Does Tikka make a good rifle?
#1
I am thinking on going wild hog hunting in Fla. and would like a nice 308 to use. I found a couple Tikka rifles a decent price but know nothing about them. lease enlighten me on quality and accuracy and any common issues you may know of. Feel free to offer alternatives to this rifle. Thank you. das

I have no experience hog hunting, but from what I have seen, I'd personally use a lever rifle in .30-30 or .45-70. I feel like a lever gun can take a beating and it is quicker for follow up shots. That being said, I want to go hog hunting very badly.

As for Tikka rifles, I heard they're accurate but the composite stocks could be better. I looked into them a few years ago. From what I read, the composite stocks produced more recoil, but accuracy was spot on.

They are supposed to be good rifles. I don't remember seeing many bad things about them when reading. I was going to get one until I found a rem 700 5r.

I was going to get one as well. I have read bad things about stock, two piece bolt, plastic on the bolt. Never owned one.

I own Remington and savage and marlin. My next WI be Ruger American all weather.

Call the outfitter and see what they recommend.

Tikkas are awesome. You are not going to find a better action on any factory rifle.

The T3 lites are designed to be ultra light hunting rifles. If you don't like the stock, you can upgrade as Manners and other companies offer aftermarket stocks for Tikka.

My sister just started working for Beretta, so I'm curious what her employee discount would be on Tikka's.

I would not hesitate to purchase any Tikka/Sako.

I've owned two Tikka T3 lites in the past and they are very good factory rifles.
