Tikka M65A .308Win

Post by Samppa V » Sun Oct 28, 2007 9:34 am

Got one Tikka M65A rifle, forefather of Sako TRG, a cousin of Valmet Snipers.
Very few were made, prices ranges here in Finland between EUR1500 to 2K+.
I was only lucky to get one, someone might get a bargain of it :!:

I would love to see versions of the Finnish M85 Sniper Rifle come up for sale. I would even like for someone to accumulate all the conversion parts so I could have a gunsmith modify a Mosin Nagant to this rifle.

Looks pretty neat, seen pictures of it in Rifles of the White Death by Bowser.

Any chance of getting parts for these M85 rifles Samppa??

bags, not others

Only the riflebags for M85 snipersystem, have been sold to public, it's still regarded as "military item", so it's not going to be sold before army make them obsolete, sorry.
