    New Tikka rimfire

    Sounds like a very accurate little rifle. Only thing I don't like about it is the fact it doesnt have a cheek riser. I know this would cost more but I'd happily pay a bit more than having to fork out for a new stock for this reason.

    How are you guys finding the rifle? I'm still in the market for a rimfire rifle and have this on the list of possibilities. I'm between this, a second hand Anschutz 1710 and a Lithgow LA101.

    Some decent groups in there for 50 yards. Will be good to see what's its like with a few hundred rounds through the barrel.

    Do you feel it needs a cheek riser?

    Nice to know it’s up to expectations for your kind of shooting and is a keeper. How did you find the action, was it up to usual Tikka standards?

    Yes obviously you would be trying a variety of ammo on the Tikka anyway to see what’s best. What I meant was to then use the best for both and then a comparison from there. Would only be fair to both rifles that way

    Do u have another/friend that has another .22lr you could do a side by side comparison with? Would make for a great read and proper review. Does it seem I’m a bit excited by this rifle much? Haha.

    Expecting good things from it. Still have a spot for a 22lr bolt action on my ticket so may well be a contender.

    Looks good that. Let us know how it shoots.

    Nice rifle that and no doubt a cracking shooter. Looks very much like a Anschutz target rifle though which my dad has. Looking for something a little more modern.

    I was planning on going the route of the T1x and also then getting a T3x for range shooting (using the T1x as a trainer) but having thought about it I can’t really justify a centrefire rifle for just now as I spend most of my weekends on my motorbike, and wouldn’t get the use out of a centrefire.

    Food for thought yes. I had a look at the Lithgow and look like a cracking rifle and shoots well. I was originally going to go for a Tikka T1x when it eventually comes out. The reason I thought about going down the custom stock route is that I could pick up a 452 and then have the adjustability to have the rifle how I like it for not much more money than a standard T1x would be.
  14. Hi guys I’m looking at buying a .22lr bolt action rifle, and I am weighing up my options. Currently I use an Anschutz semi auto MSR, and also my dads CZ 452 silhouette. (Both of which are great shooters, with only the trigger on the MSR letting it down) I’m toying with the idea of buying another CZ 452 and dropping it into a custom stock and making it my own rifle (having it set exactly for me with the custom stock), or buying the likes of a Anschutz 1710 and relishing in the quality and inherent accuracy built in. Both would work out to be around the same price, with the 1710 being secondhand, and by the time I bought a 452 and custom stock. The use would be mostly indoor shooting at 25 yards, but will also be looking into bunny bashing when I get the chance. Anyone have any thoughts on the above? Thanks
