Just a quick note to let you all know that Blown-Up Sako stainless barrel is the reason being given by Beretta Australia. for a recall of some calibres of stainless Tikka rifles in the T-3 line . My Stainless/Lite Synthetic in .243w appears to have something wrong with the stainless steel. I recieved a letter From Beretta Aust. a few weeks ago asking me to promptly return the rifle to them... "As to fire the rifle may cause serious injury to yourself or others" It seems once they have all the offending calibres gathered up(Beretta wont tell me what calibres these are??) they are to be shipped off to the Tikka or Sako factory in Finland for testing. They can not tell me if this involves a new barrel,just testing the present barrel or a total replacment of the whole rifle. One things for sure, I'm rifle-less for quite a long time I'd assume. I was curious if this is happening in any other parts of the world?? and would love to hear your version of Beretta's story.
