Awesome, Sub-MOA, phenomenal trigger. Never found someone that didn't care for it, everyone who's shot one seems to like it.

And a very slick bolt. I really love mine.

The only bad thing I've ever heard is that some folks don't like the plastic magazines. I prefer metal myself but I haven't had any trouble at all with the plastic mag.

Yeah tikka wants $60 or so for their mags. IIRC it comes with two and I lost one.

Never taken apart the bolt to clean

The trigger on my Tikka is even better than my older Remington 700s; very smooth and light.

Tikkas, especially .223 Rem, are more difficult to single-load from the breech than some internal magazine rifles like Remingtons, but I just load from the magazine.

Go price the Sako version and you won't complain anymore.

We have a bolt action rifle forum (which you skipped over to get here) where questions about the T3 would be more at home.

Please try there.
