    I think for $800 or $900 they'd be a good deal, anymore and I think they'd get lost in the market.
    For $800 I'd buy one too replace my CZ (if they turn out as good as expected), the 10 round almost flash mag would be great.

    But at $1200+ I'd stick with my CZs and go for an Annie or Sako were I looking for something a bit nicer.
    And I'm a Tikka fanboy.

    The price of the T1X will have to be reasonable as the vast majority of .22 users out there go for cheap. A friend recently bought a Weihrauch .22LR bolt action at a H&F store for $1000 - normal retail is $1295. Salesman said it had been sitting there for at least a year as just about all the .22LR rifles sold were Norinco's, 10/22's etc; occasionally a CZ for the more discerning customer but they were not that common. Most customers just weren't interested in quality .22's.

    Most of us on a forum like this appreciate an accurate, well made .22LR but we are in the minority.

    Whatís a new Sako Quad worth? Not the laminate version

    The Weihrauch is a great rimfire, but you could use it as a boat anchor

    i had a look at NZ prices of Sako Quads the other day . . . $2200 for the RANGE model & $1800 for a Finnfire2 . . . so $1099 for a Tikka isn't a surprise

    worldwide i think Tikka will sell a heap of them . . . not to most shooters but to guys that will appreciate them.

    i take my hate off to Tikka for the design/concept of this rifle . . . its cheaper than a Sako by a good margin & has features that are differeent enough from the Sako to round out the line of quality rimfires in the Beretta lineup, well done.

    So why would you buy one? Don't you have a quad or two?
    This isn't me hating on them either, I think for the tikka boys it's a great option, just pure curiosity for buying something like that at that price point over the likes of CZ etc

    If you are not into the CZ it can be a bit tricky buying around that price range. I ended up getting a wood T-Bolt last year ago as wanted something reasonably light to carry in the hand and felt the Finnfire/Quad option a bit pricey. Even though Iím not a Tikka fan boy I would have probably gone down that road. Iím just not that into the T-Bolt now I have it. Or maybe itís just that a more expensive 22 just feels a bit pointless for what you want it for...

    first off a small correction needed in my last post . . . i meant to say i take my hat off tikka, not hate . . . damm that auto spell check

    i do have 2 Quads, with diffeerent stocks and barrels, probably sell one . . . . the main reason i like the Tikka is because its a full sized rifle, most rimfires feel sawed off to me.

    i still have to handle one and find the money before anything happens . . . could be awhile . . . plenty of time to see the reviews etc


    this is where we differ @LOC
    Or maybe it’s just that a more expensive 22 just feels a bit pointless for what you want it for...

    a quality firearm is just a pleasure to carry and use . . . going back to a cheaper rife would be the pits

    Funny market that one, if I'm looking for a top end rimfire it's into semi-target category - Annie, Weihrauch etc. For a general purpose pest control tool that's going to get bounced, flogged and used like a tool you can't really go past the Norinco JW15 bolt guns or the 10/22 semi's (or Marlin for the guys that can't make the 10/22 work for them) so that mid-range section of the market for me is really not a place that holds any interest.

    I've seen 10/22's that are absolutely worn out with bolt stop holes peened to ovals in the back of the receiver, barrels so swollen at the back from the bolt landing home that they needed to be pulled from the receiver using a press. The headspace on one was short enough to have the occasional slam fire, and another had a barrel with two bulges in it but they both were still doing the job. No idea how many crates of ammo that those guns would have seen but it would have been into the several hundred thousand at least. I can't quite see one of the new fangled T1's hanging in that long or hitting that market, but to be fair I've been wrong before!!!

    probably a couple hundred to dear for blued barrel , maybe matt stainless for that money.probably buy a cz or ruger target for what I want at the moment . if tikka bring out a mini action for 223 / 6.5 Grendel action I would look at them then as would be good practise with same stock size between 22lr and small centre fire .

    maybe they will drop in price after the initial fanfare dies down . . . or to many are sitting on dealers shelves for to long.

    who knows . . no one can ever pick the winners in advance.


    for $1499 this is a real jump in performance . . .
