There is no silly question, only silly answersSilly question, but what type of wrap is that on the scope?
How do you like that Bushnell glass?Just posted it in another thread so may as well throw it up here too.
T3X CTR 6.5CM 24”
Sphur + DMR2 3.5-21x50
Custom Wombat Ordnance AI chassis, I have modified to suit newer style AI skins & forend flush cups. All the victor co. add ons, grippy cheek rest etc.
Sterk bolt handle, hss shroud.
Badger mini FTE brake
Sako TRG bipod using an adaptor I made up
ARC 10rnd mags
Loves 140rdf’s, is a tack driver like all my tikkas.
I’ll buy an AI AT one day and put this setup on my .223 T3 Varmint View attachment 7022528View attachment 7022529View attachment 7022530
Not all Tikkas are threaded, the CTR and a few other models come threaded from factory. The Tikka CTR in the plastic stock is very light and would be easy to carry around hunting.Looking to purchase a tikka in next few months for light carrying hunting but eventually it will be a donor for a long range rifle. Does all tikkas barrel come threaded or is it just the CTR model?
Thanks in advance!
Have you checked out Capital Armory? They have lots of Thunderbeast stuff and I've heard great things about them. I might use them for my next can.I made my mind up and was going to purchase a thunder beast for my 6.5 CTR. Of course silencershop.com (gonna do a trust) is sold out. So I’m back to waiting to wait. My question is, I know some velocity is lost with shorter barrels. I am looking to add a 308 CTR (free match ammo) to the arsenal. Does adding a suppressor gain or take away any velocity?
Yes, I have one in the works right now. You will either need to order a small shank (1.13"), which is what I did, or have your gunsmith do some work to make the 1.20" barrel look rightOk guys kinda new to this so. I’m sure this has been ask before but can you put a proof carbon fiber barrel on a Tikka t3x action
When you remove the butt pad you will find a plastic grate that holds the foam in place.Hi everyone, any thoughts on the Kalixtechnic CR1 cheek riser? Seems like a neat product at a semi-decent price. I would use it on a T3x factory camo stock. One thing I can't figure out after watching the instruction video is how to remove the innards of the stock, i.e. what the butt pad screws into and the styrofoam block. Maybe it's just pried out but I didn't want to try without seeing if someone knew.
If anyone has one to sell I might be interested as well.
Ok, so that plastic grate isn't glued in or otherwise permanent? I just yank it out with sone pliers?When you remove the butt pad you will find a plastic grate that holds the foam in place.
Remove the grate and bump the stock to see if the foam will come loose if not put a small flat head driver down to the side of the foam block or something to grip the foam and leverage it out.
If your stock has the cheek piece like the CTR does then you have to pop out the plug on top and remove the screw holding it on because that screw goes through and into the foam.
It comes out easy so should not be a problem as long as you can get a grip on it....
For the cost they are great triggers.Check out the Timney 2 stage trigger. Its awesome and adjusts down below a pound.
I have bought several suppressors from Tory @ Capitol Armory along with several guns. Great group of guys over there and they also do engraving.Have you checked out Capital Armory? They have lots of Thunderbeast stuff and I've heard great things about them. I might use them for my next can.
A friend gave me one that I run on a remy with PTG flush bottom metal and it works great. Very well madeHas anyone tried the Curtis Custom 3rd AICS magazines with a Tikka? Doing a lightweight hunting build on a Tikka action and I like how these sit a lot more flush with the stock. Looks like the feedlips are a bit on the thicker side, though, resembling the Magpul mags which don't really work well with Tikka actions.
Thanks for the help.
I ordered one and it doesn’t look like it’s going work. Why can’t companies just use the same design as the AICS and shorten it? This thing has the thickest lips of anything I’ve ever seen. Way beyond necessary. Sigh lol.A friend gave me one that I run on a remy with PTG flush bottom metal and it works great. Very well made
