Default My Christmas Present Tikka T3 lite.

The wife bought me a new rifle for Christmas. I wanted a stainless steel rifle, was looking at the Ruger American, but they did not have one in a stainless so I went with the Tikka T3 lite in a .308. One of the sweetest shooting guns I've ever shot. Guarenteed 3 shot 1 MOA. I bought my son the American by Ruger in a .308 last Christmas and it is a nice shooting gun, but I think I like this Tikka even better. However it did cost more than the Ruger. My son has killed two 8 pointers this year with his Ruger.

Nice! I almost bought one recently but read some mixed reviews about threading the barrel so I went with the Ruger American.

Do you mean THE PLACE you were looking at didnt have a Ruger stainless? Ruger actually does make the American in stainless as "all weather". Ive been looking at it closely! Tikka is a fine firearm though!

I shot a Tikka in 260 a couple of months ago and it was very nice.
