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 (15)

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 )
Q: Any idea when you will have these in stock? Thanks ( Rob, 01/10/2014 )

A: Rob, we should more of have these in today! ( RP, 02/10/2014 )
Q: Hi, just wondering about the ai magizines for the t3 300 win mag. I have a t3 hunter it is a great gun but I can't reload it to it's full potential as the original magazine has a short oal. Do you sell the steel bottom for the t3, and will it accept the ai mag? Also is there any gunsmithing required to fit this? Im from Australia and we don't have too many after market options here. Any information greatly appreciated. Thank's Mate Dave ( Dave, 17/09/2014 )

A: Dave, Great news!! We have developed aluminum bottom metal for the Tikka T3 that works great with AICS long magazines (and other similar magazines- Accurate Mags, Aplha Industries, etc). Our bottom metal will be a direct fit & will not require any gunsmithing. Jason is- at this very moment- finishing some tooling that will allow us to start producing bottom metal in the very near future. ( RP, 18/09/2014 )
Q: I have 2 Tikka T3 Lites in 30-06 and 308. What are the weights of your recoil lugs and what are the weights of those factory lugs that originally come with those rifles? I'm interested in the difference and how much weight they may add to my rifles. Thanks. ( Ken, 30/08/2014 )

A: Hi Ken, The factory lug weighs .2oz while ours weigh .7oz. Let us know if you have any other questions. Thank you for your inquiry! Jason ( Jason, 02/09/2014 )
Q: Hi Guys , I have 2 x Tikka T3 's . 1 308 super varmint stainless and a 223 Lite stainless The super varmint came with a piccy rail . Can you tell me if it would have the recoil pin on the rail and/or a steel recoil lug as stock ? Will I need to upgrade both of these rifles ? Thanks Bill ( Bill , 04/08/2014 )

A: Hello Bill, The Super Varmint and the Tactical come with a piccy rail that is pinned with two pins to the action, along with the screws. I believe the receiver has the same recoil lug hole, but the trick is getting out the factory pins. I have a customer who is doing it right now, but haven't heard back if he had any luck. The T3 Lite of couse is no problem! ( Greg, 04/08/2014 )
