Tikka website says T1 is available in left hand version. Anyone know if there are any in the US?

I like to use the 140 gr Hybrid from Berger in my .260 Rem.  It has a 8.5 twist, but then I shoot at 5000' elevation.

OK, I know this sounds crazy as I have never heard of nor experienced a Tikka T series trigger that has creep ......... but I now own one. 

I have owned/own a total of 7 Tikkas (T3, T3X, T1X) and all of the triggers have been fantastic, virtually creep free and clean crisp break.

Just picked up a T1X and had it out at the range yesterday, ran about 100 rounds through it and I can say I am very disappointed in this trigger.  It is supposed to be the same trigger in this (T1X) that the T3X comes with, and maybe it is, but it must have been built on a Friday before a long weekend near the end of the shift....lol.  This thing has a lot of crunchy creep and just does not feel good.  Hasn't changed from the first round to the last round.  I've put in a request to Tikka warranty but who knows if anything will be done.

Anyone else experience anything like this ever?  Any solution?  Will it get better?

Thanks

Its really the other way around...

Tikka rifles are basically a stripped down where they can cheaper version of the Sako platform.
Sako offers both a true long and short action where Tikka is built on a long action.
Sako has other improvements on the bolt, and gives you a 3 position safety where Tikka is only a 2 position.

Tikka is Sako's budget brand that is a great performing rifle on its own without the price tag of its big brother.

Did the "platform" come from the T-3?  Or from the Sako TRG? 

It's got more similarities with the TRG then the T-3.

I think he means the platform came from the T3 but all aspects are improved for the Sako line.

The S20 action is kinda T3 rip-off by Sako but that just goes to show how good the venerable T3 is. Hard to make it any better without upping the price .. :-)
That said i´ve already ordered a S20 Precision in 6.5 CRD , although i´ll toss the OEM barrel and replace it with a 66 cm Krieger LP in 6mm Norma BR. And about them (Tikka) been able to sell more rifles if that UPR would´ve been made earlier : Tikka has sold all the T3´s they´ve made since the dawn of that model so i don´t think that is of any concern to them actually .. ;-)

I agree about the mag pricing (although those only cost 99 € over here) and the build quality could´ve been better. The mags feel cheapo ...

How is it kind of a rip off of the T-3 action?  I don't see it myself.  The S20 has a three lug bolt and integral picatinny rail.  T-3 has neither.  The S20 sits in a v-block bedding system, the T-3 doesn't.  So where are the similarities that I am obviously missing?
