Tikka CTR barrel length – 50 vs 60cm – how do they measure it? Help needed!
I just received my first Tikka – it´s a CTR.
I really like the gun, it´s absolutely nicely made!
Though, I wonder about the barrel length:
The CTR is available both in 50cm and in 60cm. I ordered it in 60cm since I believe, I get the best out of the two worlds. When I picked it up from my dealer I already thought, it was pretty short.
At home I measured the barrel (just the barrel, nothing else) and it is roughly 49cm.
Called my dealer for assistance and he said it is definitely the 60cm version I got.
Now I am wondering if my measuring skills are just insufficient, if Tikka has a different understanding of barrel length then me or….whatever.
Could one of the CTR owners around here (who is certain about his guns barrel length) measure his barrel and tell me whether I am wrong or my order went wrong?
Many thanks in advance,
