    It,s arrived!

    Out of the blue I get a phone call, your new tikka .22lr has turned up!
    It's now on it's way to HRE for a rail to be attached and suppressor fitted
    The plan is to pick up tommorow afternoon and get it mounted up and shooting!
    Got the nf to put on it to really give it a work out as well.
    Will keep the .22 shooters posted!

    You have a Lithgow also? Be interesting to have a side by side review of the pros and cons of both.

    Yep and probably would go as far to say the lithgow will be very hard to beat for finish and smoothness.
    It will boil down to how accurate the tikka is.
    The tikka T1x has the brilliant adjustable trigger where as the lithgow you have to change the trigger spring.
    I will know more on the weekend once I have shot it.
