How do you like it compared to the Kahles?
Hi.

Just received it today.
Quick mount to a SAKO TRG mount and took some shots :D
Not been able to even look it through the scope yet a propper look.
Though that quick look, it is giving that, aha moment, very forgiven eye box, i hate some scopes, that have that very tight eye
line thru the scope.
I think that scope must have some play on the eye box, if you dont have it, you can compare that scope, that you tape it thru to your head, that it wont lost the eye line to the scope.
What i know about these scopes and read of these on guns&ammo, the smaller (shorter) of scope bell is, the more bitch it on the eye box.

Just a heads up to other tikka people

Mountain tactical has some deals. Grabbed another bolt handle, bottom metal for my 223 lite and a couple bullet 223 mags with 2.6” coal.

Another few months waiting for McMillan, a cerakote and my 223 coyote gun will be complete.

I freaking hate, that there is not AICS metal for decent price in Finland for my 223rem.
Brownells FI has Accurate mags, but it cost 135€, it´s like 150$ :(

I think I need one of those bag riders for my Tac A1!

I’m In need of a magazine tension spring that mounts to the trigger assembly. I’m converting my CTR to use the standard T3 plastic mags. if anyone has one left over from your chassis builds, I sure could use one. I’ll be happy to pay. Thanks in advance.

Yes it will.
Only the trigger safety might be needed to dremel a bit, since it is little bit different than the normal trigger.

I have one as well, but can't sell it yet. Ordered a chassis for my Tikka on Black Friday, but may be a while before it ships.

There’s a post somewhere in this thread wherein somebody used a 27mm Pipe Clamp.

Thanks for your reply. I was hoping I could slow down the shipping of the GRS stock but Brownell's is just too efficient! I am not much of a gunsmith so was hoping that I hadn't bitten off more than I could handle. My goal is to shed some weigh off the original stock/package. Time will tell. Guess there is always the PX!

You could swap in a stock T3/T3X trigger on it too? Get a super crisp 1lb trigger and have it fit your GRS stock.

IDbound , do not change that TAC A1 trigger in to a stock trigger or sell it, you wont get it back once you sell it.
With yodaves spring, it is even less than on 1lbs trigger, and i love that 2stage on it.
If you swap your TAC A1 chassis in to a Berskerk, you need a normal plastic Tikka magazine, unless you did not get CTR version, but anyway, you need a bottom metal for that stock, it does not come with one.

Excited to give these a try, longer 223 mag. Going to play with some 75 eldm. Hopefully does the job for a plinker/coyote gun.

I run the 75gr ELDM at 2.49" out of MDT mags in my 223 Varmint. Try H4895 for the best velocity and it is temp stable. I ahve taken it out to 1400 yards, really fun to shoot suppressed. I am using NAMMO brass and CCI450s. Start at 24 and work up.
