Second-hand Tikka M65A - Shooting UK

If you haven't already seen this it's well worth reading. Most people haven't seen the M65A as it wasn't ever on general sale but a few have appeared on the secondhand market.

It's an odd looking hybrid of the M55 & M65, and quite unlike either. The M65A uses the M55 5-shot single stack magazine so this is the one you're after. You'll notice from yours that it's pressed steel and very strong.

The M65 is a longer & stronger action for .30/06 & magnum caridges (+ .308 too!). The M65 stock is broached for a broader magazine well, which is fitted with a 5-shot (or 4-shot magnum) staggered box magazine.

Apologies for the squashed up text. It's the encrypted browser I'm using - not me or the SD site

Thanks for the acknowledgment as most don't bother. ;) :p

Post if you have any luck, or not. There've been quite a few posts from owners of early Tikka's looking for spare magazines.

have found a dealer in Finland that does all sorts of magazines ,web address is defendor.eu .he has a shed load of stuff ,
 
There is a guy I know here in Australia who makes them up to 10 shot that I have seen. Very good work too. I have an M55 17 rem and while looking for mags found his product.

BTW, I am also looking for an M65A rifle in good+ condition if anyone knows of where/who
