POTD: NEW Tikka TACT A1 Concept & New Steiner M7Xi 2.9-20×50 MSR2

    New Steiner M7Xi 2.9-20x50 MSR2

    TFB’s Photo Of The Day is a bit different today. We happen to have not one but two world exclusives captured in one picture.

    First off we have a concept Tikka TACT A1, with a heavy stainless steel 24” barrel in 6.5 Creedmoor. The Stainless barrel looks magnificent and I almost forget that I tend to like Carbon Fiber barrels.

    The photograph comes from FinnAccuracy and is published here with their kind permission. As you can see, it was taken on a very rainy day, but these things are no safe queens.

    Did you know that the Tikka TAC changed the name to TACT in 2019?

    To crown the concept, there’s a new riflescope from Steiner, called M7Xi 2.9-20×50 with the MSR2 reticle. This scope has not yet been officially released.
