Tikka T3

Information
The Tikka T3 was designed and manufactured in Riihimäki, Finland by Sako Limited. The T3 embodies the same characteristics of the original Tikka LSA 55/M55 which was manufactured in 1967 before the merger with Sako. I did not become familiar with Tikka rifles until Marcus Blanchard began using one as his match gun for PRS style competition [...]

28 Nosler

Information
A few years after its introduction in 2014 we began using 28 Nosler as one of our “go to” long range big game hunting rounds. We like the high ballistic coefficient of 7mm projectiles and the wide selection of bullet weights. We also like that factory ammunition and reloading components are available, although in 2017 they were [...]

Shorty 6 Creedmoor

Information
Since we’ve made the switch to 6mm Creedmoor for our personal match guns we’ve gotten questions about doing a 6mm shorty. Recently I’ve been testing a Lothar Walther button rifled barrel and decided to find out first hand. I originally finished the barrel for my Tikka at 25″ but decided I was going to cut it down to [...]

I have been shooting for awhile and something that is always referenced when discussing reloading, factory ammunition and rifles is group size. We typically shoot 5 round groups at 100 yards to test the performance of a rifle or ammunition. I have [...]

KRG: Midas 2-stage Tikka Trigger

Information, Products, Video
Over the past year I have gravitated toward 2-stage triggers. The main reason is because my Accuracy International AT has a 2-stage. I have been spending a lot of time with the rifle and became accustom to it. Kinetic Research Group released their Tikka 2-stage trigger called the Midas around the same time. I took the opportunity to change my [...]

We currently offer pre-fit barrels for the [...]

Muzzle Threading

Information, Products
We offer muzzle threading for factory rifles with barrels that are 24″ or longer. That is the shortest length our machines can accommodate without removing the barrel from the receiver. We avoid removing factory barrels because it is easy to damage the barrel or finish. The most common muzzle threads we cut are 5/8″x24 tpi & [...]
