First Time Tikka Owner
I bought my first Tikka the other day, a used 243 Win. T3 Lite. I have been a long time Savage rifle fan and have built a rifle off a Savage action. My buddy is a big Tikka fan and we used to argue about which one is better, all in good fun.
Anyway, I shot his Tikka 7mm-08 the other day and I couldn't believe how smooth the rifle ran. I was impressed to say the least and I jumped on the first good deal I saw.
I have been reading about all kinds of upgrade people make to factory Tikkas, I had now idea the aftermarket was that strong for these rifles. My question is, what kind of upgrades do y'all recommend? I like the trigger a lot, the stock obviously needs to go, but should I get s metal recoil lug and bolt shroud?
Also, how hard is it to rebarrel a Tikka? Do they require specific barrel types?
