Because 1 cm at 100 meters is .1 mil?When Leica uses centimeters as a linear expression for angular trajectory problem solving all I can think is "didn't we go down this road in the US with IPHY"? Seems this is a similar case, I appreciate the audacity of creating a market but geez such a waste of damn fine engineering.
While 0.1 mil is not exactly perfect, it is close enough to be used as a fairly reasonable number if that is what your military is setup to do.Because 1 cm at 100 meters is 1 mil?
I also wanted to touch on the machined in picatinny rails. I agree it should have been one full length pic rail I am sure they were thinking weight savings, but I hope they were smart enough to have the two spaced apart as if they were one full length rail. Other words if you were to take a full length rail section and hold it directly to the side the slots would line up perfectly on the forward and aft machined rails on the receiver. Secondly if so hopefully they are spaced to where a one piece mount like a SPUHR would work. Hold on just thought of something as I was typing.........a SPUHR is designed to grab the rail for the entire length so maybe that wouldn't work......nevermind carry on. I will never own this rifle I have all my scopes in one piece SPUHRs I move my scopes around at times. Geez that would have solved the no built in cant at the same time if one were to need that.first the machined rail not full length and having any built in rise,
Depends on whether you want to build on it or if you are happy with it the way it is. If you're happy with it as is, go for it.I’m looking at ordering an S20 as the base for my first “higher end” precision/hunting rifle build. Would you all recommend that move or stick to building one from the ground up?
IMHO,,,you can't go wrong with a GAPrecision. GREAT guns.I’m looking at ordering an S20 as the base for my first “higher end” precision/hunting rifle build. Would you all recommend that move or stick to building one from the ground up?
I only have old ruger hunting rifles and my custom AR’s. No custom bolt gun experience.
When do you guys expect to get in the semi-heavy barrel version?Yep we do - also a few other new Tikkas of interest just announced as well:
SAKO S20 - LINK
(info from my rep)
-barrels are same contour
-butt and forends are interchangable and will be affordably priced as will the mags.
-triggers to be 2-stage
-full chassis underneath
-1MOA 5-shot guarentee
