    New toy

    M595 Tikka in 243
    End goal for this is a 22 243 in a mcmillan or senator.
    Will just play with it as 243 for now then maybe AI it and further playing until iv worn it out and/or can afford the custom work(Dam wedding!)
    VX1 is a stop gap measure for now.
    Unfired by me so far.



    Fitted with a tuiman2 Carbon suppressor.



    Nice tidy thread Abe

    There was a LH one in 308 on TM the other day and I almost convinced myself I needed it. They are a nice shooter (just a touch heavy).

    I must admit i was surprised at its heft. Think the T3 must have a lighter contour to the barrel? Not a problem for what Il be doin with it

    Not being a gun slut like a lot of you fellas I probably cant really comment on the T3 but they seem like a bloody good gun for the money.
    If anyone had bid against me on it I would have just got a new T3 instead.
