The Tikka Performance Center is excited to offer our Elite Series Steel Picatinny Rails for the Tikka T3 available in both 0 and 20 MOA.

The primary advantage of the Elite Series Picatinny Rail system is our proprietary utilization of Tikka’s recoil recess in the action.  This integrated recoil lug absorbs the shearing forces of the mount under recoil instead of the four tiny screws included in most other mounting systems.

We proudly manufacture our Elite Series picatinny rails from hardened 4140 steel. 

Originally we were going to Mil Spec parkerize the rails but the coating was to inconsistent for the level of precision we desired to acheive. 

After much research, we chose to Melonite coat the rails.  This is also known as salt bath - nitriding.  Instead of a coating going over the steel, this process changes the steel at the molecular level.  The hardness acheived is unbelievable!  Once steel has been treated with Melonite, standard machining tools can not be used to cut it.

Our Elite Series picatinny steel rails for the Tikka T3 will provide you a lifetime of service, even under the harshest conditions or the heaviest recoil you throw at them.

These rails are full, MIL-STD 1913 spec rails machined to an amazing +/- .002” tolerance. 

Unlike standard Weaver style rail mounts with limited contact with the scope rings, our full picatinny rails make contact with the scope rings over the entire width of the mount.  This eliminates potential damage that can occur under heavy recoil (see picture of a T3 Standard Rail damaged by the recoil of a .270).

Our Tikka T3 mounts come with standard 6-48 screws.  If your T3 was manufactured prior to 2004, it may require metric screws.  Please type “METRIC” in the notes and we will provide you with metric screws at no additional cost.

The Tikka Performance Center Elite Series rails for the Tikka T3 are the finest steel Tikka T3 mounts you will find anywhere.

Q & A (23)

Q: I am going to purchase a Tikka T3 superlite in the stainless version, .300 Win Mag. I have plans to mount a Vortex 6-24x50 scope on this gun. I would like this to be a 1000 yd gun -- and and trying to figure out what configuration of pic rail (0 moa or 20 moa) and scope mounts that would work best on my desired setup. I would like a 200 yard zero I believe. Input on which size and style pic rail, and also suggestions for rock hard mounts would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance. Cheers! ( Mike, 06/06/2014 )

A: A simple solution would be to buy the Elite Series steel pic rail in 20MOA, cause you will want the extra elevation given by that. Good rings for a decent price would be the Leupold PRW in medium for a 50mm bell. The rings are steel and have a bar of steel to fit up to the pic rail. Pretty solid! ( Greg, 09/06/2014 )
Q: I will be mounting a Nikon monarch using this rail. The scope has 40moa of internal adjustment, if I bought the rail with 20 moa of adjustment built in, would I have any problems with a 100 yard zero? I like mounting my scope as low as possible, this will be my first long range gun, which rail will sit the scope lower to the rifle, the 20 moa rail or 0 moa rail? Thanks ( Buck, 23/04/2014 )

A: I believe the Monarch (depending on power) has about 60 moa of internal adjustment. Therefore, using the 20 MOA rail, you would effectively have 10 MOA of down adjustment, but would now have 50 MOA of elevation adjustment, so you should be fine with a 100 yd zero. Both rails elevate the optic about 3/8 of an inch off the receiver. The 20 MOA of course is slightly tilted down at the front and is about .340 at that point. Hope that helps you! ( Greg, 25/04/2014 )
Q: I am looking at purchasing the Elite rail for my T3 7mm Rem Mag. And I would like to know what size scope rings do I need to purchase for a 10x42 Tactical 30mm Rifle Scope? Low, Med, or High? Thanks ( doug, 02/04/2014 )

A: You might be able to sneak by with Low rings with the 42mm bell on the scope, as the rail gives you about 3/8 inch rise off the receiver to start with. You definitely could use mediums with no problem. Hope that helps! ( Greg, 03/04/2014 )
Q: Dear Sir, I have seen your company's videos with regards to your rails. I have recently purchased a zeiss terra 3x9 42 mm scope and purchased some lens covers from butler creek to go on my T3 lite. I am wondering which of your rails would be the closest to the barrel. Currently the factory rings keep the scope very close to the barrel ( the lens cover is very snug to the barrel) and I would like to keep the same distance. I plan to either get the reaper system or. Burris zee rings ( I am very new to shooting rifles and really do not know the difference between 0 Moa and 20 nor what combination of your rail and rings will keep the scope as low as it currently sits). My shooting will be primarily range ( no more then 200 yards) and hunting. Thank you in advance for any advise with regards to this matter. Looking forward to purchasing your amazing rail. Have a great day. PS. Is a torque driver necessary or can I just use a hand tool? ( Boris Fishman, 29/03/2014 )

A: Hello, Boris All of our rails will elevate the scope about 3/8 of an inch off the receiver before you factor in rings. You could probably get away with low rings with the 42mm scope. Worst case, medium rings. If you are shooting no more than 200 yds, you would not need the 20 MOA rail, as you will have plenty of elevation adjustment inside the scope. Leupold PRW rings are really good rings, and don't cost a lot of money. You can install the rail with a hand tool, but it is more precise to use a torque driver set at 25 inch pounds. Hope that helps! ( Greg, 31/03/2014 )
Q: I have a tikka t3 lite in 308. I ordered the MT elite 0 MOA rail. I selected this rail because the NF Ultralite Unimount with 1.44" Height has a 20 MOA built-in to the mount. I'm installing NF 5-25x56 ATACR™ 120MOA elev. 60MOA wind 34 mm scope. I feel like the MT 0 MOA rail with the 20 MOA NF Unimount makes the most sense for the Tikka 308. Using a 20 MOA rail and 20 MOA mount, I felt like it would be difficult to zero 1 MOA @ 100 yards. your thoughts / comments ( Mike , 16/02/2014 )

A: Hi Mike, You are having difficulty getting a 100 yard zero because that mount combination is designed for a 300-400 yard zero. Even though you purchased a 0 MOA mount to go under the 20 MOA mount, you have raised your scope so much over the bore of the rifle that you will have difficulty dial down for a short range zero. The great news is that you will have no issues dialing for long range shots as you probably have a ton of adjustment now in your scope. Thank you for your inquiry! Jason ( Jason, 18/02/2014 )
