    There is a solution..............

    SPORTSMATCH one-piece rings made in the UK at just 20 RRP. These are a functional and robust alternative to the proprietary 'Tikka Optilok 2-piece' set up.

    I've used both, and realised what a mug I was to swallow the manufacturer's hype. You can buy 4 sets of these for the price of the Tikka mounts.

    Scroll to the bottom of this page for the 1" Onepiece mounts I use on a Sako Action;

    I don't see why they wouldn't fit a Tikka 590, but you'd need to confirm this for yourself.

    Then there's something wrong. All mine fit. Contact Sportsmatch who are very helpful.

    Alternatively you can send them to me for free
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    Oh just noticed this and remembered that I picked up some steel bases with alloy 1" rings to fit the Tikka, just looked them out. Will get photos this weekend as am having a bit of clear out of stuff accumulated.

    you can get warne ones in 25mm to fit straight onto the action. or optilocs. however sako and tikka bases cant be swapped around, the rings for the optiloc's can but not the bases.
    i would just stick some burris 2 piece bases on there bob.

    then you can which ever weaver or picatinny rings for it you like. i have same bases on this m695 and prefer them to the optiloc's i have on my m595

    and best bit they can be used on m590,m595,m690,m695
    and tikka t3

    i would like a synthetic stock at some point for my 590 action jamie, so i can get this very nice delux one of for some work on it to get it back to its best, got red wood tip and a nice cup at the base of the pistol grip too.
