I know they had a 20" option for the old T3s, maybe even a threaded 20". I am correct in thinking this? The exact gun I want is a t3 varmint with a 20" 1:8 in 223. Does anyone know if they still make a 20" and if threading is an option? All I see is the 23.7" barrels, I'm pretty sure the sporter can be had with a 20 but since I'll be changing stocks I'd rather save the $ and go with a Varmint, I've also seen something called a T3 scout on gunbroker that looks to have a 20".
Anybody know?

Sounds like what I'm probably gonna end up doing.
What is the story with the Scout? How old of a model is it? I've never heard of one until I saw one on gunbroker, sucks they got rid of it. Wish they made a .223 CTR, don't want to spring for the Tactical.

I have a t3x varmint in an MPA. Couldn't think of a better combo.

I have a T3x Varmint .223 and it threaded just fine. I like the factory stock for my ergos personally.

I think for a non-magnum round the Tikka action in any chassis would be comparable to a semi-custom.
