View Full Version : Need A lil help

February 8, 2010, 01:49 PM
So I bought my first gun (currently waiting the ridiculous CA 10day wait period), but i found the rifle I got seems to be extremely difficult to research online or i'm just so new to owning a gun I don't know left from right. So i was hoping i could get some helpful info.

So I bought a 25-06 ithaca rifle (i believe a LSA-65 model, have to confirm with my papers when i go home) off of a coworker for 300 dollars. He says he's only owned it for 4 months bought it for 600 something and has only put 20 rounds through it (i believe him but i can't garuntee). It's got a scope on it but he managed to leave the mag when he moved. So my biggest issue is trying to find a mag for it but all i seem to find says "25-06 rem" from tikka so idk if that works or not.

So my three main questions are: Where can i find a mag? Is this a fairly good gun? and was 300 a proper price to pay for said details?

The $300 are a good price even with the magazine missing. A spare magazine might be a pain to find, but should be under $100. One thing to look for, the 25-06 magazine should be identical to the 30-06 one which might be easier to find.

Welcome to the forum.

You should check the classified ads on the shooting forums and also
www.gunbroker.com to find a magazine. Good luck.

Your Ithaca LSA65 was made by Tika years ago as the model M65 or M658. View the manual here (http://www.tikka.fi/pdf/manuals/old/Tikka558_658.pdf).

As far as parts, you might try Beretta USA, even though your rifle was made years before Beretta even thought about taking over the company.
