Some little while ago I bought a new Tikka T3 Lite in .243. Sadly I thought I must have a stalking rifle with a moderator because every one else has got one.
Well I picked up my new Tikka which seemed rather short in the barrel but 'hay-ho'. The moderator came slightly after which was no problem.
When I put them together to be honest...........HATED IT
Never even wanted to shoot it, had to get rid of it. To make matters worse when I rung GMK, Yes its a special order now to get a rifle not threaded for a moderator and that order takes approx SIX months.
Well a bit of resurch on the Guntrader website found me a brand new .243 Tikka Hunter at Greefields of Salisbury. A VERY good deal was done today and I have traded my Tikka Lite and have now just completed and sent off my variation.
The point or rather the question is am I the only stalker/rifle shooter that hates moderators and feels that they ruin the looks of a classic style stalking rifle.
