    Tikka LSA 55 .243

    This is a lovely vintage Tikka with good woodwork, ,barrel and all metal work re-blued professionally (plus barrel re-crowned) . Check these rifles out on Google to see their pedigree. It is a VERY nice rifle to shoot, well balanced with a right handed palm swell.

    Only reason I'm selling is because after having it re-blued it seems too nice a rifle for the kind of bush whacking hunting I do (much to my sadness I've admitted defeat and off to buy a composite!).

    Bore is in good condition with defined lands, plenty of life yet according to Blaser gunsmith who re-blued it.

    Can't give assessment of grouping as I only zeroed once quickly before a hunt, rolled one red deer with it and that's all.

    $1300

    Call me on 02040036479, please don't leave messages, just text instead if I'm unavailable. Cheers!

    Sorry the photos are massive, couldn't work out how to reduce their size!

    Oh dear. The number of people on here to have sold one of these only to later regret it.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!

    Don't sell it, you'll regret it. Been there,done that! Rifle looks great but they're made to be used.

    Thanks for the encouragement gents but it's got to go. Can only afford to have one and a composite stainless is the sensible choice. Plus I'm a convert to suppressors and they'd ruin the look of a beauty like this.

    Cheers though. I'll chuck it on TM if no interest here after a week.
