Tikka T3/T3x Gen2 Performance Series OEM Bottom Metal



Things keep getting better and better!  Our Gen2 Bottom Metal includes updates based on customer feedback.  It's a great addition to any factory Tikka T3 or T3x!

THIS is a product we are very excited to offer!  Jason wanted to launch the Tikka Performance Center with an OEM Bottom Metal and an AICS Long Action Bottom Metal.  These parts were too complex to machine on our old 3 axis mill and too expensive to contract out.  So now, four years later, we have the technology!  The OEM Bottom will be the first bottom metal introduced with the Long Action AICS Bottom Metal following shortly.  If you've been following us on Facebook, you've seen the progression and we custom build fixtures for our new 4 axis mill.

The purpose of the Tikka T3 OEM replacement bottom metal is to get rid of another piece of plastic on the rifle that is prone to flexing which causes some of Tikka's magazines to get stuck in the mag well.  

The Trigger Guard has been enlarged making it safer to shoot the rifle with gloves.  Additionally, we widened the trigger guard a little to enhance the safety of the rifle by making it more difficult to accidentally discharge the rifle while eliminiating some sympathetic muscle movement upon trigger pull.

No gunsmithing is necessary for installing and it is compatible with all models of Tikka T3 EXCEPT the latest generation of CTR which uses the TRG22 magazine system.

So throw away another plastic part and install a safer and more rigid bottom metal in its place.

Proudly Made in Montana!

There is mention of AIC Long Action bolt metal......... So does this mean these are not compatible with existing Tikka factory magazines so as to accomodate aftermarket improvements such as AIC mags allowing for longer bullet mag loading? ( Scott Drysdale, 20/07/2017 )

Hi Scott,

This Tikka T3/T3x Gen 2 Performance Series OEM bottom metal is a direct replacement for the factory plastic bottom metal

and works with all T3/T3x's but NOT the CTR.

This bottom metal accepts the standard Tikka factory mags.

Thanks for your inquiry!

Will the bottom metal still fit tikka t3/ t3x after a piller &bedding job??? ( Shane Heigh, 06/07/2017 )

Hello Shane,

Ideally, pillar bedding should be done using the bottom metal that you are going to use on your gun. Without doing this, you would be guessing at the fit of the action and bottom metal to the stock. Pillar bedding is done to achieve a perfect fit for the action to stock, and a necessary component of the fit is the bottom metal. 

Thanks for the inquiry!

Does the Performance Series Bottom Metal come with the hardened action screws? ( Fritz, 13/06/2017 )

No, it does not come with any screws.  

Thanks for your inquiry!
