The Tikka Performance Center is excited to offer our Elite Series Steel Recoil lugs for the Tikka T3.

The primary advantage of the Elite Series Recoil Lug is the additional strength of hardened 4140 steel absorbing the recoil of the rifle instead of the light-weight aluminum alloy Tikka uses.  If you remove the recoil lug from your stock, you'll see an upside down trapezoid appear over time.  This dent eventually allows the action to move under recoil and degrades accuracy.

Our Elite Series Recoil Lug is also machined to a larger dimension, yet still fits in the factory stock.  This tighter fit results in increased rigidity between the action and the stock.  The increase in consistency of the rifle is amazing!

This is a similar system the Sako TRG-42 utilizes without the $3,500 price tag!

We proudly manufacture our Elite Series Recoil Lugs from hardened 4140 steel.  After machining, we then Salt Bath Nitride the lugs for the ultimate in weather resistance. 

Our Elite Series Steel Recoil Lugs 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 lugs are machined to an amazing +/- .002" tolerance. 

Installation is simple.  Simply remove the two action screws and separate your action from the stock.  Using a pair of pliers, remove the existing metal piece from the stock.  Then push the Elite Series Recoil Lug into the same recess.  Put your action and stock back together and tighten your action screws.  You are done! 

Note that sometimes it can take a little longer to line up your action and stock because of the tighter tolerances of our recoil lug. 

The Tikka Performance Center Elite Series Recoil Lugs for the Tikka T3 are of the finest quality you will find anywhere.

Q & A (19)

Q: This may appear to be a stupid question, but are they sold individually or as a pair? ( Vincent, 25/01/2015 )

A: Vincent, They're sold individually. ( RP, 29/01/2015 )
Q: You have some pretty informative videos on your site. Any chance you'll be posting a video showing the installation of one of these recoil lugs? ( Joel, 02/01/2015 )

A: Joel, We shot the video just before Christmas, and will have it up as soon as we catch up to our holiday order volume! ( RP, 02/01/2015 )
Q: Any idea when these will be in stock again? ( Jon , 29/12/2014 )

A: Hi Jon, We have been machining them for the last two days solid! Honestly, we underestimated the demand of the stainless lugs and did not machine enough to begin with and have been playing catch up for the last month... Currently, all the lugs coming off the machine are going to existing orders on a first come first serve basis. At the current rate of orders and production, we should be ahead of the curve next week. Thank you for your inquiry and Happy New Year! The MT Team ( Jason, 31/12/2014 )
Q: Do these recoil lugs affect the amount of recoil felt when shooting? ( Derek, 27/12/2014 )

A: Hi Derek, The answer is "yes", it would change the felt recoil since our recoil lugs are much more dense than the cheap aluminum Tikka uses. However, I don't know if the difference is enough to make a significantly noticeable difference. Most of our customers purchase the lug, Elite Screws, and the Limbsaver Recoil Pad and notice a substantial reduction in felt recoil. Thank you for your inquiry! The MT Team ( Jason, 27/12/2014 )
Q: The picture shows both black and stainless steel colors, but when checking out there is no option to choose what color you want. How do you know what color you will get? ( Dana, 27/10/2014 )

A: Hi Dana That was a before and after picture of the Salt Bath Nitriding process. Once the process is done, the steel is stronger than stainless! It's very cool technology. When you get your lug, it will be black. Thank you for your inquiry! The MT Team ( Jason, 27/10/2014 )
