    Surely he's sold it outside of TM and he's jacked the price so no one tries to buy it and he ends up in the shit.

    That puts its worth at around $1880, but normally youd pick it all up as a package for less than that id say. So yeah kinda expensive - Par for the course with 2nd hand tikkas on Trademe.

    Or as said above, doesnt want anyone to buy it so he's cranked the price up.

    No,no,no you guys are figuring this all wrong...

    Second hand Tikka - doubles in value

    That second hand tikka when you top it with average glass - at least triple the value

    Then of course you need to add a surcharge to recover the Tardme fees, so if anything this is a bargain.

    Well I picked up my latest acquisition a sako a7 (berretta a7 depending which way you lean)
    For $900 second hand with low round count.
    It might be considered a fancy pants Tikka but no way would I pay $1000 for a tikka when a sako/berretta could be had for the same or less

    Sh#t my one must be worth at least $10k as its shot 200+ deer at 20kg average meat per animal = 4000kg of back breaking of carrying @ $11kg schedule price, that’s $44,000. That’s how I justify buying good quality glass on my rifles to the wife.

    But to be serious there are of guys asking for there money back on a second hand gear, guns and optics aren’t an investment, is just a tool to get the job done like a hammer or a car. Your not gonna get your back unless you rip someone off.

    Buyer beware and do some research and wait for the real bargains if time allows, I got my Tikka for $700 it took 3 years to get it.
