Can't get the Tikka I want - but still trying
Frustration...After finally deciding on that Tikka T3 Stainless Lite MT in 260 Remington, I set about trying to find one. I guess they don't offer that caliber anymore, because nobody I've talked to can order one. So...I thought I'd just get the Sako 85 Stainless Finnlight in 260. That rifle comes in that caliber. But...that's imported by only Sako, and Beretta supplied dealers can't get it. The fact that Beretta owns Sako which owns Tikka has no impact on this for some reason. Beretta supplied dealers can only get the A7, but that doesn't come in 260. So I finally found a Sako supplied seller and yes, he can get the Sako 85, but after some work on his part, he says that they can't order Sako at this time. Whew! Like the Rolling Stones sang, "you can't always get what you want". My brain hurts....
