Tikka TAC A1

Tier One Scope Mounts

Not much point having great optics and cheap mounting. A real case of buy once, cry once. The Tier One Monomount (also known as the Unimount).

Adjusting the trigger on the Tikka TAC A1

I have seen a little misinformation on this one - so here it is. No. You don't need to pull a Tikka TAC A1 apart to adjust the trigger.

Replacing the Tikka Bolt Handle

Changing a Tikka Bolt handle is really for aesthetics. Especially on something like the Tikka TAC A1 - which already has an 'oversized' tactical style bolt knob on it - it's certainly not something that is going to improve your grouping. However, we like to tinker, and, it's a great excuse to pull the bolt apart and clean it.

TAC A1 – ammo thoughts

A firearm and optics are only part of a system – you also need something to shoot through it! So, after a couple of days getting familiar with the lighter trigger through dryfire, it was time to make some noise.

A trip to the top of the Coromandel

To me, the true Coromandel is only reached once you have passed through, well, Coromandel - actually - even higher - with Colville (northernmost town of any note on the peninsula) representing a homecoming of sorts.

The Tikka Strata in 300WSM – one gun to rule them all?

The Tikka T3X Superlite is a familiar firearm to many New Zealand Hunters. Take the 'standard' T3X, flute the barrel and you have the Superlite. I recently had a Strada to set up for a client and took the opportunity (with the client's permission of course) to have a bit of a play.

PracMed Stop The Bleed Course

Hopefully, by now, I have gotten across the importance of first aid training to all of you.

As ambassadors for tramping, hunting, and just being nice human beings, there are some basic principles we should all be applying A lot of this comes down to one simple principle - consideration for others. Consideration for others is the simplest and best guide for co-inhabiting a hut. It is not a bad starting point for humanity either.
