HI, this is my first post! I just purchased this LSA 55 #550-116717 tikka/Ithaca in .308, Bofors Barrel Steel on left side of barrel. It was on a used gun rack at a large sporting goods store.The gun guy gave me a discount on it because it had been there over 90 days.I payed 430.00 for it. Despite some very small flaws in the bluing and one slight dent in the stock it looks perfect.I am not an expert but I have been a gun user for 30 years and I don't think this pretty little thing has ever been fired. It has the rather rude rings that came with it,one 6-32 hole was striped so I welded it up and re drilled and taped and cold blued it.It has a scope,a Redfield 4x that also looks vary nice.I know that Sako anb Tikka were competing companies but they look vary similar. Finn style? The finish on the metal looks a mile deep. I'm looking forward to shooting it soon,I guess I'll need to brake in the barrel!
