Affordable Quality. Unmatched Accuracy... Tikka is owned and manufactured by Sako in Finland. Even though the word "tikka" in Finnish translates to "woodpecker", it actually has no correlation to the Scandinavian firearms company's trade name. In reality, the business name Tikka is short for Tikkakoski, named after the district in Finland where the factory is located.

Founded in 1893 by Martin Stenij, Tikkakoski was originally a metal workshop that eventually experienced a change of ownership in 1930 and was subsequently purchased by German arms dealer Willi Daugs. The following year, production of the Suomi KP/31 submachine gun began.

After 1933, Tikkakoski commenced with production of Maxim machine guns, along with machine gun ammo belts. Throughout World War II, the company continued to produce submachine guns, machine guns, and barrels. Following the war, Tikkakoski's assets were seized by the Soviet Union as they were considered a German company and firearms manufacturing was subsequently halted.

Instead, Tikkakoski went from from the business of producing military grade machine guns, to the manufacture of sewing machines. In 1957 the company was purchased back from the Soviets by a group of Finnish investors and in 1983, after 100- years in business, Tikka merged with Sako to form "Oy Sako-Tikka Ab". Interestingly, not only has Tikka been in business longer than its sister company, but they also started producing firearms earlier than Sako.

At the heart of the Tikka T1x MTR design is an incredibly smooth action that feeds like butter. The bolt is slick and glides back and forth effortlessly without the grinding or binding often associated with other actions. In fact, it gives the rifle a distinct feel of pure quality. Both the bolt and bearing surfaces inside the receiver are highly polished, allowing the bolt to slide effortlessly.

A separate bolt handle with a hollow pear shaped bolt knob is dovetailed into the body and acts as a retainer for the firing pin and spring-- made of stainless steel and then Teflon coated. A metallic shroud, new for the T1x, rides on the back of the bolt and acts as a cocking piece that is attached to the firing pin, which also serves as the cocking indicator.

Another notable feature on the Tikka T1x MTR is the excellent single stage trigger that is constructed of special steel and is user adjustable from 2 to 4 pounds. The two position safety locks both bolt and trigger.


A weather resistant black synthetic stock has sleek and distinctive lines
, and receives many updates in the T1x line. The pistol grip is interchangeable, making it possible to modify the grip angle, and there is an attachment point toward the front that allows the width of the forend to be adjusted as well. All grip surfaces receive a new, asymmetrical grip pattern and shape that gives a sold grip in all conditions.

Constructed of steel stock, the recoil lug has an insert that engages the receiver slot underneath the action. These steel recoil lugs have minimal deformation, even with large calibers, which is especially impressive when compared to the aluminum lugs used by many other manufacturers.

The deep blued finish has been professionally done and as the name implies, this is the T1x Lite, so the rifle weighs in at mere 6 pounds empty. It has a thick walled carbon steel receiver cut to exacting tolerances by the same workers and on the same CNC machines that are used to produce Sako actions.

The T1x's cold hammer forged barrel is medium contour and measures 20.5- inches for maximum maneuverability in tight areas like a blind, while still maintaining terminal ballistics down range. While the rifle does not include iron sights, the receiver features a 17mm integral dovetailed rail and the T1x receiver has extra screw placements, making it even easier to mount the shooter's optic of choice.

For service and repair, the Hunter is backed by a 2- year factory warranty. The Tikka T1x Lite is the next evolution of a rifle line that is considered one of the absolute best buys on the market with an outstanding reputation for accuracy, high quality and superior craftsmanship for every rifle that leaves the factory.
