Having a sort out of my own personal rifles decided to move towards two rifles rather that a safe full which i dont use !

Tikka 590 308 bought as a doner but to be honest too good to break up un threaded £400.00

I would prefer face to face but could ship to your rfd at additional cost.

Hi twg1, what condition is the Tikka in? Thanks in advance.
It's in quite good nick, as I said in the original post, I bought it to turn into a 6 br but when I got it home, I thought it too goo to pull apart and left it in the safe but now my 6.5 is done its not worth keeping it.

I will try and get some pictures up later.

I only have put a couple of round through it to check it fired when I first got it and it hit the target then ! (coke can on its end at 75 meters ish) the extractor claw was chipped so that was changed for a new one. not shot it since that, was a while ago and its been in the safe since.

Good to meet you, pleased your happy with it.

I think its worth working on the stock , as you say the blueing is in good nick , its not done much work. The Tikka is as good metal work wise and the stock is very good.
