    Anyone have experience with these? I picked one up on a trade this past spring and am absolutely crushing the clay birds with it. I've been shooting trap for a few years with my Wingmaster 30" Full choke and did OK, averaging 18-20. First time out with the Tikka and I shot my first ever 25 at trap. Since then I haven't scored anything lower than a 23.

    Anyone else really diggin these guns?

    I have a 412S with 28" barrels and some choke tubes. I used to be into them heavily and had dozens of them and many more barrel sets. I bought, sold and traded in them for 15 years as a hobby.

    I still have a 12ga/30-06 barrel set and two scope mount sets.

    I took this kuku with a Tikka version in 12ga and 9,3X74R.

    This was the set I took over, 12/9,3X74R and O/U 9,3X74R, both scoped. This receiver had double triggers for dangerous game hunting.

    These are amazing guns, but a little heavy.

    CONGRATULATIONS on the start of a set you can build, as you find other barrel sets! :cool:

    Thanks for the pics! Very nice. I've looked and tried to find other barrel sets, but haven't had any luck. For now, its making an excellent clays gun.

    Man, those barrel sets are nice (and expensive). I'd really like a 20ga/20ga set for hunting.

    I have one

    I have a Tikka 412S o/u 12 ga./12ga. I've never used it plus I believe it has never been fired. I would be willing to sell.
