I should be in the market for a new left handed rifle around April. I was settled on buying a Tikka T3 in either 6.5x55 or .308. (This is not a calibre debate, really)
Whilst handling new Tikka lite and hunter versions in my local I noticed a lh Tikka 595 in .22-250. The owner told me it was shot out and would find out what he'd let me have it for.
I am estimating that the cost of re-barreling the old action and tidying the stock will cost as much as buying a T3 Lite or Hunter new.
Which is the better action?
What are the benefits of re-barreling an old action over buying new,if any?
Your help is appreciated.
