Tikka T3/T3x Gen2 Long Action AICS Bottom Metal - Out Of Stock - Back Order OK


$199.99

Patent Pending

Professional Gunsmith Installation Recommended

Our Gen2 Long Action AICS Bottom Metal takes the successful Long Action AICS Conversion Kit from Mountain Tactical Company and incorporates upgrades from customer feedback.

We added a full magazine well to improve magazine retention and to speed up magazine changes.  The mag catch has been improved to prevent premature mag release under heavy recoil.  Our Gen2 CTR AICS conversion kit has a new, textured barricade stop that we added to the Gen2 Long Action AICS Bottom Metal as well.

The Tikka T3 and T3x has changed the firearm industry’s perception of a what a precision hunting rifle should be world-wide.  While the Tikka excels in almost every aspect a shooter could ask for in a rifle, one shortcoming hand loaders have struggled with since the rifle’s inception is the limited magazine length.

A logical magazine replacement would be the long action AICS magazines and clones.  While several bottom metal companies have attempted to make a bottom metal compatible with both these magazines and the T3/T3x, none have been able to create a solution that actually allows the use of longer case lengths… until now…

This bottom metal has been 6 years in the making!  Through these years of trial and error, our design team has been able to create a kit that allows the shooter to utilize the full length available in these military grade magazines.

Standard COAL for long action AICS magazines is 3.60”

It is important to only use SAAMI length AICS style magazines with an external length of no more than 3.715”

It is important to remember that once a rifle is modified beyond the scope its original design, additional and unforeseen work may be necessary for reliable function.  Thus, installation, final fit and finish is best accomplished by a competent gunsmith.

My caliber is a .300 win mag. Will the OEM work for that ? ( ryan, 17/07/2020 )

Hi Ryan,

The easiest thing would be for you to get our OEM bottom metal and use L/A mags. If you wanted to use AICS mags, you would also need the AICS bottom metal and then modify the trigger housing to accommodate it. This requires a professional gunsmith, unless you are up for a Big challenge.

Hope this helps!

I am just wondering what magazine conversion kit to get for my t3x laminate stainless. I see there are a couple available and just want a different magazine that will accommodate for reloading . ( Ryan, 11/07/2020 )

Hi Ryan,

Yes, our T3/T3x mags will fit your T3X laminate stainless.  Which mag you get depends on the caliber. The OEM is the direct factory replacement.

Hope this helps!

i have a left hand tikka t3x 7mm rem mag and bought your billet mag and i like it alot but i recently started hand loading with berger bullets and my overall bullet length is limited by the billet mag will the aics kit work to help my situation also will my billet mag work with my 300 wsm? ( jeff doege , 28/03/2020 )

Hi Jeff,

The L/A  AICS mags have a standard COAL of 3.6 inches, which does exceed that of our L/A billet mags COAL of 3.4 inches. 

A L/A bolt stop will enable our L/A billet mag to work with your 300WSM.

Thanks for your inquiry!
