The Tikka brand is owned by Sako as a cheaper option to their other lines of rifles such as the Model 85. Many consider the Tikka T3X to be the very best hunting rifle for the money in this day and age. The rifle is available in several different configurations and calibers. The T3 was released in 2003, while the T3X was introduced in 2016 as an upgrade over the T3. However, all parts are interchangeable between the two rifles. The T3X feeds with a detachable box magazine for faster reloads. But the real standouts of the rifle include the incredibly light and crisp trigger, smooth bolt operation, and the guaranteed 1 MOA accuracy right out of the box, which is something that many other hunting rifles don’t offer.
