Thread: Tikka M595 action/barrel thread rate?

  1. #1

    Question Tikka M595 action/barrel thread rate?

    Dear all, can anyone tell me what the thread rate in a Tikka M595 action is?

    I have been offered a good quality barrel and cannot find out what the thread rate on M595 action is. I am considering the purchase of a M595 to customise.

    Regards, Simon

    Simon, the twist rate varies with the calibre. Tikka's website gives the following for the M595:-
    .243 = 1:10
    7mm-08 = 1:9.5
    .308 = 1:11
    Nice smooth action. It's a shame about the plastic bits, although I've never heard of them failing.

    Simon,

    Do you mean twist rate or do you want the thread tennon size?

    The thread tennon is 1"x16tpi Often measuring about .990"

    Dennis, In my bumbling way I think I probably did mean the thread tennon size/rate, but I am no engineer. Many thanks for giving me the answer, you are most kind.

    Redmist, thank you once again! I think i will be in touch with you in the near future

    Edit; The barrel i was offered, it turns out, was a krieger match barrel. The profile of the barrel is heavier than I want, so my friend will use it himself. It was the right thread rate though.

    What other factory barrels have .990" and 16tpi ? And is the m55 the same as the 595?
