The Tikka Performance Center is excited to offer our Gen 2 Elite Series Stainless Steel Recoil lugs for the Tikka T3.

The primary advantage of the Gen 2 Elite Series Stainless Steel Recoil Lug is the additional strength of marine grade stainless 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 Gen 2 Elite Series Stainless Steel 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 Gen 2 Elite Series Stainless Steel Recoil Lugs from Marine Grade Stainless Steel for the ultimate in weather resistance. 

Our Gen 2 Elite Series Stainless 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 (25)

Q: I'm trying to get the original lug out of the the original Tikka stock. The lug is so tight in it, that even with a pair of pliers, I just can't take it out. I already damaged the original lug with the pliers jaw. Any idea on how to take it out? Thanks. Best regards. ( Andrew, 30/10/2015 )

A: Hi Andrew Pliers are the ticket. I've never heard of this happening. Usually they are really loose and can be pulled out very easily. Do you have and vise grips? Keep us posted. The MT Team ( Jason, 03/11/2015 )
Q: Can you tell us the thickness of your recoil lug? My stock Tikka T3 Aluminum recoil lug measures .237" ( Alex, 06/09/2015 )

A: Hi Alex, Ours are cut to .240" thick to ensure a tighter fit between the stock and the action. Thank you for your inquiry! The MT Team ( Jason, 09/09/2015 )
Q: Will these work in a 585? ( Bill, 20/03/2015 )

A: Bill, I'm assuming you mean a 595? The T3 uses the TRG style tombstone lug, and is not compatible with the M595's. ( RP, 23/03/2015 )
Q: Do the steel recoil lugs fit the new Tikka CTR in .308? Are they still a recommended upgrade? ( David, 19/03/2015 )

A: David, Yes, and YES! ( RP, 23/03/2015 )
Q: Are these a good upgrade for a T3 Sporter? ( Justin, 18/02/2015 )

A: Hi Justin, Yes! This is probably the most important upgrade the Tikka T3 needs. We have revitalized over one hundred "shot out" rifles with this one upgrade. When you remove your aluminum recoil lug, you'll see an upside down trapezoid dent on it. This is from the action hitting the lug under recoil. Your caliber and load determine how fast the factory lug takes to wear out. Typically it is 100 rounds or so. Thank you for your inquiry! The MT Team ( Jason, 18/02/2015 )
