It took 3 months to process but I finally got my license and put an order down on a 2021 Tikka Super Varmint in 6.5CM. I like the look of the Cerakote finish and the fluted bolt. I’m also keen on the 2 stage trigger, with this being the first time it’s been available outside of the TAC A1.
With that being said, while the stock has some nice features such as an adjustable cheek rest, buttpad and wider forend, from what I understand it’s quite light. Once I have a feel for the gun and get used to shooting over the next 4-6 months, I feel that I’m going to want to upgrade this stock to something heavier and more stable without spending a ton. Even if it’s not entirely necessary, it’ll be nice to somewhat customize a rifle that already comes with all the features I could possibly need. I’m not too fussed on whether it’s a chassis or stock and I’d probably like to keep the budget under $800. Does anyone have suggestions?
