    Tikka .223 1:8 twist

    After a good condition Tikka Lite S/S with 1:8 twist barrel if anyone has one before I buy new. Preferably not shortened. Will be used as a varminter rather than on large game. Cheers.

    I have a Tikka 1:8 barrel on my Jongmans shoots tiny little groups. It may be up for sale in the future but not at Tikka price.

    Thanks for the offer but can only "afford" Tikka pricing. Cheers.

    I have a Tikka T3 that I'd be willing to sell, It is 1:8 twist. The barrel has never fired a shot. The rifle was purchased new for the action a few years ago and had a 204 barrel put on it and a different stock. The action has fired around 300 rounds the barrel none and the stock is mint. I'm looking for $1100. Let me know if your interested.
