I totally agree. My rar 22wmr is pretty damn accurate.

Was able to swap stocks. It took a little more motivation than I originally thought, as the receiver just forward of the chamber seems wider than the T3. But now it’s just like my other Tikkas, Limbsaver pad and all.

so was it indeed a drop-in fit or by motivation do you mean you had to motivate a lil sand paper to get the barrel to fit in the channel?

I’m thinking sandpaper was the method. The motivation was made possible by a good Scotch. Pics of the work Pharm if possible. 😎

By motivation I mean force. If you look closely at the pic, you’ll see a metal protrusion that runs forward of the chamber. This protrusion didn’t fit into the stock channel without a surprising amount of downward force. And no, I wasn’t misaligning the recoil lug slot. No sandpaper.
The bedding screws pulled the action down nicely. The barrel is floated back to the recoil lug.

I have the trigger adjusted, the accuracy compared to CZ 452 and 455 is dismal to pathetic. I have tried two scopes , different ammo and it is ridiculously bad. I might end up just trading it to a gunshop just to get rid of it.


You need to call Ruger and send it to them. They made it , let them.make it right. You will be doing them a favor.The only way their product consistency will improve is if they have to fix them..

The RAR .22LR sporter I had when shot litterally side by side with a very accurate 2016 CZ452 was so close in terms of grouping most folks here would not tell them apart.

Litterally 1/8" separated the overall group averages at 50 yards and many loads shot identically. My Ruger liked CCI mini Mags

What caliber was yoir RAR chambered in?



I know they are good at backing their products, this one is a dog. I might end up doing that


If it is that bad, you should send it in.

They will issue you a call.tag and should pay the freight both ways.



Just got off the phone with them and that is what they are doing. Thanks for the info, I had it sitting in timeout in the safe . I will report back when I get it back from them

Hey, guys!

What's the deal with the 'plastic piece' in front of the chamber area? I looked @ one today in .17HMR for $468. and I could not figure out what it was, nor did the salesman? (It had a trigger lock on it. I assume that's what the lawyers make them do these days?)

A nice little rimfire. I do wish they would make a 5 rd. magazine that would fit flush with the bottom of the stock, however! Thank you for any comments on the 'plastic piece'. I know little about them, I admit it.

The plastic piece your referring to is to fill the gap between the stock and barrel. The same stock is used for the T1X as the T3x , only 2 differences that I’m aware of........ the plastic barrel filler and the plastic butt verses the rubber butt pad

mistem,

Thank you for your reply, I appreciate it! I assume it would look pretty much like a gap on each side of the barrel, IF the plastic piece was not in place then? I intend to check the rifle out again shortly - a bit more closely this time. (If Tikka made a stock to match the barrel profile of the rimfire, T1X, I suppose the cost would have been too much for a new mold?)

Thanks again...!

I tell you what, this thing is a nutria killing machine. I am very impressed with it. It’s set up just like my hunting rifles. I am convinced that it will drastically increase my shooting skills.

Mine is supposedly enroute to my FFL. Scheduled to be there tomorrow. Hope to pick it up Saturday...

Shot a good bit of “Swamp rats” here in LA as a kid with a BSA Meteor .177. Most under 50 yds.

Looks good - what scope replaced the VX-2?

Pharmseller,

Nutria or muskrats??? I didn't know we had nutria out West.

BTW, just put a T1x on layaway at Sportman's tonight. I think their price was even a little better than the "pre-buy" price here on the 'fire. I was trying to stay strong but a local store put their Hornady 17HMR ammo on sale for $9 a box and I folded like a house of cards! Oh well... looking forward to introducing it to some jackrabbits in 2019!
