I got a question about the T3 lite ss
Can you guys slide a pice of paper the whole length of the barrel ? I can only get mine to go 3/4 of the bbl, about two inches fron the chamber it stops. Should I Send it back, or is their a screw or something on all models that stops the free floating ?

haha ! I found it on Beretta's website NVM !

There is no problem with your synthetic stocked rifle only wood stocked T3 models are completely free-floated. Due to the stability of synthetic stocks the Tikka engineers have found that this rifle is more accurate with a light upward pressure applied to the barrel. This is accomplished by molding a bump in the stock about 1/2 way up the barrel channel. This could only be achieved with the synthetic stock since the wood stock will change dimensions slightly based on atmospheric conditions.

They are fine rifles, but like any gun they have their drawbacks. First is their plastic magazines, not that they are not strong, but they are VERY expensive to replace. Second, if you are looking at one in a WSM caliber,dont buy it. All Tikka rifles are built on the same action with a long throat,so with the WSM's you will actually lose 100-200 fps. Not even worth the effort, go with a standard caliber.

They good stuff is that they have fully adjustable trigger, great acuuracy,and a very smooth action. I have had 3 of them and regret selling each one (except for the 300 WSM), the .243 and 7mm I had would shoot anything into an inch or less. They are light and very handy. I do recommend switching out the factory recoil pad for a Limbsaver one, makes a world of difference.
