    Getting factory barrel off Tikka T3x lite

    I just clamped it to one of my workbenches with a pair of large C-clamps. Clamping it at the corner of the bench allowed me to bring one C-clamp from behind and keep it out of the way of the wrench. I think I'm going to Cerakote my vise. Bob

    Getting factory barrel off Tikka T3x lite

    My Wally Cooper barrel vise arrived today. Had to open up the notch on one of the bushings just a tad and then it locked down tight. Took about four good blows on the wrench with a five pound dead blow hammer and it broke loose. Thanks everyone! Bob

    WTB - Glock 19, Gen4, full FDE

    Specifically looking for the factory stock, Gen 4, full FDE (frame & slide), G19 in new or near new condition. I can do F2F in the DFW area or you would need to be willing to ship to my FFL. Shoot me a message if you can hook a brother up. Bob

    Getting factory barrel off Tikka T3x lite

    I ordered one of these today. Would have liked to make it myself but, with all the shutdowns and social distancing, I didn't think going to my steel suppliers would be a good idea. I have plenty of aluminum bar on hand so, if need be, I can turn a custom bushing. Bob

    Getting factory barrel off Tikka T3x lite

    Yeah...trying to keep the unfired barrel in good shape so I can recoup some cost on this project. That sounds like a good system. I always try to use the "least time invested" system first but, I can see where I may end up doing something like this. Bob

    Getting factory barrel off Tikka T3x lite

    Probably have a few more weeks to wait on my X-caliber barrel but, I really want to get the factory barrel off the action while I have some spare time. I tried making some blocks out of oak and clamping with rosin in both my bench vise and in my shop press and putting a 31mm wrench on the...

    Tikka CTR or Varmint?

    If they would still import the varmint in .308, I would buy one and put it in a KRG Bravo for CTR mags. I'm not a huge fan of .308 these days but, I still like the idea of keeping something in the safe than can shoot cheap military surplus ammo. Bob

    First precision rifle

    I also highly recommend the Tikka T3x CTR. My 6.5 Creedmoor shot right at 1/2moa at 100yd out of the box with Hornady American Gunner 140gr. I've seen some nice groups from the .308win models as well. You will not get a CTR and a Vortex Razor for under $2k even if both are used. One of the best...

    Who's got time and experience behind a RPR in 338L

    I'm subscribing to this thread because I'm half-assed interested in the 338LM RPR for no other reason than, I think they are cool. I hope you'll update with your experiences. Bob

    I just saw this, good info for those wanting to jump up to a magnum. I think most of this has been covered at some point in the thread but he brings it all together. Bob

    KRG Bravo for CTR that can take TRG/CTR mags?

    I would have preferred the FDE but, I didn't want to keep waiting and have them run out again before I could get my current project together. Figured I could just paint it. Bob

    Can I use my shop press for a barrel vise?

    Are they torqued on tight or is it a thread locker that makes them so tight? Bob

    Athlon Midas Tac - High Value Glass

    I looked at the Ares ETR several times and almost bought one but, the timing was perfect for the new 5-25x56 Midas TAC and I went with it instead because I didn't need illumination. I will just say that I've never been able to look through both scopes at the same time but, I believe the glass is...
