    thanks paul and yes ive got the same specs from tikka thats why i was asking about the threading it states a few calibres as being unthreaded but not the 6x5x55 so i was surprised when i found one not threaded ,,,,,hence me wondering on the length ,,,,incase it has been cut down at all , doug,

    Hi Doug,

    just looked again on the tech spec they come with or with out screw cutting has the one you looked at got a proof mark near the muzzle that may tell you something but when I had my 595 cut it was 100 including proofing but that was a while ago

    not seen it yet exept pics just feeling around ,as i say on the specs it lists the ones not threaded,,,, and 6x5 not on it,,,,its on the list as threaded, one lads getting back to me in morn with hes barrel length threaded so if mines shorter i will know its been cut, d

    You can order any T3 unthreaded - and there are a few floating around from when they were first imported, when threading was not standard.

    As said above, unthreaded from the factory will be 22"7/16.

    If it is uncut, I would pounce on it - it's usually a sign of a lightly used rifle.
