    Tikka T3 Custom Heavy barrel

    Kreiger barrel, 1-10 twist, finished at 26", threaded for suppressor or muzzle brake, bead blasted finish, fit and chamber in 308 for T3. Could fit your T3 with correct head spacing of course. Estimated fired 300 rounds. It's a bit heavy for my intended purpose, I am putting out a feeler to see if there is any interest before getting it reprofile. Looking at $550 O.N.O. Cheers!

    Hey mate. How heavy is she. I have a tikka 308 that shoots very accurately and I'm at on the other side of the fence. I want to go heavier.

    How is the condition of the bore, which caliber and what sort of top up are you looking at? Cheers!
