T3x TAC A1 6.5 creedmoor
Hello, first post and new Tikka owner. I just picked up this rifle and I am sure I will love it. I wanted to put on the muzzle brake that was included with the rifle. I followed the instructions as noted in the manual, got the brake positioned correctly and tightened down the fastening screw to the specified 10Nm torque. Tightening the fastening screw did nothing to seat the brake to the barrel. It was not even close to making a tight fit and I could still spin the brake on and off the barrel. The threads are fine but it seems the diameter of the brake is to large for the size of my barrel. Not sure if I got another caliber brake put in with my 6.5 or what the deal is. Just wondering if anyone else has heard of this issue. Thanks and glad to be part of the Tikka family.
