  • Tikka T3 CTR: Capable, Compact and Accurate
    The T3 CTR features a cocking indicator that is both visual and tactile as it protrudes from under the rear of the bolt to tell the operator the rifle is cocked. The rifle cocks when the bolt handle is lifted. The two-po...sition safety falls under the thumb of a right-handed shooter and, when pressed rearward, locks both the trigger and bolt. The bolt knob is large and made of polymer. It is slick and easily palmed, which is a feature I like on a bolt-action rifle. The bolt handle can also be removed. The bolt uses a spring-loaded plunger ejector similar to a Sako extractor. The trigger is another stellar feature on the CTR. The pulled weight averaged 2.9 pounds—a crisp 2.9 pounds with no creep. If that does not suit you, then you can adjust the trigger by removing the barreled action from the stock. The adjustment range is two to four pounds. I found the factory-set pull weight pleasant and left well enough alone. It is a single stage that is wide with serrations, so your finger can easily grip it bare handed or gloved. The 20-inch barrel is cold-hammer forged with semi-heavy contour. The muzzle is threaded with 5/8×24-inch threads, so it is compatible with U.S. standard unit components—suppressors, flash hiders, muzzle brakes, etc. The threads are protected with a threaded cap, and the muzzle has an 11-degree crown. All metal work sports a non-reflective, matte black finish that is well executed. In two words, I found it accurate and capable. It balanced well with the heavy contour barrel and was light enough to be used for deer hunting or setting up for coyotes. more

  • Tikka T3x CTR Review and Custom Build
    Tikka T3X CTR is meant to be a ‘Goldilocks’ rifle between a big heavy long range rifle and a lightweight hunter. Anyone wanting a solid entry level rifle so they can get into long range shooting. Would make a great b...udget rifle if wanting to get into PRS or any other tactical shooting events. Stock ergonomics are not ideal for some. My magazines required very slight modification to work properly. Groups can open up when approaching 10 rounds if barrel is not allowed to cool, more on this later. The smoothness of the bolt and crispness of the trigger cannot be understated. Accuracy is top notch and overall rifle weight can be kept very reasonable as long as you don’t dress it up with a heavy scope. more

  • Tikka T3x CTR in .308 Winchester - in depth rifle review
    The Tikka T3 CTR Tikka barrels are cold hammer forged and have consistently shown good performances to withstand the company’s three-shot MOA, which is guaranteed ‘from the box’. This stainless version starts out a...t the crown at a 16x1mm metric thread for a brake or sound moderator. The stock fore-end shows a sling stud and supports the barrel with adequate stiffness. The action shows Tikka’s characteristic ‘radiused octagon’ shape which fits snugly with no apparent bedding stress into the inlet. The steel recoil lug mates with a rebate in the base of the action, adjacent to the stock’s forward T25 action screw; this is easily torqued into position for repeatable return to zero whenever strip-down maintenance is needed. Tikka triggers need little introduction and when inspected have the look of precision engineering, with all components machined from billets of steel and aluminium. A minimally curved 7mm aluminium blade carries longitudinal grooves for grip, all presented within a spacious trigger guard at a comfortable length from the stock’s grip. Single-stage pull is predictable and can be user-adjusted from 1,000-2,000g (2.2-4.4lbs). A single set unit is optional, but I don’t really see the need. It is pretty much as crisp as you can require yet the tiniest amount of creep is detectable, and 3mm of overtravel after break does seem to highlight it as a great trigger (although it’s not quite as magical as one or two I might mention, I’d still give it a nine out of 10!). Rapid firing is easily available, with Tikka seeming to have found the magical compromise between ultimate bolt tolerances and speed of operation. more

  • Tikka T3X Review
    This rifle quickly developing a reputation for remarkable accuracy and overall rifle excellence. The Tikka T3X to be a delight to shoot. For starters, it was compact and lightweight, perfect for those long days in the fi...eld. Similarly, it had such a smooth action, especially considering it’s a budget-gun. Furthermore, although I was amazed by the trigger, my new buddy told me he added a trigger spring from Ernie’s. Nevertheless, he said the trigger was impressive out of the box and that he just wanted a lighter pull. All of these great qualities combine to offer their guaranteed 1 MOA accuracy (or better) right out of the box. This Tikka model is loaded with features which make it the ultimate long-range rifle that is a true pleasure to shoot. They outfitted these bolt-actions with a pretty innovate fore-end with QD mounting, interchangeable interface, and a 13.5” M-LOK system. Moving on to the chassis, they gave the TAC A1 a sweet foldable AR stock, ergonomic AR pistol grip, and full aluminum bedding. To top it all off, it also features an adjustable double-stage trigger. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the extraordinary rear stock which is packed with modular features. In addition to a QD rear mount and monopod attachment point, the machined aluminum frame comes with an ultra-adjustable cheek piece and soft and adjustable recoil pad. more

    Amazing Rifle
    I purchased this rifle in November 2017. Mounted a Vortex Viper HS 6-24 on it and zeroed at 100 yards with 140 Grain Hornady ELD-M factory ammunition. I took out the rifle out a second time using reloaded Hornady ELD-M, ...SST and ELD-X. I managed to shoot a .295 MOA group with a 140 grain Hornady ELD-Mat 100 yards. Looking forward to shooting this rifle at 500 yards. The shorter barrel length does not appear to affect accuracy. The reloaded 123 grain Hornady and Sierra also performed great. more

    CTR 24" Barrel
    Absolutely a flawless gun! I'm running a cheap 4-16x40 Bushnell Banner scope (waiting for my Vortex PST Gen II) and I am easily shooting MOA at 100 yards! The feel of the gun is incredible along with the trigger, factory... light and crisp! I was originally going to order a custom 6.5 Creedmoor, instead opted for a cheaper route, and so happy I did, seriously shoots like a custom rifle! Tikka you did it again, high quality rifles! more

    Initial Review - Part 1
    I purchased this rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor, added a Nikon Monarch 3 4-16x42 scope, bore-sighted with a laser sight, adjusted the length of pull by removing one of the included spacers, adjusted the trigger to just under 2 l...bs, disassembled & performed an initial cleaning inside and out. more

    Impressive rifle
    Shooting 168 factory match ammo the first four rounds grouped around four inches. The next three around two inches. The next two under an inch. Then the next eight clover leafed just over 1/2 inch. Bore scoping shows a b...eautiful smooth finish inside the barrel. Action is Tikka smooth. Recoil pad is hard which means I bought aftermarket replacement. Put Vortex 6x24 FFP on it and wow. Final touch was a bolt rifle muzzle brake which screwed onto threaded 20 inch barrel.. It is compact, tactical, and putting up 1/2 inch groups with factory match ammo. I can't wait to see what my hand loads can do. more
