    Tikka m65a

    Quick question. The pistol grip on these, what finish would you call it? It's not chequering as such, more like tiny dimples.
    Any ideas?

    Stippled! That's the one! Cheers Redmist. Loved you in Kick Ass 2 by the way

    That's definitely the effect of the finish i.e. stippled. However from memory, the one I had had a coating of some sort that produced the stippled effect. In any case it was very grippy. The later master sporters (595 and 695) had stocks that were stippled i.e. the wood was stippled rather than it being a coating.

    Cheers

    Not seen the ones with coating. The couple my local shop has in are definite stippling. Felt good in the hand, soft but grippy. Like it a lot
