My first PTA just cleared so now I'm just waiting for the paperwork to arrive in the mail. I'm brand new to shooting and I've just borrowed one of the rifles at the range for the couple of sessions I've had shooting. Now it's time to get my own rifle and I'm wondering what I should get. Sorry, I know this probably gets asked all the time, but can anyone give me some pros and cons of each rifle to help me out?
It's probably gonna be used mostly for target shooting and hopefully a bit of competitive shooting, but it might get put to use on a few bunnies if I can find a local property to do hunting on.
Ideally it will have a real wooden stock not laminate but I haven't completely ruled out synthetic. I would rather get a synthetic. Anyway with that said I guess the other question What will I actually be able to buy? It looks like these rifles are all very popular and low in stock in many places. For example it seems right now the CZ may be off limits for us unless we want the American model I really liked the look of the Royal with the full stock and 20" barrel but I don't want to wait until for it.
The Tikka T1X looks like great value for money, but like I said, not a huge fan of synthetic. Would love to hear your input, especially if you've got experience with these 3 rifles. I went to a weihrauch after that, beautiful build qaulity, the accuracy was average. But also not light enough as a carry around rifle. My current 22 is a CZ American that is extremely accurate, and with a replacement trigger spring has a pretty good trigger. I have a leupold rimfire scope on it which is great and has a ballistic drop recticle which I find very useful for long shots.
I hope you find some of this information useful. Stay safe and happy shooting. In saying that I have not had experience with the two new relative new comers being the T1x and the I did own a Brno Mod 2 though and wished I had never let it go.
I am not sure if the new CZ are as good. I currently have a Lithgow La and rate it highly, it is an accurate little thing and of course Australian made is a plus also.
If you do a search they may be a thread or two discussing these rifles from memory which may be of use to you mate. Let us know what you decide on and how it goes. Lt H Morant. I like a meaty rifle with a high comb for shooting from standing offhand. Given this, both the la and MTR are more appropriate for target shooting I feel.
Accuracy Comparisons Between Models

If your going to walk and plink bunnies, then weight may come into it.Questions regarding accuracy comparisons between different CZ rifles are often asked.
The answer is simple, all CZ rifles have the same quality premium hammer forged CZ barrel. This being said there are several factors influencing the accuracy realized from each individual rifle Varmint vs. American — While the barrels of both the CZ varmint and sporter weight models are of the same high quality, the varmint being the heavier and stiffer of the two is more forgiving over a wider range of loads than the thinner barreled sporter weight models. For example, given a selection of 10 different.
In general, the sporter weight barrel will be more sensitive to differences between the loads. Typically out of the same 10 different loads tested with the varmint weight barrel, it will only shoot at its best with 2 of the loads, while another 3 or 4 will shoot acceptably.
By starting with a quality action and premium barrel, the odds are stacked in your favor, making the search for the best accuracy combination easier. When using iron sights, a longer sight radius provides the capability for more precise aiming, which typically results in better accuracy given equivalent rifles. The fine crosshairs and magnification advantage provided by a quality scope will allow for even more precise aiming than a long sight radius. Shorter barrels are stiffer and inherently more accurate than longer barrels of the same diameter, so if the rifle will typically be shot with optics, the shorter barrel should have the accuracy advantage.
The trigger should not be discounted as it contributes considerably to the ability of the shooter to be accurate. The light, crisp pull of the CZ single set trigger found on theand models is a great asset to the accuracy potential of the shooter. The non SST triggers on the CZ and models are also fully adjustable for creep, over-travel and weight of pull. The triggers of the and lines provide smooth, weight adjustable pulls. Even though most CZ rifles are equipped with adjustable triggers, it is important to keep the competency level of the shooter in mind when setting up the rifle.
While a crisp or smooth pull will be helpful to all shooters, triggers should only be adjusted to lighter weights as the skill of the shooter becomes more advanced. Of course, the shooter is ultimately the largest factor in the accuracy realized on the target. Your email address will not be published.

T3x LITE.Print Thread. Hop To. Joined: Jul I sent it to Long Rifles Inc. I have a couple of Tikka's and I'm very satisfied with them. Nice trigger, and very, very accurate, but I'd like some feed back about the Cz from people that have one. Thank you, Mike. Joined: Jan Northern Michigan. What are looking for in terms of features Also Joined: Oct I have both, and have had several of each. Tikka's T3, T3x. The CZ's were all CZ's and has been said, apples and oranges.
Both are good rifles and accurate, but different in scope. Walnut and blue vice black and synthetic. I have a few of each. If you like Mausers then the CZ is for you. It is heavier then the Tikka, but very solid, and again walnut and blued steel.
I believe a much better built rifle. Both are very accurate. Tikkas are smooth and shoot good. Lots of plastic though. Joined: Dec Originally Posted by smithrjd. Yes, and actually CZ makes them in synthetic.
I don't know that I would call a CZ unrefined. We would need to know what models the OP is asking about. Both are nice rifles but I prefer the Tikka for accuracy and a nice light weight. Tikka refined? CZ rough?Invite your friends to the conversation. Become a sponsor - Advertise here.

Shooting Australia. Air rifles. Tikka t3x super lite stainless. Roll your own! Brno 22 Anschutz 96 Mauser 6. It's going to be super interesting to see how it groups; if it can rival the crossover rifles such as the la or the Brno Mod 2 or rugers i guessit could be a strong contender for silly-wet shooting. And it's cheaper. I hazard to guess it'll point well from standing due to the light, poly stock. What do the rugers weigh Blade? The economist's job is to explain what has happened in the past.
From the guys I know that shoot small bore they have barrels about 27 inch. I sort of wonder at what level of rifle construction do you start to be able to put the precision tag on it?
The tikka with its more traditional shape stock seems more of a serious tool. Accuracy wise, both remain untested in the public domain, so that remains to be seen.
Not sure it's really an apples for apples comparison. It depends what you want. I think the Tikka is more a competitor for the La or a heavy barreled CZ on price point and features. The American guns tend to like CCI ammo. Problem sloved! His Lithgow LA supplied to him by Legacy Sports did shoot a ragged one hole group at 50y with match ammo. Kinda disappointing really, I had put a deposit on the Ruger given that I'd have a few months before they landed here to see some reviews.
Seems to me its just a production RAR heavy barrel in a chassis. I'll probably divert my deposit into something more interesting now. Back to top.Forums New posts Trending Search forums.

Nov 26, 14 6 6. At the risk of bringing this up in one of the other current threads, and having it go completely sideways, I figured I would ask it here. For those that have the new Tikka T1x, do you see any discernible improvement over the CZ ? Reason I ask, is that I recently picked up a CZ, and before I go furterndown the rabbit hole of building it, I was curious on input.
In all likelihood, I will likely not change the barrel on it to a another caliber. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Mar 12, 69 midwest. They are both good options. I have a few friends with multiple custom Cz's, got another buddy who sold a anschutz smallbore match rifle with the intention of getting a CZ VPT until he handled my then stock Tikka T1x, he immediately left my house and went to the bank then scheels to get the Tikka, for essentially the same money would have spent on the VPT he built this and is talking about shooting a smallbore match or 2 under the fclass option it shoots that good on top of nrl22 and prs practice At the end of the day, they are both good guns with pluses and minuses and if you are sub moaa couple more cases of match ammo is the best investment IMO but I am glad I have my Tikka Reactions: bogeycentral.
EddieE Sergeant Belligerents. Mar 20, 83 Buy the T1x, keep the one that shoots better.
DFC General Belligerents. Nov 4, 56 34 Arizona. There is now and will always be more aftermarket accessories available for the CZ's than the Tikka.Forums New posts Trending Search forums.
