Tikka, a brand owned by Finland-based Sako and distributed by Beretta in the United States, has unveiled its first-ever rimfire rifle at SHOT Show 2018. These guns are available in either .22 LR or .17 HMR, with 20-inch cold-hammer forged barrels with crossover profiles; stainless steel bolt; metallic bolt shroud; modular stock; enhanced grip; 10-round capacity and a MSRP of $499. The action has the same bedding surfaces and inlay footprint as the Tikka’s centerfire T3x rifles. See the press release below to learn more.
The new Tikka T1x MTR rifle is designed from the ground up to combine the capabilities needed for both range shooting and small game hunting in rough terrain. Tikka T1x is equipped to handle various shooting tasks in all weather conditions, and it’s based on the T3x centerfire platform to offer the shooter the best possible user experience. The market has high demand for a rimfire with an excellent price-quality ratio.
“Responding to the high demand and requests from the market, we’re now proudly presenting the first ever Tikka rimfire rifle. The brand new T1x meets Tikka’s high-quality standards for both usability and precision, which makes it a natural fit for the Tikka rifle family,” commented Mr. Raimo Karjalainen, General Manager at Sako Ltd.
Tikka T1x MTR is compatible with the majority of T3x accessories, which allows the shooter to adapt the rifle according to their personal preferences. Also, the action of this rimfire rifle shares the same bedding surfaces and inlay footprint with the T3x centerfire rifles for an optimal experience. The cross-over profile barrel was engineered so that the rifle would offer the benefits of a heavier barrel without much added weight. We’re truly proud of the Tikka T1x MTR. It’s a rimfire rifle that’s worthy of the revered Tikka name.
