Our Assessment: Known originally as Tikkakoski, a company that sold a myriad of consumer goods and textiles, Tikka as it is better known made firearms as well under ownership of SAKO, another Finnish arms company. Tikkakoski is long defunct, but firearms are produced to this day under the Tikka brand name by Beretta USA. Reliable, inexpensive, and handsome, Tikka rifles are a favorite among modern shooters. Notably, this T3x is for left handed shooters, making for a rarer piece! Chambered for the incredibly popular .308 Winchester, the winning bidder will have for themselves a capable rifle, perfect for medium sized game such as white tail deer, or even a black bear. Good luck and happy bidding!
