Tikka T3/T3x Gen2 Billet Magazine – Short Action 3 Round

Description

After the overwhelming success of the Gen1 Billet Tikka
Magazines, our team went back to the drawing board to make this Tikka staple
even better.  Using feedback from our
worldwide network of customers who use these mags in virtually every condition possible,
we went to work implementing the changes they requested.

Based on this feedback, we are excited to introduce the
MOUNTAIN TACTICAL® Gen2 Billet Magazines for the Tikka T3/T3x rifle system.

These magazines are 33% lighter than their Gen1
counterparts.  They also feature smoother
feeding and positive ejection.

Additionally, our team was able to create a reliable feeding
geometry that allows the long action magazine to feed 308 based cartridges and short magnum cartridges all from the same magazine.  This eliminates confusion for owners of
multiple rifles.  One magazine can feed all
their short action Tikka T3 or T3x rifles.

While we were updating the features and geometry of this
magazine, we also had the opportunity to update our manufacturing
processes.  We passed on the cost savings
of the lower machining cost with a 12.5% reduction in price compared to the
Gen1 mags.

Simply put, these are the finest Tikka T3 or Tikka T3x
magazines available.

Since the Tikka T3 and T3x were released, Tikka Shooters
have complained about the plastic magazines included with the rifle.  Other companies have released billet magazines,
but the cost is prohibitive for most Tikka owners.

MOUNTAIN TACTICAL® has created an affordable magazine
for the Tikka community.

 

Construction:

The MOUNTAIN TACTICAL® Gen2 Billet Magazine bodies
are cut from aerospace grade billet aluminum and hard anodized for a lifetime
of service.

The magazine followers are machined from Delrin, a
self-lubricating thermo-polymer typically reserved for precision applications
requiring high lubricity while retaining superior solvent and chemical
resistance.

One of the key components is a quality magazine spring.  Going cheap would create a magazine that
would fatigue over time and fail in the field.

We’ve chosen to have custom 17-7 PH stainless steel springs
manufactured.  17-7 PH is an amazing
material designed for the aerospace industry when intricate parts require low
distortion over time and temperature changes.
Additionally, it has phenomenal corrosion resistance and retains its
mechanical properties under substantial stress.

 

Specifications:

 

Magazine Material – 6061 Aircraft Grade Aluminum

Mag Catch Finish – Mil Spec Hard Anodized

Magazine Follower – Delrin

Magazine Spring – 17-7 Stainless Steel

3 reviews for Tikka T3/T3x Gen2 Billet Magazine – Short Action 3 Round

  1. John Radek (verified owner)

    I can’t say enough about this magazine. The workmanship is top-notch, and it feeds smooth and easy every time. It is heavier than the piece of ___t that comes with the rifle, and it has more clearance for bullets to be seated long. The price is fair considering the work involved. If you have been looking around for a good magazine, look no further.

  2. Brad Carter (verified owner)

    Great magazine, build and function is great. I needed a little more length for a 6.5 PRC vs the factory magazine and this fit the bill. It works for my reloads and factory rounds for my rifle.

  3. Jon Fode (verified owner)

    Won’t feed 300wsm rounds. Still waiting on a reply back from customer service about this issue. I won’t recommend this product to anyone at this moment. Very disappointing not getting a reply from customer service after a couple weeks.

  36. I load my handloads of 7mm-08 to a lenght of 2.968" so they have a .040" jump before entering the rifling and are just slightly longer than the plastic magazine that came with the Tikka T3. Will my handloaded ammo fit in this metal magazine of yours? You have the 3 round magazine in stock, but will you also be making a five round magazine? Thanks. I have your stainless steel recoil lug and a steel picatinny rail on the rifle and it shoots almost to the same hole at 100 yds. Great products. Are the steel rails no longer available? I only saw aluminum ones on your website.
