    If you guys frequent other gun forums you've probably already viewed these pics but I'll post anyway. Recall affects only stainless rifles manufactured from Feb. 2004 onward. The pics are pretty big and I cant resize since I'm not at home so I'll post a couple and link the rest.

    I think that would be considered WMD's

    possessing a tikka and a glock at the same time is considered intent to construct a destructive device by the ATF.

    there had to have been something lodged in the barrel to have that happen. that's simply insane

    It's due to bad metallurgy. Sako orginally wouldn't admit it was their fault but now theres a recall.

    the barrel failed.. ive seen this happen before on a stainless sako.. once the barrel fails, its splits, and like a chain reaction, breaks everything along its path..

    Damn, I have a Tikka. Not a stainless though. I guess I need to save up for a SIG or a Styer.

    Damn it... Im connected to via VPN and it's leaving some crappy code after my posts.

    There's nothing wrong with other Tikka or Sako's, just a certain run of the stainless barrels were bad. I'd still like to have a Tikka varminter :o
