Yes I’m pretty keen to hear about them and better still, see one. I am in the market for a new .22LR.

A few more reviews of the Ruger on Rimfirecentral but I still haven't seen anything from Tikka owners yet.



In general how do people think they shape up...?

It looks like it's more than capable. Some are seeing sub-MoA straight out of the box.

I take it they’re still not available in Australia yet?

So there poses the question.
Does one wait and see what they’re like or go and buy a Lithgow LA101?

The LA101 are proven excellent rifles. Despite a few production hiccups and the occasional dud. Issues have by and large been ironed out now.

Tikka has big shoes to fill to surpass the Lithgow. At its current price point the Tikka would do well to be equal in performance.

Had the Lithgow and it could shoot good to 50mtr but was over the loading/feeding issues, I dont think Tikka would be average it should be great, and I have others and that means interchangeability.

Are there other Tikka rimfires that this is likely to have interchangeability with?

The Tikka rimfire use the same stock as the centre fire models. So if you have other Tikka T3 stocks or Chassis systems they are interchangeable.

I had a lithgow 101 with those same feeding and ejecting issues so traded it in on an Anschutz now it just feeds and ejects perfectly, I too am waiting to see just how good these tx1's are. even though they have a plastic mag I bet they feed. as said before they have a full size interchangeable stock, plus that action looks stiffer than an anschutz 54 !!!!

The Anschutz 54 action is actually not that stiff. I had one that I bought second hand that had a bubbered bedding job and if the action screws were tightened down too much. It caused problems as in the safety didn't work properly the bolt had an issue I cant remember exactly what. once I determined what it was it went back ASAP couldn't get it out the door quick enough. It didn't shoot that great either, probably why it got butchered trying to get it to shoot better.

Have another one now and it works and shoots flawlessly.

No offence but that's the worst looking rifle i've ever seen

Besides it's a centerfire not a rimfire

Doesn't offend me Chronos, I didn't design it.
I must admit the vertical pistol grip doesn't get my juices flowing either, but the specs look good and after watching a video of testing in the US @ 1 mile, I could learn to live with it.
