Thread: Tikka T3 Super Varmint?

    Tikka T3 Super Varmint?

    Hi guys, looking at buying a Tikka T3 varmint/super varmint in .243. Have been reading around and seeing (mostly) positive feedback on these rifles. Basically, I am just wondering if there is much point in going for the super over the regular varmint for the extra money. Also, having had a look at a couple of synthetic tikka's, and not being hugely impressed by the furniture, I was wondering what after market stocks are available/recommended.

    I was originally looking at a Howa 1500 varmint in a Bell and Carlson Medalist stock, but am not sold on the action/quality (bolt feels a bit sloppy). Do you guys think the Tikka is worth the extra cash?

    tryed a howa its cheap and feels the same .
    tikka t3v all day if this was the only choice of two ,but hope your not gonner walk for miles as it is heavyman get a hardy g4 mod, my pals loves a 58vmax mine was in 308 and was a tack driver with 130 hp's i fitted a Robertson Composites G/HUNTER to both my tikkas in in 25-06 and the other was the 308 it made a good shooting rifle just a bit better to shot and bit longer in the stock.

    forgot to say i took off the tikka rail and fitted the sako TRG INTEGRAL 3 RING mounts to mine just cos i could as i used a long scope body and surported it better
