Tikka® T3 Hunter .270 WIN Rifle - Blue Barrel & Walnut Stock
I read reviews about the Tikka T3 rifle line for a couple of weeks before I decided to get one. I chose the Tikka T3 Hunter in .270 Win, because of the flat-shooting characteristics of the cartridge. I took this rifle to the range with a Zeiss 3-9X50MC scope mounted on it and went to work. It performed flawlessly, and the action is as smooth as silk! The adjustable trigger breaks like glass, with absolutely zero creep! After sighting the rifle in 2" high at 100 yards, my final two 3-shot groups measured .72" and .95."
Let me address a couple of complaints that I read in other reviews about this rifle: A few complained about a couple of "plastic" items on the rifle. Personally, I have no issue, however, with the so-called "plastic" trigger guard or "plastic" 3-shot clip! It's a non-issue, folks!
In summary, I sold a Weatherby Vanguard to get this rifle. The Tikka T3 Hunter blows the Vanguard away! It is more accurate, the action is smoother, and it has a better trigger. You can pay more for a rifle if you want to guys, but you won't buy anything better for twice the price!!!
