    Tikka 595/T3 comparison.

    Hi All,

    following on from the Tikka "to re-barrel or not" thread,
    I have a 595 in 243cal and have weighed the barrel, action and bolt together, at approx 5lb 4oz.
    Can anybody tell me what the T3 version weighs in at ?

    many thanks, Tedward.

    Around 6lbs for the plastic stocked versions.

    22.5-inch barrel T3 Lite ( non-magnum, as sold in the USA) is about 6 lbs 3 oz, for a 7mm-08, a little less for a .30-06, a little more for a .223 Rem, due to difference in chamber and bore sizes. If I remember correctly, from taking it off, the stock alone is about 28 ounces.

    Many thanks Southern,
    so if my maths is right, a barrelled T3 action plus bolt, will weigh in the region of 4lb 8oz, - approx 3/4lb lighter than the equivalent 595.
    All those in agreement say "Aye",
    cheers, Tedward.

    Im not quite so sure you may want to check out Tikkas own specs, i say this because the T3 action is longer and slightly thicker then the 595, so with the equivalent barrel the T3 will be heavier.

    I'll throw the T3 bits on the scales tomorrow if I don't forget. have a 202 22-250 lying around that we use to bed.
    My guess is 2-2.2kg with mag and plastic bottom.

    Ideal !
    - many thanks Edi, you're a star ! - dont forget to include the bolt,
    cheers, Tedward.

    20" 22-250, bolt and trigger action screws = 1950 grams ~ 4.23lbs (no rail)

    Including mag and plastic trigger guard total = 2025 grams. ~4.45lbs

    4" of sporter barrel cut off a 24" barrel weighed around 130 grams.

    Thanks for taking the time out to do that Edi - very much appreciated !
    - there truly is no substitute for fact.
    Now I only have to decide which way to go on the evidence provided,
