1. For reasons unknown to us at SCC, it seems that SCC members who are AT&T users experience issues with emails and personal messages when using our forum. This is not unique to SCC and several other internet sites are reporting the same issues. Todo10, the company who helps us with the forum and hosting, have file a complaint with AT&T but we are not convinced AT&T will do anything about it. The only way around this is to register and use another email address not connected to AT&T. We are sorry for any inconveniences this might cause!

    Anyone have one of these? I just picked up one. It has the blued bolt and rounded forend. So I figure it's one of the later ones made after the Sako take over.

    Tikka 308

    The short action Tikka of that generation was a model 55.......model 65 was the long action.
    You have a nice rifle..........my 55 deluxe in 243 is pretty much my favourite in the safe.......you are going to like the trigger/action on yours.
    They were made pre Sako.
    Merry Christmas.
    Pete

    PS .......I am looking for a m65 deluxe in 270 to go with my 243.........let me know if you see one which might be available.

    The LSA 65 (long action) & the LSA 55 (short action) were made by Tikka when they were independent of Sako. If yours is in 308 Win it is a LSA 55. The first Tikkas made under the Sako umbrella were the Models 558 & 658, which had the polymer bolt sleeve. If memory serves me correctly this was in the late 80's or early 90's. The were succeeded by the Models 595 & 695, which have since been replaced by the T3. The T3 comes in only one action length (long) regardless of caliber.

    As identified elsewhere and confirmed several times .... Tikka did make an m65 in 308 as well as the m55 308w chambering. I do not know which of the several models of the long action m65 were chambered in 308 ... but certainly at least one.
