    Tikka M595 .284win

    I once said "out of my cold dead hands" when someone offered to buy this rifle from me...well with much regret I've finally decided that its time to move on.

    This is a 600m capable rifle. But it's done most of its killing at around 20m Bush hunting. I've shot nearly every nz species with it with the exception of a chamois.

    Currently set up with a Leopold 2-7x33 scope, for Bush hunting, selling as a package for $1400, or $1200 if you don't want the scope.







    Comes with all the reloading dies and brass, load data, muzzle brake, thread protector, sako optilocks...everything pictured.

    Has a few scratches from use, but overall its in great condition.

    Factory glass fiber reinforced copolymer polypropylene, painted in textured hard wearing paint. Has a worn smooth patch by magazine where my carry hand has worn it off a little. Very rigid and I've opened the barrel channel a little so it's point of impact is stable when shooting of a pack or bipod.

    I'm trying to justify it but I can't see it doing anything my 7/08 can't do inside 500 yards. Grrrrr!
