Tikka T3 and T3x
Titanium Recoil Lug and Stainless Steel bedding kit
This is quite simply the cheapest improvement you can make to your Tikka T3 and T3x to improve the accuracy potential of these great rifles. Our kit is machined made from high-grade and expensive materials to exacting dimensions and a design that delivers real results.
The Tikka T3 is a well made rifle, sporting a super-slick action, quality hammer-forged barrels made by SAKO and a decent adjustable trigger. However they are let down by cheap stocks and non-existent bedding. Most of them shoot fantastically out of the box, but in our experience they can shoot better by correcting the poorly fitting aluminum lug which often dents and deforms under heavy recoil, especially larger calibers. This doesn't take a lot of money, time or special skills to fix for good. Our kit also includes CNC machined steel pillars and hex-head action screws to allow the shooter to adjust properly for the ideal torque producing best accuracy without the risk of compressing the stock.
Note - some fitting is required. Our titanium recoil lug is precision machined for a tighter fit to the slot in your action than the sloppy original aluminum unit. Our lug may need to be tapped into this slot with a nylon or rubber tipped hammer. The bedding pillars are 10mm in diameter so the action holes in the stock will need to be drilled larger from 8mm (using a 25/64" will work well and result in a 'press-in' fit).

Combining our bedding kit with a decent epoxy job such as devcon steel putty or marine tex has seen accuracy improvements in all factory-original rifles we have tested. Especially so with rifles in factory synthetic stocks which have a lot of flex and generally tolerances all over the place from what appears to be an injection molding process. We include this kit free with all our DBMs.
