What is my Tikka Worth?

Historical Context

Born in the vast forests of Finland, Tikka rifles have cemented themselves as an excellent choice for hunters and law enforcement in need of an accurate and durable rifle. Tikka started in the firearms industry by refurbishing Mosin-Nagant rifles and producing sub-machine guns during the Interwar Years. After the war, they became known for producing bolt action rifles intended for hunting use. Tikka has also caught the attention of a number of law enforcement units such as the Canadian Rangers, French National Gendarmerie and the Indian Marine Commandos who deploy Tikka rifles in a marksman role.

Determining Value

Despite now being manufactured by Sako, Tikka rifles are still produced and new variants and calibers are frequently offered. From a used market perspective there are a number of nuances that can affect the value of a Tikka rifle. One nuance is the caliber that the rifle fires. Generally speaking, larger calibers such as 9.3x62mm or .338 Winchester Magnum will net a greater value than standard calibers such as .223 Remington or .308 Winchester. Different models will also have different values. For example, the tactical model T3x Tact A1 will sell for significantly more than the standard hunting models on the used market. Surprisingly, despite their rarity, the old Tikka Models M55 and M65 are selling for similar amounts as their modern counterpart the T3x.

A major factor in determining value for any firearm comes from the condition of the gun. If it is in mint condition with little finish wear from handling, the gun can retain a good portion of its retail value. If more usage is apparent and the gun has scuffs, dents or scratches, the value will lower with each imperfection. Same goes with the metal parts, the more scratches and faded bluing finish that becomes present on the gun from handling and usage can greatly diminish its value. The takeaway is that as the condition of the firearm worsens, the less it will be worth when re-sold.

Another factor that contributes to a re-sale value is the firearm’s originality. Please note that as a collectors piece, the value of Tikka rifles are greater if they retain the original finish. Another nuance is whether all the parts of the firearm have the same serial numbers.
