Tika

Recommended Posts

Anyone out there have a Tika T3X Lite/Superlite? A friend won a .243 T3X Superlite in a gun raffle this weekend and offered it to me for $500. Seems like a screaming deal given I'll need a smaller caliber gun when the boys get older, but I don't know anything about Tika other than they were bought by Sako. Quick searching on the internet has highlighted: 3 Shot MOA accuracy guarantee, detachable mag, good triggers, very light weight... What am I missing?

If it's blued and black stock you are $200 to the good out of the box. You can't go wrong with this gun.

I won one in 7mm08 but have not shot it yet.  I think 500 is a great price.

looked at an 30-06 on clearance and that was near 700.  Didnt buy it cause i didnt like the safety .  Otherwise the gun felt awesome.  That seems like a great deal. 

Not the biggest fan of two stage safeties. I'll have to take a look at it when I see it in person. Thanks for the heads up :)

for me it was in a weird spot and operation wasnt smooth.  Felt like i would be fumbling with it at the moment of truth.  Which sucked cause i really liked the gun otherwise and wanted to get it.  But it might not bother others.  I actually bought a "lesser" gun because of that.

Tikkas are ok... I've had two. Personally, I'd rather have the real thing... Sako. I'd offer up 4 large and see if he bites.

I have a T3X Stainless Lite in .308.  Absolutely love it.  Accurate, lightweight, smooth action and great balance.  Also batting 1.000 on 1-shot kills.  Sounds like you're getting a deal, but that wouldn't stop me from starting at a lower price so you have money left for an optic and rings.

I shot one last year at the club range that belonged to another member. We traded rifles for a few shots. Was chambered in 270. I liked it very much and it shot great. 

A bit different from my Sako, feel wise, but still VERY nice. It grouped as well as mine too at  117 yards.

Well worth it, even if you pay the full $500 I think.

That's a good price. I'll leave it at that. Even if you don't like it and sell it next year, you won't get hurt.
