    Picked up this Tikka build from a forum member back a few months ago. I was bored and I really liked the caliber and the Tikka actions, so I bought it to play with and thinking I might need a back up rifle.
    He had only fired a few rounds through it to zero scope. I verified that with a bore scope.
    28.5" Bartlein 5R, tapered to 1" at muzzle, Tikka action was bought new for this build and was trued up and barreled by a well known smith. It is a .175" fb and no turn .294" neck.
    XLR Carbon stock with upgraded buttstock and front bag plate.
    I then went to work on the stock and made a few modifications.
    I made a new rear bag rider out of steel for a bag with 1/2" ear spacing(+/-3.5lbs), added a 1" steel rod (+/- 1lb)to the stock tube (has a screw in one end to adjust length so it doesn't move) and then added aluminum wings to the XLR front bag plate and moved it out just past the end of the forend and wrapped both with Teflon tape. It tracks like it is on rails.
    Also added the XLR folding adaptor to make cleaning easier and sent the bolt to Gre-tan for bushing/small pin conversion. Also made a useable(not pretty) single shot follower for the aics mag that is included.
    Factory trigger is resprung down to 1#
    I put on a longer bolt handle I had left over from a past tikka project. I will include the factory bolthandle.
    It has an EGW 20min rail and Seekins x high rings.
    All topped of with a new Vortex golden eagle scope with the ECR 1 reticle I bought new for this.
    Shoots easy sub 1/2 moa.
    There is a ding in the chassis shown in the pic just under the sr#.
    I have not tuned a load for it, just shot some loaded for my main rifle.
    I have since shot a 2 day midrange match that had some crazy switches and ended up with 980/1000.
    As it sits it is 21.4lbs.
    It now has just under 200 rds through it.
    I'm in no rush to sell, I have had fun playing with it, but I just don't need it taking up space.
    Package deal $3050 shipped lower 48 in a hard case.
    Rifle minus scope and rings Reduced to $1650 shipped
    Scope only if rifle sells alone, $1400 with seekins rings

    The best I remember I added 4.5lbs. Remove scope and I say just rifle is about 14 lbs.
