    **T1X LINK - SPECS**


    The first ones have been delivered after much waiting! Got hands-on them yesterday! I see many custom alterations of this one in the future!


    *1/2-28 muzzle thread

    *.860 hole spacing on a flat-top, so it will not take the normal T3 rail (pictured), but would accept a 2 piece option (like these for the Tikka T3)

    *T3 footprint and bottom metal so it will drop into any stocks designed for the T3 or T3x

    *same awesome trigger that can be taken to 2lbs and below easy.

    *Pictured next to a Tac-A1

    *10rd mags that are fairly reasonably priced **MAGS**

    *glad to see they replaced the painted aluminum knob with (what seems like) stainless

    enjoy!

    It looks nice, id love to know how bolt lift is. Shame they didnt give it a nice laminated stock instead of Tupperware

    "nice laminated stock" - A perfect oxymoron IMO.

    IMO, and since you injected the idea by placing them together, this neat little 22LR would be a perfect compliment to the TAC A1 chassis.

    Not if you would like it to feed from the magazine - definitely some high quality options out there though

    Still waiting on a range report. It looks like a shooter need to see some groups to verify it.:D

    I just got through reading about this rifle in Rifle shooter magazine and from what I read it is a tac-driver.
    There were 4 different types of 22LR ammo used and all groups were from 0.49 to 0.69 at 50 yards. I am going to have to think about one of these seriously for sure.:rolleyes::):)
    Thanks carl1575!

    I saw posts with photos of a couple of these on Snipers Hide today - one in a GRS stock/chassis, the other in an AI chassis. Very cool new 22RF rifle, would like to put one in a Manners PRS-1 stock.

    The perfect platform for the .17 WSM, but no dice!

    I am just like the rest of you guys, for the last 3 days I have wore my computer out looking for one of these rifles. The last one I couldn't live with out (at any cost) was a CZ in 6.5 Grendel, $250 over msrp I am the first kid on the block to have the first one. I have been doing this to my self sense I was 40, and now I am 80. The first one that started this run was a AR 15, I think I had one of the first rifles in Yakima. I let every one at our range shoot it the first year I owned it. I have had a life time habit of buying high and selling low (I am a pro at it) so I think this time I am going to cool my heals and wait, I didn't think I would every say that. Carl in Yakima

    carl, you sound like a farmer "buying high & selling low"...lol I'm not 80 yet, but have had my issues with not being able to resist the temptation to buy 'cool stuff'. Bought a CZ 527 carbine in 7.62x39 to get the right boltface so I could re-barrel it for 6RAT. Then when Howa announced their Mini action in 6.5 Grendel, bought a couple more for the same purpose. Saw an ad on EuroOptic's website for "the ultimate trainer", a fance 22RF bolt repeater with Bartlein bbl on a Stiller 2500XR action, in a Manners Elite T4A action with custom bottom metal by Seekins. I choked on the $4000+ price, but wanted one badly enough to buy the Stiller action, fit & chamber a Krieger 22rf blank, and even found an extra stock Manners had made for the EO run, and bought it. Turned out as a very nice rifle, accurate & tons of fun to shoot, but then I became aware of a conversion of Rem 40X 22rf rifles that turned them into repeaters using a 10 poly mag that mimics the shape & size of AICS 308 mags...had two 40Xs purchased from CMP at a bargain price, so converted & re-barreled both of them. Then came the Vudoo Gun Works V-22, and now there are a few of them sitting in the closet.... If only I were half the salesman as some guys I know are, I could re-coup part of the $$$ that's tied up in rifles just sitting around.

    It takes a little re-engineering to the stock to make it work and while the Tikka trigger is pretty good it isn't a 5018 trigger. I may have to try the new KRG midas 2 stage trigger. First time at the range was yesterday: cold, wet, drizzling rain with mud soaking through my prone mat it still shot pretty good, can't wait for a range day where I can feel my trigger finger.

    Let me know if you decide to part with a 40x repeater. I still want one :)
