I have never owned one.
But several friends have them and like them.

I suspect that it is like packs. Certain brands are popular for awhile and than every body starts after the next great thing.

The guys selling may have had them awhile and now are ready to try something new.

That's like asking why so many Ford trucks for sale.  It's because there's a billion of them out there.

They are so popular that there are lots for sale. I own several and have sold several. Just change calibers etc.
They are a good shooting gun far from junk.

I think if you look at the round count and caliber you can see a correlation. Some calibers are not as fun to shoot especially with a light rifle.

Pretty sure the people who hate them have never shot them.  They're light, smooth, DEADLY ACCURATE!  I have two, one in 300wsm, the other in 7mm-08 and love them both.  Each will shoot one ragged 5 shot group at 100yds with hand loads.

Whackmaster, Jackall asked some pretty relevant questions about your rifle that remain unanswered (round count, accuracy, rings) jsyk. I imagine there are others like me who would want to know this before committing to anything.

Tikka (and sister company Sako) are great quality rifles with very good accuracy.  Large volume manufacturing at reasonable pricing, generally results in higher quantity of sales....and thus re-sales (there are just more out there).

Plus, most Tikkas I see for sale are the powerful calibers.  300WSM, 300WM, 338WM, etc.   Perhaps people have decided they want a heavier gun for such calibers.  I see fewer smaller caliber Tikka for sale on most websites in comparison.

I have had many rifles in my 50 years of hunting. Winchester model 70, weatherby, Remington, browning Abolt , but Tikka is my favorite. I bought a Tikka in .338 win mag about 10 years ago. It is light weight and very accurate. I would never sell it.

I think this holds true for a lot of heavy calibers.  There seem to be a lot of mags for sale in many models.  I think a lot of guys bought magnums and realized that they can't shoot them comfortably, so up for sale they go.

I have a 25-06 Tikka and with it being so lightweight, it will belt you with a hot load.  However, I love the firearm and I've never had a problem with flinching or heavy recoil.  I put a Limbsaver pad on it and it made a world of difference.  It's a great, affordable firearm, very accurate, and lightweight.  I have a bunch of Remington 700s, but the Tikka goes with me deer hunting most of the time.  I'd not hesitate to buy another.  Just go with a 7mm-08 or 308 for a short action with plenty of punch.

I have a Tikka 270 wsm and it is the most accurate rifle I own. It is my go-to rifle but the stock feels kinda cheapo, but the gun is also very light to carry.

That sounds like a review from a owner.

I have 2 T-3 lites ones a .270 WSM and the other is a .300 WSM both are deadly accurate and have NEVER failed even the the worst weather! The one thing that does suck on them is the stock with that being said a B/C medalist stock makes these rifles perfect

Sound's like questions I should of asked before buying it didn't know they where round sensitive so I'm the "that guy"

Lots of people read the reviews and buy Tikka's.  After talking to buddies, reading write-ups etc., end up with a larger caliber.  I know the light rifles in a large caliber can kick like a mule.  Unless you invest in a few after market options, they can be no fun for some people to shoot.  I know this is a reason some get rid of them.

I have 5 of them and love them.  .223, .22-250, .7mm-08, .270, .7mm.  The only one that isn't to fun to shoot is the .7mm.

My go to the last couple years is a Tikka t3 300wsm. Does it kick? Yeah a little  :chuckle: but I've beat the snot out of it and it never fails to shoot a great group with the cheapest ammo you can throw in it. I wouldn't be afraid of owning another. For the price, reliability, and how easy they are to find, it seems they are hard to beat.

I suspect that most Tikka owners trying to sell are just looking to upgrade to a Savage.   8)

On a more serious note, the guys I know that have them have never complained.

I bought a Tikka 25-06 last year and I just love it, I hear a lot of people complain about the stocks but I never worry about scratching or dinging mine up, stainless synthetic for the wet side and I'm good to go.

The stocks are what they are ! I've never worried about scratching or dinging a rifle it's a tool .
But with the larger calibers they have a kick and if you put a quality stock on like a B/C stock it calms it down a lot and you will find that your very impressive shot groups will even get better!  :twocents:

seems like a lot of it is trying to cash out and try the "next big thing".  i remember when savage and tikka were the budget rifle...the manufacturers seemed to notice and ratchet up the price(when was the last time you could get a new savage 110 for 300 bucks?).  now it's the ruger RAR.

i do also notice everyone trying to sell their magnum calibers.  bravado aside, i wouldn't want a .300 or 338 win in a 6 1/2lb rifle either.

From reading people have tried the 300WSSM. Best I can gather is its not any better than a 308. Interesting either way though.

Wow the 300wssm is a real thing I guess. Just looked it up. I was just figuring it was a typo and I was joking around. Guess it's a real round.

Yep, I thought the same until I looked it up. I'm still curious if he actually has the 300wssm.

While there are .223, .243, and a .25 caliber Winchester Super Short Magnums, I don't think there is a 30 caliber WSSM.  At least not yet.  I may be mistaken, but I couldn't find any info on a 30 cal.

Yeah, it's surely not a factory cartridge. Would have to be a wildcat. I'm pretty sure campmeat meant to say WSM.

I have a Tikka 300 mag and it kicks harder than my old Ruger 338 which was a heavy gun so I had to get a recoil pad because it will jump out of your hand sometimes. Overall it's a great gun but shoot the big caliber first before you buy

Not bad guns and shoot suprisingly well off the shelf. But still a gun that was made for the budget minded. Horrible plastic trigger among other cheap parts. I think most that bought them are stepping up. The guys that buy the really cheap Savages or Rugers are not for the most part the guys that would have bought Tikkas in the fist place.
