    I like the more open ejection port, as the T3 one is annoyingly small. ONE of the reasons I own a 595.
    The fancy adjustable stock? - something more to break
    The recoil pad? - maybe better than having to buy a limb saver.
    Quiet stock? yeah maybe.

    Apart from that cant really see a lot of improvements but maybe the ejection port would be enough for me.

    H&F? typical NZ retailer who thinks they can rout us...

    Drill and tap the side of the thing. One bolt to keep the other one in and it's a lot cheaper than the factory price...

    It's all a bit "Meh"for me.... I was hoping for something a little, well, more?.... It's like upgrading your 97 Toyota Corolla for the 98 Version.... I guess though it is a Tikka so it was never gonna be anymore than that? That's why they have Sako.

    Lighter would have been a nice feature

    But if you upgraded a Toyota corolla you would still have quality

    They could glue boxing gloves onto hunters hands haha. My T3 bolt takes a hard squeeze and pretty much 2 hands to take out. It's never come out on its own
