Tikka T3x TAC A1 is a special development for law enforcement sniper application. The rifle is based on Sako’s famous Tikka T3 bolt action construction but made to meet the challenging requirements of long range tactical shooting. The T3x TAC A1 provides straight-forward performance and ruggedness with just the right amount of adjustability and absolute precision, all in a lightweight and compact package.
The aluminum chassis stock system is ambidextrous and offers a foldable rear stock with quick adjustable cheek piece and adjustable length of pull. Picatinny rail on the receiver provides a solid platform for day scope mounting and an AR-type for-end for NVD, LAD and other accessories. The muzzle is threaded for attaching muzzle brakes and/or suppressors. Silky smooth bolt operation provides flawless feeding from the steel box magazines.
The aluminum chassis stock system is compatible with most common type AR-15 fore-ends, pistol grips and rear stocks, making the rifle fully modular to fulfill all operational requirements.
The T3x TAC A1 will be available in .308 win and comes with 16″ or 20″, 4-groove, 1:11″ barrels. The included box magazine holds 10 rounds. The trigger is single stage and adjustable between 1-2kg. Factory accepted accuracy is said to be sub 1 MOA, with high quality match ammunition.
As far as I’m aware these aren’t in production yet, so don’t go calling your favourite Tikka dealer just yet, but they will be coming at some point.
It looks as though the Ruger Precision Rifle has shaken up the rifle market a little and that can only be a good thing. Thanks Ruger and Tikka for another good looking rifle.
