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!

I have a tikka T3 lite 30-06 on stock composite stock. After reading about both bottom metals. Gen2 vs. long action AICS with the long action billet magazine in tungsten 5 round capacity I am wanting to order, am I understanding that I can use either bottom metals or is there a preferred ( Paul Hatcher, 08/05/2018 )

Hello Paul,

The Tikka T3/T3x  Gen 2 Performance series OEM bottom metal replaces the plastic factory bottom metal and uses factory mags or our new billet mags.

The Tikka T3/T3x L/A AICS bottom metal converts your mag system to accept AICS mags. We recommend a competent gunsmith for the installation, as it requires permanent modification. This bottom metal is not compatible with our new billet mags.

Thanks for your inquiry!
