I went with CDI when my Manners T4 was built. Mountain Tactical and Grayboe make them also.

That is all I did for upgrades, have some yo dave trigger springs but haven't installed them yet.

Tikka Performance has some nice bottom metal/magazine options, and some nice bolt shrouds as well. They offer bolt handles too, but do not offer a swept (angled) version, which I prefer; I go to Glades Armory for those (be aware that some folks have had some bad experiences with Glades customer service, but I have never had any problems). Other than that, a YoDave or Tikka Performance trigger spring, and you should be good to go!

When you wear out that 300 WM barrel, you might think about going 300 PRC, as it's a shorter/fatter case which will let you run the heavier 30-caliber projectiles without intruding (as much) on powder capacity. There are a couple of barrel nut systems available for Tikkas now (Patriot Valley Arms, Southern Precision Rifles/Bugholes), so you can get a barrel, get a headspace gauge, and install your own barrel (saving you time and a few dollars).

I have two Tikkas with a third in the works. Love 'em.

My only rifle is a Tikka. I am really enjoying my new KRG Bravo stock, and the Sterk bolt handle is officially ballin’ out of control.

If you go with a Manners stock, the Manners Mini Chassis would make sense. Except if you mind a little more weight.

I upgrade the stock on mine to a Manners PRS1 with mini chassis, Sterk bolt and shroud, had a mountain Tactical 20 MOA rail as well.

It’s a great set up for me although I did have a KRG Bravo that I really liked as well.
