    What aday to buy a rifle unseen!!

    , April fool's day today then I Found a Tikka T3 lite 25.06 on Holts, sealed bid auction,So bid for it (not madly though) I just had the e mail from them for payment, here's hoping it's not a lemon , comes with a sling / scope & 40 factory rounds + spare mag.

    You did notice that the scope is a Swarovski 6x42 Nova?

    I imagine that you will do alright out of the purchase.

    That's a good deal, you won't go wrong with! The scope is worth at least 200!

    All dependent on serviceability of the rifle

    I've just had an invoice too for ammunition.

    The kick-in is the Commission + VAT on the hammer price so £350 (x 130%) becomes £455 ... plus any delivery charges.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    Not too painful, as long as the thing is accurate, with the spare mag £60?, scope that would be worth £150 minimum, 40 rounds factory £40? ... sling & swivels, Mounts? Reckon the rifle stands me around £120.00, should be collecting from a valuation day near me.

    I know of a Tikka 25.06 that shoots very well 1" or less at 100m think its a 595, been bore scoped and the dealer has said it has fire-cracking.
    Its 15 years old and the dealer has offered my mate £100 for it

    I don't trust the dealer as he said similar about my Sauer 202 and if I do my bit it also shoots 1" at 100m

    Anyone interested let me know asap as he is thinking of taking the part ex, and I think he is being ripped off !!!!
