Tikka T3x TAC A1: precision rifle - light in weight and compact

Tikka T3x TAC A1: barrel shank
The Tikka T3x TAC A1 is based on the T3 bolt action construction, which was presented for the first time at the SHOT show in 2013.

Tikka T3x TAC A1 is based on Sako´s famous Tikka T3 bolt action construction, but made to meet the new increasingly challenging requirements of long range tactical shooting.

The must-haves of the new weapon were developed based on the comprehensive field tests and the feedback received from relevant operators with different background. As a result the new rifle is at the same time ideally multifunctional, though light in weight, compact and rugged.

Tikka T3x TAC A1 is fully modular and therefore fulfills all operational requirements. The aluminum chassis stock system is compatible with most common type AR fore-ends, pistol grips and rear stocks.

It offers a foldable rear stock with quick adjustable cheek piece and adjustable length of pull. The muzzle is threaded for attaching muzzle brakes and / or suppressors.
