The S20 action is kinda T3 rip-off by Sako but that just goes to show how good the venerable T3 is. Hard to make it any better without upping the price .. 🙂
That said i´ve already ordered a S20 Precision in 6.5 CRD , although i´ll toss the OEM barrel and replace it with a 66 cm Krieger LP in 6mm Norma BR. And about them (Tikka) been able to sell more rifles if that UPR would´ve been made earlier : Tikka has sold all the T3´s they´ve made since the dawn of that model so i don´t think that is of any concern to them actually .. 😉
I agree about the mag pricing (although those only cost 99 € over here) and the build quality could´ve been better. The mags feel cheapo …
How is it kind of a rip off of the T-3 action? I don't see it myself. The S20 has a three lug bolt and integral picatinny rail. T-3 has neither. The S20 sits in a v-block bedding system, the T-3 doesn't. So where are the similarities that I am obviously missing?
