Hello Tiny,

I have a T3 Lite in .243, factory threaded and a T3 Tacticle in .308, can't fault them. The only problem I see for you is that ALL Tikka rifles come factory threaded with a M14-1 thread, accept the T3 Tacticle, it has a M18-1 Thread, why they started doing this I dont know.
I guess that your T8 will be 1/2UNF?

You could try and order a T3 unthreaded, but you will be waiting some time I feel. Other option is to order what you want then get it re threaded and proofed.....

For your info, I have 2 Wildcat Predator 8 mods, one on each rifle, I changed one rifle in Jan (Steyr for Tikka) and the threads were different, the bonus was I just needed to order the different threaded bush (1/4 the cost of a new moderator) reassemble it and away I went, ready to use.

I am extremely happy with the rifles, wouldn't change them unless the A7 Got imported......................

The Tikka does come threaded for t8,as I have just bought that very set up.
It's not available screw cut in left hand, as to why, I can only imagine :rolleyes:
