i am after some information on a rifle that I have been offered its a tikka 695 deluxe in .270 at the moment I can not get to the rifle to see it my self. So I am going by what the dealer can tell me, and of course with the normal second hand dear “it had one careful owner never been used”. He did send me some photos and some information the best way I can describe the rifle looking at the photos is, as new condition there is not one mark that I can see on the wood and it looks to be of a good grade of walnut, it does have a stainless barrel I am not sure if they were produced with one or if it has had one fitted, it also comes with 30mm rings a wildcat mod and again I could see no scratches or marks on it. He has also had the bore checked by PRS and it was give a full bill of health, 2 boxes of ammunition. He did confirm that it was owned by an elderly gent who has given it up due to his age.
Now to the cut when did they stop making the 695?
Are they any good? Common faults problems?
What would one be worth as described?
