posted on November 20, 2020
Tikka celebrates a rich mechanical-engineering history dating back to the late 19th century, having manufactured items such as sewing machines and bolt-action rifles. It took more than 100 years for the company to come to market with a rimfire rifle, and the T1X Multitask Rimfire (MTR) is Tikka’s first foray into this market that attracts nearly every shooter demographic.

Boosting the accuracy potential of the T1X MTR is a cold-hammer-forged steel barrel. Tikka provides options for 16” or 20”, as well a chambering choice of either .17 HMR or .22 Long Rifle and 1/2x28 t.p.i. muzzle threading comes standard. Tikka’s well-known single-stage trigger come standard with the T1X MTR that minimizes lock time while providing a smooth action for the benefit of great accuracy on target.

The tang-mounted, forward-to-fire safety is intuitive and the gun’s balance and weight combination is suitable for all-day, walk-around-type hunts or long days spent plinking at targets.
