Tikka TSR-1 Info
Is anybody here familiar with the Tikka TSR-1 rifle built specifically for the PRS Production class? I am looking to expand my LR shooting and play a bit in some of these competitions. I already have a Tikka hunting rifle, so I am very familiar with Tikka quality, fit, finish, and factory triggers. So I think that this Tikka may be the route I want to go.
My issue is that these rifles are a limited edition, and the info on them is spotty. They seem to have been built here in the US using actions from Tikka and McRee stocks. Take a look at the bottom of the attached catalog page and you will see that the web address for the Gray/Black model is actually http://www.tikkaperformance.com. But nothing about them exists at thsi time on that site. Supposedly there were 400 units built in Grey/Black and priced at $1999 MSRP to fall under the Production class limit of $2k MSRP.
But I also have found some with a Bronze/SS color configuration, and they seem to have had a $2049 MSRP according to the attachment. Note this page has the tikka Finland website at the bottom, but I can't find anything on that site now either. According to some other info I found, there were a total of 50 308s and 100 260 Rems in this color. So were these 150 part of the 400, or an additional 150? They technically would not be class-legal at $2049. I also see some places listing them as available in Flat Dark Earth, but I can't find any actual UPNs for this color. I am wondering if these sellers are incorrectly calling them FDE when they are in fact Bronze.
Any information or clarification of any of this would be appreciated.
