New Barrel for my M55 22.250 will current Tikka Barrels work?
Just bought a Tikka Super Varmint in 223 which is great but has shown up my old (1978) Tikka M55 in 22.250 The 22.250 has been a superb rifle, who knows how many rounds have been down that tube and it has never had a screwdriver on it!!! – but it has lost it's Mojo and is struggling to hold 30mm at 100 meters.
Thinking of a new barrel and while there are a couple of good barrel makers here in Aussie I was wondering if a current T3 22.250 barrel would work? Anyone have any experience with this? Is the screw thread etc still the same – that is will a T3 Barrel screw into an M55 receiver ? I am not concerned about the barrel channel on the stock I can work on that myself if need be.
Any input would be much appreciated. Cheers
