View Full Version : Tikka t3 varmint in 223 and it's all mine

I posted before that I was looking for a varmint gun to shoot at the range with my buddy who has a rem 700. I was originally lookin for a Howa but 1/12 twist deterred me from them. As a sako owner I decided to get my hunting rifle a little sister. Found a great deal on gunbroker for a couple of years old SS bull barrel 223 tikka. Came with Nikon monarch 3-9x scope. Price for everything was the same as if I bought the rifle new. And it's ready to shoot. I will be modifying little by little. I already ordere Harris swivel bipod and soon will order large bolt handle and bolt shroud. Next will be a new scope probably leupold ( I do like them) probably a vx-3L 6.5-20x56 w/ varmint reticle or a similar zeiss. And lastly I will be gettin a whiskey 3 chassis or a gunworx carbon fiber dipped varmint stock (just looks so sweet).

What did you guys do to your Tikkas? Post some pictures. Any recommendations for mods?

I used to have a Tikka T3 Super Varmint and it's a really nice rifle. Congratulations on the Tikka.
