Everyone in New Zealand is aware of the Tikka T3's excellent reputation as an affordable and highly spec'd rifle for the serious hunter and marksman.
Tikka has heard the suggestions of the people and have created an evolved version of the T3 - the T3x.
Some of the brilliant features of the T3x include:
Modular stock - The T3x has a new modular synthetic stock that has interchangeable pistol grips, making it possible to modify the angle of the grip. This allows for multiple shooting positions. The T3x synthetic stock also has an additional attachment point which allows you to change the width of the stock’s fore-end. Additional grips are sold separately.
Improved grip - The synthetic stock has a new asymmetrical grip pattern and shape that has been specifically designed to give a solid grip in all conditions.
New recoil pad - A new recoil pad technology that reduces the impact of recoil on the shooter. The new robust pad allows you to fully concentrate on the accuracy of your shots.
Stock noise reduction - Be as silent as the forest. T3x synthetic stocks now have a foam insert within the interior of the rear stock, lowering the stock-generated noise and helping you keep your target in sight.
Redesigned ejection port - The new T3x receiver introduces a widened angular ejection port that makes it easier to feed one cartridge at a time.
Improved rail attachment - The T3x has extra screw placements on top of the receiver so that you can robustly attach a Picatinny rail – even when using larger scopes.
Metallic bolt shroud - A metallic bolt shroud covers and shields the rear of the bolt body and the firing pin.
Steel recoil lug - This extra-strong lug has minimal deformation, even with larger calibers. Compared to aluminium, the steel lug doesn't have strong imprinting qualities that would cause deformation when larger calibers are used.
Of course, the T3X also has a left-hand option too (for $100 extra).
As you can see, the T3X is no joke and has been designed with the serious shooter in mind, all at an excellent price point!
