Is the 16" version out yet? I have not been able to find one for sale.

They're available in Canada, probably in the US as well, although supply may not be keeping up with demand.

I have been waiting for the 16" to be released since the original T1X announcement. I also check every morning for anything concerning them coming to the US...so far its been like ground hog day. Kind of like waiting on Ruger to release the RAR 17Hm2...I beginning to think I have a better chance of seeing monkeys flying out my rearend then to see either one for sale here.

Also been hoping to hear of a 22Mag in the T1X, even though I wanting a 17HM2 I figured the 22Mag would certainly come before the other.

Inventory in Canada seems to be coming in small quantities at irregular intervals.
Cabelas has stock on both the .17 and the .22, but it's all 20" barrels.
A local dealer has three 16" .22s in stock, but no 20" or .17HMR.
There may be some new versions of the rifle released in years to come.
I've said in the past that a wood stocked version is a no-brainer for Tikka, and a tactical chassis a la RPR wouldn't surprise me either.
If they can build a wood stock version and keep the price below an Anschutz 64 series they should sell quite a few.
I put a T3 walnut stock on mine and am quite happy with it.

What if they never offer it? How long are you willing to wait?

KOD, I realize that question was not directed to me, but I am waiting for a 16" rifle as well. To be honest that is a GREAT question because I consider myself to be very patient but this is almost ridiculous because there is zero info coming down even hinting that a 16" is coming.

I may just have to continue shooting my JW15 for a while longer but Id sure rather have a short barreled .22 for my buggy when I'm on the farm.

I have a 17HMR RAR predator version and I really like the 18" barrel and even though 20" isn't much longer its definitely shorter the JW...

Not sure but I think the overall length of the T1x 20" is almost the same length as the RAR 18". Hmmmmm

Yeah, kinda reminds me of computer components. How long are you willing to wait for the next latest and greatest video card for example. Unless you pay a premium you will always be behind in that race.

Not sure how much difference 4" of barrel would make? Biggest advantage of a 16" barrel "to me" would be suppressor usage. My Sparrow on a 16" barrel would put it around 1 to 1.5" longer than the 20" barrel.

The same reason I want one in 16".

That's understandable. Hopefully you won't have to wait long.

My plans...

I'm a patient fellow. My lgs finally got the first t1x in last week, and while I really like it, I've decided to order up a rimfire suppressor instead.
I'm hoping that a 16" t1x is available by the time the can arrives and then I'll purchase the tikka. I think the 16" barreled rifle would make for an excellent suppressor host as overall weight and balance should be just about right. E.

Mine seem to shoot best suppressed or with some type of muzzle brake such as a Lantec Dragon or SCO ASR brake. I have a buddy who I let borrow mine and he bought the ASR brake from Silencerco. His shoots groups like this.
