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 30-06 based cartridges,
short magnum cartridges, and belted magnums all from the same magazine. This eliminates confusion for owners of
multiple rifles. One magazine can feed all
their long 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
Simply put, these are the finest Tikka T3 or Tikka T3x
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.
The MOUNTAIN TACTICAL® Gen2 Billet Magazine bodies
are cut from aerospace grade billet aluminum and hard anodized for a lifetime
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
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.
