Before I purchased the Tikka T3 I really did not know much about it. I had a Howa 1500 in 30-06, and I was fairly happy with it until I got the Tikka. The Tikka is much lighter and the quality is far better than Howa. Both Howa and Tikka are about the same, price wise, but Tikka is far better than Howa in weight, balance and craftmanship. - F. F.
I have owned this rifle for years now. It is the best of the Remington line of pump 30-06. Extremely accurate. It has a beautiful stock with engravings. It is very light as compared to other rifles with longer barrels. I highly recommend this to any hunter or collector that appreciates a quality product. - G. E.
