The Tikka compact has a 20" barrel. The suggestion to have the barrel cut and crowned to any length you want is a good suggestion. Pick any gun you like and cut the barrel.

Ya but then Id have to ship the gun out pay for cutting/crowning, threading and all that. Id rather just buy one already done.

Isn't there anyone local to you that does it? I think my local guy is around $100. It all depends on budget and what guns you like. If there is one you like that is already threaded, great, but if not, pick anything you do like and have it done. It seems that more manufacturers are starting to offer threaded barrels. Kimber has some Montana's with threaded barrels, watch Gunbroker, lots of good deals pop up.

There is a gunsmith not too far away but Ive heard about 50/50 on his work. Another one the same. I just had my 22-250 threaded and shipped it to a place 4 hours away that came highly recommended. $126 for the work. I know you can cut and thread but would like to just save the headache and get one already done.
