Well I guess colors is a better description. Seems to me this is to compete more with the CA Mesa.

Hmmm. Seems like it is more than colors based on the description. From that site:

Upgraded features include

- Enhanced Recoil Pad
- Oversized Bolt Handle
- Metallic Bolt Shroud
- Fluted Bolt
- Steel Recoil Lug
- cerakoted, Fluted, 5/8x24 Threaded Barrel
- Cerakoted Muzzle Brake
- Integral 17mm Rail, drilled & tapped to receive standard (Weaver) scope mount bases or Picatinny rail

Actually seems like tikka took note of the mods people make on the guns and made a lot of them standard.

Checking the difference on the 6.5 Creedmoor versions, it Also looks like it adds 5-6oz and $200-400 to the retail price.

Pretty cool in my mind they are taking care of all the basic mods most people do to these rifles, must have a heavier barrel too to be threaded 5/8

1-11"????? Again???
For those of us (me) that don't know the limitations on the 1/11" twist, can you explain? Does that limit bullet selection for accuracy?

Thank you, really interested in this rifle but don't want to buy a turd!

Likely it won’t stabilize anything over 190 grains. Maybe not 190 even.
Contrary to some twist has no affect on accuracy.....

The 6CM in that Alpine rifle would be pretty damn sweet!
