    Tikka t3 short action varmint

    T3 varmint .308, 20" factory barrel (has been fluted) bedded in to a mcmillan a3-5, AI bottom metal and mag, fluted bolt, badger type handle. Bought from Greenfields of Salisbury who think the work was carried out by Patrick Croft but I can't confirm that, unknown round count but shoots 168gr factory ammo better than I can. Bought as a dual purpose rifle but I just dont get enough range time so going back to a sporter .308. Let me know if you're interested and I'll sort some photos out.

    Best UK Varminting Calibre?

    My personal favourite is my .220 Swift, I can't say why and no fox will ever know the difference between it and the latest wsmwhizzbangackleyBR. I just like the cartridge, much like my .270.

    Tikka 595 trigger replacement

    I saw that on SD! Thanks for the offer of the set trigger, but I'd prefer a standard one ideally if possible.

    Tikka 595 trigger replacement

    Thats great info thank you, I'll give Dave a shout. Cheers.
  8. Does anyone know for sure if a 595 trigger mech as interchangeable with a t3? Not much on the web and reading conflicting reports if they do or not. Or if anyone has a 595/695 trigger mech they want to sell. Long story but I'm pre empting replacing a missing unit, along with some other bits possibly. Thanks in advance.

    couldn't help noticing

    Lovely, I've got Yoshimura cans on my SP1, can't beat that v twin noise. Got it's ugly brother the Firestorm too which I love, really great road bike. A ccm 604 supermoto for being a tool on. Had various Blades, a 595 Daytona which was a nice bike. Have a really strong itch for a Triumph Thruxton R.

    McM A5 for stalking

    A bit late for the party but, I've got an a3-5 on my T3 .308, purposely bought for highseat work. It works very well apart from needing to drop the cheek piece to remove the bolt. I've happliy used it for general stalking too, it's a fairly heavy lump but not too bad.
