Beretta unveiled it’s new Tikka T3X TAC A1 tactical bolt-action rifle at SHOT Show 2017.
Tikka rifles are made in Finland. According to Tikka’s website, their new product brings to the table a revolution in terms of value-for-money, especially when one considers the outstanding accuracy over long ranges.
The TAC A1 features a “very smooth, very dependable” Tikka bolt action, according to kitup.military.com, and a two-stage trigger that can be adjusted. “One of the things that is obviously very important with this rifle is durability,” said Philip Jones, rifle product manager at Beretta USA, Tikka’s US distributing affiliate. “If you look at the AR-compatible stock on this gun, it is a machined- aluminum piece with a steel hinge.”
The folding stock has a monopod mount, height-adjustable buttplate, a cheek piece that can be adjusted for both height and angle. There are spacers included in the box so the length of pull can be increased by 75 inches, Jones said.
The TAC A1 uses a proprietary 10-round steel magazine. The buyer will get three with the rifle, two in the box and one more once it’s registered with Beretta, Jones said.
It has a Sako-made, hammer-forged Tikka barrel and a full-length Picatinny rail along the top of the handguard as well as MLOK attachment points. A removable muzzle compensator is also included.
The TAC A1 is available in .308 Winchester with either 16-inch or 20-inch barrel lengths, .260 Remington with either 20-inch or 24-inch barrel lengths and 6.5mm Creedmoor with a 24-inch barrel.
Jones added about the latest technology: “It’s a game-changer,” “As far as precision rifles go, we think this is really going to set an innovative new standard”.
