Our Assessment: Tikka are made in Finland by the same company that manufactures Sako - with the Tikka factory being down the road from Sako. Tikka are based on the same action and barrel type as Sako [with the exception of the Sako 85 model.] Where the main differences lie are in the detachable magazine and simpler rifle stock design.
Tikka rifles are well known for their sub MOA accuracy, particularly the 595 and 695 models. They have a recoil lug holding the chamber in place, ensuring there is no movement of the action and barrel when firing shots. (http://www.mountainman.co.nz/products/13)
This rifle is lightly used and ready to go with the extended magazine and scope. This is a tough one to beat in a caliber that is tough to beat.
