Description

Things keep getting better and better!
Our Gen2 Bottom Metal includes updates based on customer feedback.  The
trigger guard has been rounded to eliminate hard corners that could cause
discomfort while shooting.  Pulling design
cues from classic, American bolt action rifles, the MOUNTAIN TACTICAL®
Tikka Bottom Metal a great addition to any factory Tikka T3 or T3x!

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
magwell or shooters
to have flyers compromising accuracy.  

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 eliminating 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.

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

Proudly Made in Montana!

Specifications:

Material – 6061 Aerospace Grade Aluminum

Finish – Mil-Spec Hard Anodized Black

4 reviews for Tikka T3/T3x Gen2 Performance Series OEM Bottom Metal

  1. Vincent  (verified owner)

    The bottom metal along with the Limbsaver recoil pad has helped to improve my T3x Superlite in .308 Win. Before adding the bottom metal groups had averaged 1.5" with handloads. Since the upgrade I was able to print 3 shot groups at 100 yards measuring .9" and .4". This is a well made product and excellent upgrade from the factory part.

  2. Anders Jonsson

    Nice product. It ads perfect lines to the tikka and it holds your mags better then org. Love every product from this guys. Have it among a 5round mag from them aswell. And have a 3 round in order. Cant wait to have it headed to north Sweden

  3. Terry Lucas (verified owner)

    Bought the Gen 2 bottom metal and the 5 round SA magazine for my Tikka T3x to see if it would actually help in the grouping of the rifle ( was shooting sub MOA prior to install) much to my surprise this rifle is now shooting 1/4” sub MOA with Hornady American Whitetail, looks and performance are second to none. Good Job. American made American Proud. Would recommend for every Tikka owner.

  4. Kien Do (verified owner)

    Overall a great product, the Bottom Metal matched up perfectly with my Tikka T3x SS. The fit & feel of my rifle altogether has greatly improved. Works great with both factory Tikka mags and Mountain Tactical mags. Highly recommend.

Questions and answers of the customers

    Looking into getting this bottom metal, However still a little confused. This will be for a T3X veil Wideland in 6.5 Creedmoor. I reload so one how much C.O.A.l will a short action mag accept vs Long action? 2. Will this bottom metal accept both long action and short action mags (Your Gen2 mags)? Are there any mods needed to be done to work with either mag? And finally are you saying that your Gen2 long action Mags will feed short action rounds like 6.5 creed without issue and will I have to mod my rifle to use the long action mag?
