I picked a used t3 lite up yesterday, on inspection it is 1/2" UNF thread. Did the earlier ones come in without the barrel threaded?
Kind regards to all.

Yes, I also have an earlier one and it's been threaded 1/2 unf. Tikka still makes unthreaded versions but they aren't as common here. It will probably have a longer 22.4" barrel which I like. All the factory threaded ones are 20".

I think mine has 2007 proof marks.

Even now, the longer barrels, to special order are not threaded.

Not quite, the new super varmint range are just under 24" and threaded!
I've got two Super varmints that had to be threaded and have two more on order. They appear to have changed the spec since I ordered. The moderator that i bought to fit one of them, now has the wrong thread, it seems.
