    Sako by Colt, actually a Tikka

    Interesting article I have come across. The Canadian Rangers are replacing their lee enfields with a Sako T3 made by Colt...

    Sounds like a typical public sector way to acquire a product at twice the cost of the commercially available standard product.

    They may have to look elsewhere!

    Colt Defense LLC have just filed for section 2 bankruptcy due to a cancelled military contract and a drop in sporting arms sales of 30%.

    Why don't they just use a standard tikka t3?

    Isn't Colt Canada a completely separate company?

    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    Because the standard T3 was designed as a sport rifle and not a military rifle. The new rifle should be far more durable and with a detachable 10 round magazine and alloy bottom "metal" rather than synthetic.

    Tikka makes T3 Tactical, just like
    Sigarms made the STR 970, based off the SHR 970.
    Sauer 3000
    FN Patrol Rifle, based off the Winchester Model 70
    Remington M24, built off the Model 700 long action.
    Beretta 501 Sniper, based off the Beretta 501 .308 hunting rifle ( mostly Sako ).
