Simpson LTD in Galesburg, IL, is probably the largest importer of used guns from Sweden.

*** I am not recommending Simpson LTD, just reporting that they are a large importer. ***

I think you would be far more pleased with a CZ that has two triggers and a safety than a Tikka with a hammer and a selector.. There are so many more advantages to triggers and a safety, main one instant selection of rifle or shotgun with out having to fiddle around with anything. Plus the fact if you want to scope it you can mount the scope low because you don't need to get your thumb under the scope to cock it.

I use combo guns and drillings to hunt coyotes quite a bit and reaching up to cock or change selector will put a coyote in high gear if he catches you doing it.


After the first shot the rest are just noise.

Make mine a Minaska

The Tikka Model 77K has double triggers, but they are hard to find. It is a much better gun than the cheaper, and easier to find CZ. The 77K is also a little heavier than the Tikka/Ithaca “Turkey Gun” and the barrels are an inch or so longer.

“Perfect” for me would have been the same weight and form factor as the “Turkey Gun”, it we can’t have it all, can we?!

I understand two triggers and a safety are probably better but I never had any issues with the single trigger and selecter I always kept it to rifle in most instances and if needed moved it to shotgun . I killed a lot of turkeys with them and never had any issues . Tikkas might be a little crude some might say but they are extremely accurate and well made in my opinion

I don’t think Tikkas are crude by any stretch of the imagination. Both of mine shoot like a bolt action rifle in the accuracy department (like a .222 should!)

I only bought the 77K because last Spring I found myself thinking “The only thing that could be improved on for my Turkey Gun was a double trigger” . . . And then I found the 77K.

This Valmet is a far better choice as a useful all around gun, IMO, but at $1,295.00 it's over priced by about $400.00. I've owned more than a few of these and traded up toward drillings, my drug of choice, but I never had one that didn't shoot little bugger-hole groups. The drawback is the 22HP ammo availability, however.
https://simpsonltd.com/valmet-212-z49366/

For the member who wants a 20/222 this combo with light loads would be a good second choice. The 20ga versions of the Tikka were not lighter than the 12 ga guns, no significant difference. These will also re-chamber to 3", which reduces the jolt of a HB 2 3'4" load with the former short forcing cone of the original. Scope mounts are the traditional SAKO dovetail type.

From 12/9,3X74R down to 12/222 every gun shot very accurately. I've used both SST and DT versions and have both. I like them equally for different types of hunting. If I'm bird hunting I prefer the SST, so the first pull is always the shotgun. I dead-centered a straight away on a francolin with a 9,3X74R using a DT gun.

Combination guns used for their purpose feel like cheating. wink

There are a BUNCH of Valmet and at least one Tikka combination guns coming up on Proxibid.com.

Most prices seem to starting at about $300, but some are more than a month away from auction day.
