    Just click on the search button at the top of the page and type in Tikka T3 in the subject box and click search.

    You'll find pages of threads about T3's good and bad.

    It must be the most discussed rifle on the internet.

    You could do the same for mods. They raise similar numbers of posts.

    Best of luck. You could be reading for some time.

    i have a t3 stainless synthetic and it's a good rifle for the money. best bit of advice i could give is look at as many as you can and give the forend a good squeeze to see how stiff it is, as for some reason they are not all the same, when you find a reasonably stiff one (stock!) and the barrel is floated properly buy it.

    Buy the Tikka you want (Stainless or Chromoly)

    Throw away the standard stock - replace with a Robertson, get it bedded and you will have a very pleasant accurate rifle.

    Standard T3 Lite (stainless in 308, Robertson Composite - pillar bedded)

    A friend of mine and his wife have 4 T3s between them which i've had the pleasure of shooting at varying ranges over the last couple of years.

    I love the rifle, hence i've ordered one. What I don't like (by don't like I mean despise) is the crappy plastic magazines. Bearing in mind they've seen more use than a stalking rifle would (round count wise), but each one of them misfeeds usually around the 3rd round into a 5 round mag. Quite annoying.

    Hopefully someone will design a better mag for them soon (I know Roedale Precision have an AICS-type stock in development, hopefully it'll use the AI mags?)
