Default Difference Between Tikka Hunter and Tikka Lite

Can someone tell me what the difference between the Tikka Hunter and Tikka Lite? Is it simply that the Hunter has a wod stock and the Lite has a synthetic stock? Thanks!

and the light is a very very light gun....Most of the light ones i have seen have stainless barrels, but that might just be my local dealer.

Both are SOLID firearms that boast sub MOA accuracy right out of the box. I have a hard time looking at alot of these new guns with their beautiful finishes and wonder how i could take them out in the woods or in the rain...The Tikka T3 Hunter is alot more no frills and doesnt strike me like that.

I would not hesitate to buy or own either gun...Id go pick one up and see how it feels. I know i want one in 300wsm or 300win mag.

Just remember that because it is so light, it will do a number on your shoulder. I have one in 7mm rem mag and after 10 shots yesterday, I felt like I had pitched 9 innings.

I have a T3 Lite Stainless in 300 WSM. It is slightly harsh on your shoulder. ONe of the guys i hunt with shoots a Ruger no.1 in 300 Weatherby and will not shoot my Tikka because it has so much recoil.

Thanks for the feedback. Tikka must have some typo's on their website because the T3 Hunter (6.1 lbs) is supposedly lighter that the T3 Lite Synthetic(6.44 lbs) and the T3 Lite Synthetic Stainless (6lb 3oz) in .270.

Also seems like the barrel length (24 3/8) is not correct for the T3 Lite Synthetic in 7mm-08.The T3 Hunter and T3 Lite Synthetic Stainless have a barrel length of 22 7/16.

OK... so I'm a little obsessive compulsive.

I just weighed my T3 Lite Stainless and with a Nikon Buckmaster 3x-9x scope and mounts and all it was 7.1 pounds. There was no ammo in the gun and no sling in that weight.
