    Can anyone give me any information on these rifles.

    I have recently bought a second hand .243 for my 9 year old son to use on Springbuck, Impala and Blesbuck.

    The rifle shoots like a dream and the action is as smooth as butter.

    Regards.

    A nice Finnish rifle, likely from the 1970's. LSA is short for "Light, Strong, Accurate" which pretty much says it all!

    LSA-65 is the long action version. Tikka is short for tikkakoski which means woodpecker if I remember corectly. Quite logical considering that they started out as a machinegun manufacturer.
