I think the Tikka trigger is the best factory option out there. You, Form and others have talked about it’s reliability in tough conditions and I wholeheartedly agree. But it’s just a really nice trigger to use as well. The adjustment screw is easy to use and the result is a very nice crisp single stage trigger. Mine breaks cleanly with no creep and very little over travel at 1.8#.'As long as it works"
A Tikka will out WORK any 700 clones because of the trigger. I've had issues with Jewells, Timney, and Trigger Techs in 700 clones. I still use 700 clones because I love big 30 cals. If Tikka ever made a real long action, I would be done with 700 clones.
The action is smoother than anything else I can think of. Lots of people get grumpy at the one action length, but a Tikka in 308 is as light or lighter that any factory option I can think of except for two that are designed to be ultralight alternatives.
The factory Tupperware stock is light, yet adequately stiff. I like the replaceable grips. The one place, I’d like to see them make changes here is to add the removable comb riser like they have on the CTR stocks.
Finally, the rough tech and camo versions were kind of a miss for me as they added weight and barrel girth and coated the stock without addressing the comb issue. I am mostly a fan of the standard T3x version with the black stock and the unfluted barrel. The latter is a big deal for me because I’m likely to cut and thread it, and fluting makes that harder.
