Thread: Tikka 685 300 Win Mag

  1. #1

    Tikka 685 300 Win Mag

    Tikka 658 actioned 300 Win Mag (Wood and Blue)

    This model action is the precursor to the M695 long action and has an external bolt collar that locks into the receiver and creates an extremely smooth bolt throw
    15-17mm integral dovetail with front recoil pin notch
    3 shot single stack steel magazine
    Very nice factory adjustable trigger - currently set around 1.75-2lb pull

    Very nicely figured walnut stock with Rosewood fore-end, Roll over cheek piece nice sized palm swell and Monte Carlo grip- regularly re-oiled and hand rubbed with Phillips Walnut Preparation - Shows usual signs of use, few scratches/little dings/marks in chequering
    QR slings studs - front is through bolt version
    Upgraded Pachmayer White Line Recoil pad - approx

    Flat based receiver makes it an easy customisation into a new stock more suitable to range work.
    This one mounts well and would make a great driven game rifle as well as having proved itself

    Sporter profile Barrel Screwcut 14x1 with discreet/smooth thread protector (J Russell)
    shows usual signs of reflex moderator blue removal, easily sorted if required
    Barrel approx 1-1.5" shorter than OEM due to removal or previous 1/2" UNF thread and recrowning (J Russell)

    Custom fore-end mounted Picatinny rail with Integral Parker Hale/Versapod spike and sling stud
    Versapod spike unscrews if you want to use a Rail Atlas or similar pod

    Shot count is unknown

    has shown excellent accuracy to date (below)

    I've seen this rifle in action. Shoots very well as target above testifies, but that is not a one off - I have watched Ed shoot several like that. I haven't shot it myself - roll over cheek pieces are not that comfortable for a left handed like myself.
