Description

The Tikka T3x is the next generation of the renowned T3 rifle. These new T3x rifles are built to the same standards that so many have come to rely on from the original T3, and continue to boast a hammer forged barrel, sturdy stocks, and smooth bolt actions. They still offer a 3-shot sub-MOA accuracy guarantee right out of the box, and will continue to represent the great value of the Tikka rifle line. Some new features that set the T3x apart from its older brother include the following:

  • Improved asymmetrical grip pattern and shape that will better accommodate grip in any condition
  • Upgraded recoil pad to mitigate felt recoil
  • Foam insert to lessen noise that is produced from the stock (not available in models with adjustable cheek piece)
  • Redesigned ejection port that creates easier single feeding through the ejection port
  • Improved rail attachment via an extra screw placement on top of the receiver for sturdier rail placement
  • A robust metallic bolt shroud to cover and shield the rear of the bolt body and firing pin
  • Steel recoil lug to decrease deformation even in larger calibers compared the aluminum ones in use in T3 rifles
  • Chassis made by Tikka are short action only.

Tikka has always been considered one of the best options when considering a rifle, and the T3x continues and enhances this legacy.

In addition to the regular T3x features, the Tac A1 also features:

  • A 2-Stage Trigger
  • Includes Muzzle Brake
  • Safety that features a button that allows user to unlock bolt while rifle is on safe

I have two Tikka rifles, new one T3x TAC A1 6.5 Creedmore and my good old T3 in .270 win. As a US Army Sniper Team Ldr I have a pleasure to work with some really good long guns, but i wouldn't be afraid to carry my Tikka T3x TAC A1 into Hell and Back if i had to...right out of the box, rifle is printing 1/4moa groups with Hornadyy ELD 140gr Match and 1/2moa with Winchester 140gr Match ammo...It's solid sub MOA gun at extended ranges as well... I have decided to buy another Tikka because my decade old T3, is still excellent, capable of 1/2 MOA accuracy hunting rifle...hands down, best value for money paid! - Rob

Best groups I ever shot. At CMP range on day one shot a 100/100 8X at 600 yards and 8-11 mph wind. Dropped two X's. Bought a second one next day.

I have taken my new Tikka T3x TAC A1 to range and the first group after zeroing and barrel break-in at 100yds was .405" second group was .450" using Hornady 140gr ELD match ammo. Incredible weapon system, can't say enough good things about the function and accuracy, absolutely flawless. I then set it up on the Long Range (600yd.) and was able to dial up first round hits at 200, 300, 400, 500 and 600yds on 24" steel plates. If you don't have one these you certainly need to consider getting one, you will definitely be very happy. Love them Finland boys, the make some the finest firearms on the planet. I will be going head to head with a friend who has a RPR in 6.5 Creedmoor very soon, I pretty sure the Tikka will out shoot the Ruger any day of the week.

Love this rifle!! My first Tikka. Matches shot for shot my Barrett MRADs when I switch to 6.5 Creedmore caliber.....and I paid almost 4 times for the MRAD what I paid for the Tikka. I have 7 caliber conversions for my two MRADs with each conversion costing about what I paid for the Tikka. Don't misunderstand me. I LOVE my 2 MRADs. and being part of the "Barrett Shooting Family". But the comparison between the MRAD and the Tikka is like comparing my Harleys with a Honda Gold Wing. The Honda is everything the Harley is not....smooth, dependable, efficient, great performer. But, it is NOT the Harley experience. :) :) The Tikka is a really great performer and an even better value. Only disappointments with the Tikka are the 0moa rail (what were they thinking???) and the left folding stock. I appreciate the right folding MRAD stock as it protects the bolt, and doesn't increase the overall width of the folded rifle like the left folding Tikka stock. Also, the right folder offers a better, smoother slinging function humping it to the next setup.

.3 to .5 MOA 5 shot groups with Hornady .143 grain ammo. She's a shooter - believe the reviews. Great trigger and rock solid folding stock. Action is smooth as silk.

Just had time for a 5 shot group with it before the range closed. Fired a couple rounds to get close to a zero but due to time constraints i then fired a five shot group at 100yds. The first four rounds were all in the same, not to ragged, hole. Needless to say i was too excited on my 5th shot for my 1lb trigger.... yes... i dialed the stock trigger down to a measly 1 lb. Ended up with a .5 MOA group but should have been .25 like the first 4 shots. This rifle is a dream. So glad i bought it. Steiner T5xi 5-25x56 in a Spuhr mount and shot off a bag on a bench rest that wasn't very stable. When other shooters fire everything vibrates. If i was using a bag jack.... .25 MOA would be EASY. You could definitely do even do better than that with a bag jack. 147 Grain ELD Match Hornady. Served in the Special Operations community. Can't recommend this rifle any more highly.

I have a Ruger m77 mkll which is a real shooter with Steiner T5XI 5-25 in 6.5 Creedmoor and now have a tikka T3X Tac A1 set up the same met up with a guy at Bass Pro shop and got to talking we headed out to the range on a windy day and we’re piging steel at 485 yards consistently using hand loads of Hornady brass and Sierra 140 hpbt bullets and some Hornady 143 ELDX bullets only .1 mil left correction and only 2.2 mils up at 485. Shooting from sand bags we both didn’t miss a shot and we put at least 50 rounds each down range. Before I went to the range I used break free CLP to clean the barrels and lightly oiled the barrel then after five rounds I cleaned the barrel and didn’t look back. For reloaders you must trim the brass before is best but at least after the first outing. The chamber is maxed out with the length of new brass untrimmed my Ruger has a little more length in the chamber so remember to trim your brass. The rifle is tops it came with their T-rings but I opted to buy Spur rings with 42.4 M.O.A for some serious long range use which is what Steiner recommends. Funny how their rings don’t give you that option but they do have a level. Which I highly recommend, my buddy was shooting in an arc and was ready to make adjustments and I told him he was canting the rifle and to use the level. His longest shot earlier was 285 yards after he started using the level he never missed a shot and we did a bunch at the limit of my range. Whatever scope you use purchase a good level and make sure your scope is level. Also buy a good fiberglass cleaning rod and bronze brushes and I prefer a plastic patch holder a jag is good but finicky about patch thickness and size not good is you have multiple rifles of various caliber at the range. This rifle exudes quality. I didn’t realize that this is actually a long action I read we’re all the tikka rifles are. I’m curious if those in .223 are also. Love the bolt handle and the bolt slides so smoothly I never want to go back To using my remington again. The Ruger once I took the coating off the Mauser extractor and all bolt contact points then polished these surface it doens’t Bind And shoots about the same as the Tikka and has a nice bolt handle so now I have two really good rifles to compete against a friend new or old.

Finally found and bought one. Have several Tikka's already and each one is a shooter for an off the shelf rifle. Just befinning load development and everything i have tried is under 1 MOA Even factory ammo. My loads using lapua brass, H4350 powder, Hornady 140 ELD bullets gave me two 3 shot groups of .25 and .27 inch. Good start. Will be taking it iut to 600 yrds in a couple weeks.

At last. took new Tikka T3x TAC A1 6.5CM out of the box. Love this rifle. Set it up with Leupold Mark 4 ER/T 6.5-20x50 FFP TS-60 reticle; 0MOA Nightforce 30mm 6 screw rings with front RAP 1913 rail section for future mounting bore co-aligned laser range finder; Accuracy 1st anti-cant level; Atlas bi-pod; CTK Rail-Pod monopod. Literally paid $1400 for rifle, so not too upset that it did not come with a fore end rail for the bi-pod....added Magpul aluminum M-Lok rail section for $20. Left trigger pull as out of box at just under 6lbs on Lyman digital. Check piece easily adjusted with no discernable movement. Left pull as out of box. Wish pull were not spacer adjusted when others want to shoot. Just to warm it up out of the box, shot Federal Premium 6.5CM 130 Berger OTM (LabRadar = 2860fps avg with 13ES). Bore looked very nice with bore scope; cleaned very easily. For first 100 rounds yielded 100 yd 5 shot groups all below 0.5", several at 0.25". Shot three quick 4" 5 shot group at 600yds before strong storms blew through ending the day. Looking to try Hornady 143 ELD-X and 147 ELD-M and run it out to 1200yds. (Although the TS-60 reticle has about 35MOA, will probably switch to 20-40MOA rings...my old Luppy friend only has 70MOA total.) If the 143/147s shoot any better than the 130gr, may not even expend the heartbeats to work up loads....just buy/go shoot/ring steel/SMILE!!! Rifle got a lot of attention at the club on the firing line. GREAT VALUE AND GREAT PERFORMER!! Makes me look like a shooter...Thanks Tikka. :) :) :)

Read all the positive reviews and finally bought this incredible rifle. After sighting in at 100yds, I put a total of 80 rounds through her today. Shooting from a bench rest, I managed to get rounds stacking on top of each other on a steel plate at 300 yds. This is the same accuracy I get from my AI AE MkIII, but I paid a lot less for this Tikka. Ammo used was Hornady Match 140gr ELD and 147gr ELD. You won't regret buying this Tikka rifle.

I have this rifle paired with a NF ATACR 7-35x56 Mil XT optic in a Spuhr mount and it is one wicked combination. Yesterday i hit a soda can at 1,380 yards in 14 shots in a nasty 90 degree crosswind and tons of mirage. Last weekend i hit a soda can at 1,004 yards in 3 shots. I have hit out over a mile on two occasions. Last time was 2/9 at 1,850 yards. Hitting milk jugs at 1,400 yards with this rifle and that scope combo is childs play. This rifle will take the 6.5 Creedmoor well out to the nether regions of the calibers maximum range, accurately. All the above mentioned shots were with Match ammo, not hand loads. I couldn't be any more impressed than i am currently with this rifle. I felt that instead of talking about shots inside 1,000 yards and or talking about groups at 100 yards i would tell you all about REAL WORLD accuracy and performance. This rifle is the best precision rifle on the market for the price that i'm aware of. If you are serious about making accurate long range shots and you don't want to break the bank, this is your rifle. I can't believe what i've been able to do with mine.

This is an amazing firearm for the price. Amazing accuracy out of the box. In the not so distant past this quality would have cost ten times as much. It is heavy, but there are more than ample sling attachment points, adjustments stay put, trigger is top notch. The optics mount is a 0° rail, but there are great mounts available with offset options. I like Warne one piece quick detach mounts and bipod, can't beat the quality for the price, they are rock solid. Really can't say enough good about this rig, you will not be sorry.

Great quality and accuracy. 5 shot dime size groups aren't exaggerated. Small piece of pic rail for a bipod wouldn't have hurt, but is a minor point. My only other critique is I haven't been able to get the trigger adjusted thru the window in the magwell as claimed, but that's probably more me, not the rifle. Finally, the guys at Euro Optic are great.

I'm extremely happy with my Tikka t3x tac a1! Shooting off a bipod at 100 yards I'm averaging around 1/2 moa with my best just under 3/8 of an inch. That's with factory 130 grain ammo. The action is really smooth. The folding stock is very nice and locks tight with no play whatsoever.

Just bought the T3x TAC in 6.5 Creed yesterday. I've had a yearning for a precision rifle and I wanted supreme value for my hard earned dollars. Started out by putting together an AR10 (technically incorrect nomenclature) Aero Precision and had to add adjustable gas block and fine tune. Just not what I had hoped for so far but have under $850 invested so you get what you pay for. Finally had to admit I'd made a mistake and the Tikka was the remedy. Put a leupold vx-3i 4.5-14x50mm cds on it and my son and I took it to the range. Only shot at 50 and then 100 yards but WOW! So consider: We (I) forgot to grab the dang sandbags. No bipod is mounted yet . Rifle had only been shot maybe 20 times prior to our 5 shots. We used cheap ammo (Hornady American Gunner 140 gr. BTHP = $1 a shot). (49 degrees F and light breeze = not a factor) So we set paper targets side-by-side at 100 yards (after zeroing the scope, obviously) and agreed to a five shot contest. My son shot 1 MOA (he pulled one shot or it would have been close to .5") and his old man shot .75" (sub-MOA). I am putting my review here because I read these reviews before buying the rifle. Kevin (Rob)'s post dated 08/15/2017 was the icing. (Thanks dude!) I have absolutely no doubt with proper break in, top notch ammo, right bracing... this thing is a 1/2 MOA rifle all day long. My itch for a precision rifle is full-on scratched! Looking forward to putting some rounds further out.

Sub MOA at 207 yards with factory ammo in first range session. One disappointment was the 90% failure to eject rate! Almost didn't mind because it was so accurate, but having to reach into the ejection port and grab and remove 9 out of 10 pieces of spent brass that were not ejected by cycling the bolt is not acceptable for any rifle, let alone one from Tikka!!

I left a review here back in 2019 when i first bought this rifle. Back then i had no real experience with, save a trip to the range in which the grouping at 100 yards really impressed me. Fast forward to today (August 2022) and i can't say enough good things about this precision rifle. Screw talking about "groups". Let's talk about what this baby can do at long range. Yesterday i hit a soda can at 1,004 yards in 3 shots and that was with me guessing on my DOPE for shot #1. The the first adjustment ( half a mil down and point 2 L ) was nearly perfect. The second adjustment was perfect ( point 2 R ) and i nailed the soda can. The weekend prior to this one i was 2/9 at 1,850 yards on an 18" competition silhouette and also hit a milk jug at 1,400 yards with relative ease. Next week i'm going for a soda can at 1,400 yards inside of ten shots. This rifle, with the right optic, ammo and shooter is quite capable of the feat. This rifle is incredible and it is still cheaper than the DD Delta Pro. I'm a former US Special Operator and i absolutely cannot recommend this rifle any more highly. If you don't buy one, that's on you.

Very good rifle, in my opinion. Extremely accurate. I have known a couple of guys who could shoot a fly off your ear, I am not one of them. Having said that, this weapon has helped me to consistently tighten up groups out to 600, which is as far as I can shoot around here. At 200 prone, depending on how badly my bones are creaking, I can shoot 150-200 every time with this rifle. The 6.5 cartridge and the superb muzzle break gives just about zero felt recoil. I had a Nightforce NX8 which I switched out for a Trijicon Tenmile because reasons. Does not make any difference worth a spit because they're both good scopes. So enough Do Ray Me me me and I will tell you that the weapon is very good in every way, it's a great shooter and a lot of fun. I would recommend buying it.

This Tikka is an awesome gun! I love to pull up at the range and set it out on display for everyone to drool over. All joking aside it’s probably my favorite gun. If it wasn’t for the reviews here at eurooptic and this YouTube video ( https://youtu.be/0u77AnVKQEc ) I probably would’ve ended up with a bergara.

This is my 5th Tikka. Like all the others it's a half MOA rifle. Out of the box it shot incredible. If you're on the fence about this weapon system pull the trigger, You won't be sorry. Maybe you can find something that shoots this good, but it be hard to find something that shoots better in this or double it's price range..

Great shooter out of the box. Smoothest bolt action. Nice coating all around. Very solid lock for folding stock. This rifle loves American eagle 120 grain open tip match, three rounds touch each other 1/4 moa. Eurooptic company is the best seller ever. Great customer service, price and fast shipment, I definitely recommend every shooter to buy from this company.

To be transparent, I didn't buy my Tac A1 from EuroOptic but I'm bored so here I am. I've had my Tikka A1 in 6.5 Creedmoor since September of 2017 and ran it in PRS matches. It's been in rain, mud, snow, and heat. Accuracy has been superb. With factory Hornady 140gr ELD ammo you can expect 1/2 MOA out of the box. With my reloads I was easily shooting 0.3 MOA routinely. The aftermarket for Tikka is fantastic with bolt accessories, trigger springs, complete drop in triggers, arca rails, chassis, stocks, and prefit barrels. I'm on my second barrel and the rifle just keeps on hammering. The one issue I've run into with this rifle is with the magazine. Every once in a while the CTR mag would cause a round to go 'nose up' and the bolt would not pick it up. There are several videos and threads on SnipersHide on how to fix this by adjusting the spring. It's very easy and I have not had a single issue since. This is a fantastic rifle and I wouldn't hesitate to purchase it again.

Good Lord. I bought this rifle and matched it with a Vortex Viper Gen II PST 5-25x50 MRAD 7c reticle (all from EuroOptic — fantastic customer service — thank you, Keefer!). Took it to my local 100 yd range and shot 3/4 moa all day long right out of the box. Can’t wait to stretch it out next week at the 300-600 range. 1000% thumbs up. Buy this rifle. You will love it.

I own a lot of bolt rifles over the years. Always been a Remington fan. Boy oh boy I’m a believer in this tac a1. It shot so good and the group so tight. Zeroing the riffle at 100 yards shot. The 4 groups averaging from 0.45 to 0.56 inches. Than I start to go out to 200 to 600 yards. Making adjustment base on my strelok pro ballistic app. The joy of hearing the metal plate rings. Now I need to find a range past 600 yards.

Unbelievable. My first day taking this to the range was simply to break the rifle in and lap the barrel. I had no expectations to group. Once I attained my 100 yard zero, I thought might as well go out to 200 yards. I was shooting 140gr Hornady ELD Match in 6.5 CM. My first 3 shots grouped at about a half inch at 200 yards. I've never shot that tight of a group with any of my other rifles. Could it have been a miracle group? Possibly. But I'm sure as hell happy about purchasing the Tikka T3X A1.
