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.
Tikka T3x Tac A1 is a special version of Tikka T3x rifle series, which is adapted for military use, compared to the other T3x rifles, which are usually considered as hunting line of rifles. It has interchangeable pistol grips, that allow the user to adjust the angle of the grip, although these grips are sold separately. Even though the rifle has a detachable magazine that can store 10 cartridges, Tikka widened the angular ejection port for the sake of simplification of inserting one cartridge at a time. The rifle barrel is surrounded with a tube, which has M-LOK holes all around the tube. On top, it has a 0 MOA Picatinny rail over the whole length of the tube for rifle scope mounting purpose.

As far as the repeatable detachable mounts are concerned, one great option to consider would be quick release INNOmount monoblock.
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.
