This Tikka T3X super varmint has been upgraded with a MDT HS3 tactical chassis system, fully adjustable butt, tactical bolt handle, bolt shroud, extra picatinney rails and has been cerakoted to maintain the tactical appearance. It is in superb condition with an accurate round count of only 264 rounds. I assembled this rifle to maximise its performance, add a 10rd magazine capacity and to compete in the McQueens competitions at Bisley. As one would expect is a extremely accurate and completely reliable. It has a 20” barrel, with a 1 in 8 twist rate and threaded muzzle, so permitting long range shooting if required. Due to the rifles nearly new condition, the rifle is unmarked and has been inspected and serviced only.
Metal work is as new and black cerakote is 100% with no damage. Receiver markings are limited serial number, company logo, proof marks and inspectors stamps. There is no wear to the receiver and the bolt cycles smoothly without any excess movement. The receiver is fitted with a 0 Moa scope base and the Tikka trigger unit is single pull with a fine crisp release at 2.5lb.
The bolt has been inspected and function checked only. Bolt face is excellent and unmarked, The bolt head has the traditional Tikka extractor and ejector and ejects empty cases very effectively. Bolt is fitted with a tactical bolt knob and shroud.
The barrel is a heavy varmint profile barrel with a perfect bore. The muzzle is threaded and fitted with a thread protector should the user want to fit a muzzle break or moderator. Barrel length is 20” with a twist rate of 1 in 8 and a 11 degree inverted crown.
The Tikka polymer sporting stock has been replaced by a MDT aluminium tactical chassis system with dark earth skins, AR15 pistol grip and a picatinney bipod rail. It is a superb design that supports a MDT 10rd magazine that cycles without fault. The butt assembly is fully adjustable for height, length and is fitted with an extra picatinney rail for a monopod. Should the user wish, the butt assembly can be replaced with any AR15 compatible butt assembly.
