Description

After several years of customer feedback, we have upgraded this Tikka staple!

The Gen2 CTR AICS Conversion Bottom Metal incorporates a stronger magazine retention system, a captured cross pin, and added texture to the barricade stop.

The MOUNTAIN TACTICAL® AICS Conversion Kit for the CTR has a large, beveled magazine well designed to make mag changes quick and effortless. The magazine well allows for positive engagement with the action when the mag catch is secure and releases the magazine to fall free from the rifle once the mag catch is pressed.

The ergonomic mag catch has no sharp edges that could snag on clothing or gear.

A barricade stop is machined onto the front of the magazine well creating a secure point to hold the rifle system steady without compromising the reliability of feeding the next round into the chamber.

The trigger guard is enlarged to facilitate gloved hands without compromising safety.

An additional benefit of this bottom metal is the fact that it simplifies the conversion of any Tikka rifle to accept AICS compatible magazines. Since we are utilizing an OEM factory inlet, you can purchase any aftermarket stock inlet for the CTR and this bottom metal will drop in to convert your standard T3 or T3x rifle to accept AICS magazines. No gunsmithing or special inletting required!

It is possible to modify an existing T3 or T3x stock to accept this bottom metal. A competent gunsmith can relieve the material from your stock to allow this bottom metal to be installed.

Moreover, the AICS Bottom Metal is covered under our unconditional lifetime warranty!

Magazine Compatibility:

Drop-In – All known metal AICS and AICS Clones

Need modification – Mag-Pul Pmags and AICS 223 polymer magazines (material outside the feed lips must be removed)

Specifications:

Mag Catch Material – Stainless Steel

Mag Catch Finish – Mill Finish

Bottom Metal Body – 6061-T6 Billet Aluminum

Bottom Metal Finish – Type III Mil-Spec Hard Anodized

Questions and answers of the customers

    I have your CTR Gen 2 bottom metal and I bought a 5 round and 10 round accurate mag. The 5 rounder does not fit! It keeps hitting the bottom metal before full inserted. The 10 rounder fits perfect though. Why is that?

    Hello,

    It works with all AICS mags. I will say that it prefers metal over the polymer mags. With the polymer mags, you will need to remove some material from the feed lips.

    Hello,

    If you are converting from OEM bottom metal to a CTR, the inlet will need to have material removed from the stock by a gunsmith. There is nothing that needs to be done to the actual trigger housing.
