Everyone seems to say that the old rifles are better than the new e.g. Tikka 595 are better than the T3.
How many people actually believe this or do you like me think it is more to do with the fact that they aren't mainstream any more and therefore harder to get. How many people have actually had any sort of problem with say a T3?
You are seeing more and more T3's as the base for custom rifles now and people seem to rate them, this would obviously not be the case if they were as bad as some people seem to think.
I have a .22-250 M595 but that is more from the point of view of that was what was around when i was getting my rifle than anything else. I had no idea what i was actually getting. It has never missed a beat and is as accurate as hell but i am under no impression that a new version would be less accurate.
