this is a near mint condition Tikka T3 hunter in 6.5x55 with a Leupold VX-III 3.5-10x40 mounted using Talley rings. this rifle maybe has 40-60 rounds threw it but otherwise is brand new.

I'm asking $800 for the complete package or $600 for the gun and $200 for the scope.

shot the smallest group of my life with this gun on its first outing... measured 0.3" at 100 yards. ammunition was cheap as I was just doing a bit of break in, probably PPU. I didn't shoot the gun much and ive had it in my safe for a long time so ive got no targets laying around.

Tikka guarantees 1 MOA with there rifles and I can tell you that with the right load it will do much better then that.

Guys this would make a fantastic deer or PG rifle. I already own more 6.5 x 55 (s) than I need, or I would jump on this. Extremely accurate and very mild recoil.

Understood! How long has that shipment taken!?

I paid for the order in 10/16 so we are at around 14 months. I made a unique regulation request which might explain the additional wait time. I wanted the gun regulated for Federal ammunition loaded with Woodleigh Hydro's. this is apparently not widely available in Europe.

Just to add, I have a T3 that shoots right along side of most all my custom builds. Even with factory ammo, it is under MOA.

You're right, they are great shooting guns. I have one in 7mm Rem Mag and love it. Mine is the synthetic stock and I would love another in a wood stock like this one. Heck of a deal!

Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
