The Tikka T3 Lite from Beretta USA is designed for the dense woods or tree stand whitetail hunter and has a quick-handling, free-floated 22 7/16-inch barrel in non-magnum calibers.
It weighs just 6.44 pounds. It features a fiberglass-reinforced black polymer stock with a straight comb and ambidextrous palm-swell, matte blued metal finish, rubber recoil pad, detachable three-round magazine, two-position safety, and adjustable single-stage trigger. Available chamberings include most popular short-action and long-action whitetail cartridges, from .243 Winchester to .300 WinMag, at a standard recommended retail price of only $575. Left-hand models are available.
