What is a Harvester?

An HCR Remington 700 Harvester takes down a Gemsbok

For many years, Hill Country Rifles offered our Harvester rifle, built on a Remington 700 barreled action. Each factory rifle would be rigorously inspected before going to our custom shop to be built into a Harvester.

This was a tremendously successful product line, until we stopped production due to our dissatisfaction with factory barrel and chamber quality.

We are relaunching our Harvester rifle series using a well-known Sako product; the Tikka T3 Light.

The Tikka T3 Light gives us a lightweight platform with a detachable box magazine and a short, quick 60-degree bolt throw, Sako extractor and adjustable trigger.  We have been very pleased with the machining quality of the barrels and chambers and are confident we can guarantee a sub-inch grouping rifle at 100 yards with factory ammunition.

How do we build a Harvester?

After a thorough inspection of the Tikka T3 rifle, we perform our complete Accurizing service. In addition to perfectly bedding the action, we recrown the barrel to ensure a perfectly concentric crown and tune the factory trigger to a crisp 3.0 pounds. The factory Tikka stock is replaced with a McMillan hand-laid fiberglass stock with 1” Pachmayr Decelerator recoil pad.  Then we apply our rust-proof Cerakote finish to the metal to give you a fantastic custom look in an extremely accurate, reliable, lightweight hunting rifle at a great price.

As always, we do the barrel break-in, accuracy testing, and find the factory hunting load your rifle likes best.  Scope mounting and sight in is always included.  You can provide a scope or select a new Swarovski, Meopta or Nightforce scope from our inventory.  Our Swarovski scopes start as low as $699!
