,

I like those stocks they have on that site.

They say the Magpul won't work without modding it. Can't that tube be swapped with an AR tube?

I believe so. The Ace folder I used to convert it to a folder are AR15 parts, so I would think that the buffer tube can be replaced with either a six position or rifle length tube to accommodate what ever stock you would want to use.

Have any of you guys had any dealings with Helmick Arms?

Good, bad ugly?

I had forgotten this thread!

I have never heard of Helmick until you mentioned them. It looks like they specialize in wood laminate stocks for hunting, varmint, tactical, and F-Class. Their prices are pretty low, but my Googling only comes up with questions similar to yours. Very interesting...

For some great Tikka mods check out http://www.webshop.roedale.de/index....f37a5f9a33e9f8Roedale Precision. Since they are a Euro outfit, you get killed on the exchange rate. But their stick are nice looking.

They also make an aluminum replacement for the bolt shroud that is reasonably priced.

There is also Tikka Performance and Kenetic Research Group that make or sell products to improve or modify your Tikkas.

I'm currently debating what tikka to, so far it's one of the hunters and I'm debating if I should get it in 7mm or not. Using it for pigs and deer. Any suggestions

Can't go wrong with the 6.5x55 as it has a storied reputation. With that being said, the shooter is most likely more important than the caliber. I have a Swedish Mauser in 6.5x55 and I will never sell it. It is the most incredibly accurate bolt action, antique, curio relic, or modern, that I have ever shot. I am very tempted in getting a Tikka Stainless in the same caliber.

Here is my Eliseo T3 build with Proof Research barrel. This was lovingly smithed by Marc Soulie of Spartan Precision Rifles...his attention to detail is other worldly.
