My Mrs just picked up a Browning TBolt, nice little riffle, its only had about 20 rnds through it, but I just put 6 shots into a 1/2 inch at 50m laying prone with a bipod and no rear rest (and very rushed as I left the liitle fella i side watching TV) Just another option to make thing even more difficult

If im ever stumped with a choice of two rifles that seem on par with one another i like to pick them up and shoulder each one to see what feels the most comfortable.
Wait untill the t1comes into your lgs, your decision might come down to weight, feel, length of pull etc.

Just to confuse you more, have you looked at old second hand proven stuff?
The most accurate rifle i own is a 1954 brno!

Also a mate of mine has an old single shot anschutz (not sure of the model) worth about $50 that shoots like a lazer.
Money doesnt necceaarily buy accuracy.

I'm definitely open to any and all out there when I go down a shoulder a few when my licence clears, I had a ball shooting a mates 1980 something Striling 22LR with open sights and they can be had with a 10 shot mag for about 50 bucks, 4/10 shots on a 4" plate at roughly 100 metres made me pretty happy with it. Seems like every few weeks there are 2nd hand 22lr's with a scope popping up at a few of the local gun shops, If a 452 American or similar pops up I'll probably get one of those as I've shouldered a couple and like the overall feel. I would love to support Australian Made but until I handle one I'm not sure how the extra weight will feel.

I havent been lucky enough to have a look at a tikka T1X, I look forward to finally having a look at one. I do however own a la101 in 22lr and can happily say that with out hesitation I would buy another it shoots really well and to date i havent had a problem with it at all. That being said I also like my tikka and sako rifles so im somewhat torn lol.

I think it’s fairly safe to say at this point that by far the biggest difference between two is the weight. Having personally felt a t1x (and owning a la101) the weight difference is rather significant. So given that fact, I know which one I’d take bush (the t1x) and I know which one I’d take to the range (the 101).
The economist's job is to explain what has happened in the past.

I had T1X on order for 3 months and when i rang to get an update on arrival i was told March 2019. I bought the Lithgow instead. Probably better supporting the local product anyway :)

Buy the one you find more aesthetically pleasing. You can split hairs here all day. The Lithgow is an excellent rifle. Judging by Tikka centrefires I'm sure the T1 will also be very good.
Most rifles easily outperform the shooter. These sort of questions are usually heavily biased by who is answering the question.
Just buy the one you like the look of.

Was talking to my local dealer today who told me the T1X has over 800 on back order. So I'd say March is about right as long as there's no recalls.

Yeah I'm probably leaning towards a second hand CZ or Sako, there's a few good options at my LGS, just need my licence to be processed etc. so I can get down there and shoulder a few!

Don't wait for your licence, drop into your local range as I did. Heaps of ppl are more than happy for you to shoulder theirs and even fire some rounds. That's how I tried the LA101 along with 50 rounds from a very generous member. Loved it and just ordered one.

Yeah that's on the menu when the Uni semester finishes in a fortnight, should have a weekend free to catch up with a mate down the local 50m range. I went out yesterday morning with a mate for a couple of hours and his old Stirling which is fun to shoot but is heavy and not the most accurate thing around, at 50m with open sights only got 4/10 shots on the bunny target we had, we also had a heap of fun with a bunch of clays set on the hill from 60-80 metres away and usually we got 3/10 shots on the clays so that was a good challenge.
