Scope mounts for Tikka M590

About the company

Tikkakoski was at first a metal workshop established in 1893 in Jyväskylä, Finland, which later, at the end of World War I in 1918 evolved into a factory that produced gun components. One of the most important guns of Tikka in the 20th century is most definitely Suomi KP/-31, which is regarded as one of the most successful submachine guns of World War II.

Tikkakoski and Sako cooperated on a prototype rifle series in 1981 and soon after that, Tikkakoski was acquired by Sako. By the end of the decade, the production of Tikka rifles has already shifted from Jyväskylä to Sako headquarters in Riihimäki. Tikka still holds on to their traditional gunsmith craftsmanship, visually inspecting every rifle barrel and then manually testing the rifle with test shots. In 2009 Beretta group took over Sako, which got Sako and Tikka access to the most advanced production methods.

About the rifle

It has a capacity of 4 rounds (1 in the barrel and 3 in the magazine). It has a 16.5 mm dovetail for mounting purpose, along with 4 tapped holes, 2 at the front and 2 at the back and one recoil notch. M590 has a continued dovetail in contrast to some similar models that came before and after M590, which have separated dovetail surface.

Which rifles have interchangeable mounts

One piece mounts for the following Tikka rifles,

  • M558/M658
  • M690
  • M595/M695
  • T3/T3x

which are meant to be installed on the 16,5 mm dovetail and make use of the recoil stopper will fit this rifle as well.

Another type of mounts which will fit this rifle are mounts for Tikka,

  • M55/M65

which are meant to make use of 4 tapped mounting holes, but only those that are without recoil stopper and those that have the recoil stopper offset to the back.

Our recommendation for mounts

Fixed mounts:

For fixed mounts on this rifle, we recommend Optilock Tikka Base mounting bases. We can insert rings onto these bases, but we must be careful, because Optilock rings are available only for 1inch (25.4mm), 30mm and 34mm diameter scope tubes. One special feature of the Optilock rings are the polymer inserts (except the 34mm ring, which does not include inserts), which prevent scratches on the scope. If we want to install scopes with rails or scopes with tube diameters other than these of Optilock rings, we need to reach for rings of other companies like Recknagel, EAW or Osuma, and they fit Optilock bases as well.

Detachable repeatable mounts:

For Tikka M590 repeatable mounts, we would recommend to first install Picatinny rails and then install any detachable repeatable mount that fits Picatinny rails on top of them.

If you would prefer to have detachable repeatable mounts without Picatinny rails, we would recommend MAKlassic pivot mounts.

Picatinny rails:

The best option for installation of Picatinny rails would be the rails of Tier-One.

It is worth mentioning, that these rails are made of aluminium, while the rifle receiver is made of steel, therefore the combination is not ideal, because of the mechanical reasons. More about that in our article:

Help us build our riflescope mounts database

If you have this rifle or any other rifle at home, we would really appreciate it if you could send us some photos of the rifle receiver (mounting surface of the rifle when there are no mounts installed), because it would help us expand our rifle mounts database. If you send us a photo of rifle receiver which we don’t already have, that would be of great value to us and we will definitely reward you for your help.
