    Tikka M695

    I've just bought a second hand tikka m695. Seems spot on. What's the general opinion?
    Cheers

    Im a big fan of older tikkas I have'2 one in 6mmbr and the other in a 20 tac, great actions, and years ago when I went stalking in Scotland I used a tikka 270. Great rifle and action but I don't like the 270 calibre,

    Good choice and I hope it lasts you years,

    superb rifles. had a number of m595 short action tikka's and two m695 long action tikka's. the one was a m695 stainless synthetic in 270. shot well. superb calibre.
    got a m695 stainless laminate in 25/06 now. again superb calibre and rifle.

    laminate stock is very nice with the stainless action and barrel. shoots superb also

    Bought a 695 new in 25.06 a few years ago now. Still used almost weekly as its a cracking rifle to shoot, you won't be disappointed.

    I have a 695 thats been worked on by Redmist, it was a 25-06 but is now 275 Rigby chambered (7x57), it shoots very well, with loads from 140 - 165 Gn into less than .5" at 100m , cold bore shot. Fallow hate it, pigs like it even less. Me, I love it.

    Good fortune with yours, it will do you well, I'm sure.

    You did the right thing buying it . Got a s/s in 6.5 x55 and put it in a boyds camo green stock . Shoots same hole on good days if their is no piolet error
    If its hit its history / If its missed its a mystery

    A gun is always loaded .A mule always kicks

    All the older Tikkas are excellent, I've built a good few on the actions now and they are still tight as the day they were made.
