Just bought a Tikka T3, took a few weeks to get here from another gunshop but its here today.
this is the first chance i had to look at it.
the crown has a dink in it and a knock, not a problem as i can re-cut that. the thread is a little ruff as well
the issue i have is inside the end. It looks as if something has been hammered in the barrle and caused a burr in the rifling.
I have not shot it or anything, not even cleaned the bore yet.
The thread is 1/2 UNF and there is no proof mark on the end of barrel to say its been checked.
Am i being fussy or is this something to worry about.
thanks for look Gents.
