    Tikka LSA55 222

    very good condition,shoots very well, has been rust reblued and stock oiled with briwax teak oil so it glossy, to make it a matt finish just rub with fine steel wool. 1in rings, 3 round mag, if the bolt is worked very slow it does not feed very well but at normal speed it works fine, threaded 14x1, 80 rounds ammo if picked up. Scope not included. could help with delivery around CNI. I would like $900 if you think this is high make an offer. New magazines available from Watersrifleman in Aus.

    WOW a real live wood and blue Tikka......beautiful rifle,someone will buy this and be in love from first fondle....
    feeding issues are just one of them things...different shaped ammunition can sort it out as can dropping one less round in magazine sometimes....

    look forward to seeing how fast this is snapped up.

    One of life's regrets re rifles moved on. We all have examples of these...

    I had one of these, brand new, in 22-250. A "proper" Tikka made pre the interferance of Italians. Paid $138 spanking.
    Superbly accurate, nice action, nice trigger, nice calibre.

    I eventually toasted the barrel and instead of rebarreling stupidly accepted a low ball trade in offer at Reloaders on a Sako 75 in the same calibre.
    The Sako is nice but I never warmed to it the same as my old Tikka.

    Mine was all Fin except for the American market it had a recoil pad marked Ithaca.

    The other regret, around the same time, was getting rid of an Anschutz 1574 in 222R.
    10-Ring and hotsoup like this.

    Does it have Finlander (mmm spelling) engraved after Tikka on the side of the action?
    Mine did and I think that was done by the Australian importer.
