A freind of mine say's Tikko is a poor mans version of Sako. He claims Sako is built to better tolerances, and madw out of better materials that Tikko. I was looking at both rifles today because of his constant urging to add a long range rifle to my collection. (As it stands right now my collection consists of short to medium range platforms.) His father was a sniper in the marines, and their doctrin was deeply engraved in my freind. I however was raised around vets that only had contact at close range, hence my collection. Now back to my question......which one is better? I realy liked the look of the Tikko and it felt good to me (I know that should be the answer to my question), But I also dont like having second best. So help me out thanks.
