    308 18" Tikka with Gunworks work and stock bag for sale or swap for Tikka 6.5 creed

    Hey guys for sale is my Tikka 308 18" or I would consider a swap for a Tikka 6.5 Creedmoor.

    I purchased this off a guy in Waikato who had put it together and used it for two hunts before he had to sell it as he needed the money about two years ago.

    The rifle has been shortened to 18" and threaded at Gunworks by the original owner, he had a Gunworks can but he kept the can for his other long barrel 308 and I forgot to ask him what thread it was, I was just going to send it to DPT to get them to I.D the thread and put a can on it.

    Gunworks did a good job of the barrel, it has a really nice crown on the barrel.

    I know a lot of guys rate the 18" 308 rifle as a length that is quite good as a short compact rifle but still has a bit of legs which is why I bought it, I'm only selling as I want to do a Tikka 6.5 Creedmoor project.

    The original owner put under 40 rounds through it at the range and hunting and I have put 20 at the range, as to be expected the bore is excellent.

    It has had the "deluxe" gunworks bolt modification done to it, meaning it is the one where you can either chose to use the half bolt or you can just use it like a normal Tikka and Tikka safety (which is what I did). The half bolt actually works quite well I can see why people like it but it is not for me personally.

    It also has had the trigger polished Gunworks and set to a light pull, I think it was 2lbs, it is a very nice crisp trigger.

    Also comes with the stock bag in the picture with zipper compartment and bullet holders.

    $1150 plus freight. Bipod not included

    Don't mean to piss on your picnic mate but you might have to sharpen your pencil to get a few more nibbles. Your competition is stuff like this https://www.trademe.co.nz/a/marketpl...ing/2527125743

    Wow that is cheap, I think a 308 probably has a wider audience than a 243 but that's just my opinion, but man that is a good deal.

    Fair enough - $950. If no luck here will chuck it on trademe over the weekend sometime.
