customized tikka t3

I recently got my Tikka t3 back from Carl Kampfeld and man did he do an excelent job!
I wanted to make my t3 in 308 as light as possible so i had him flute the bolt/barrel/cut 2" off the barrel and add a brake.
I got the wild hair to modify the stock to shed some ounces as well. The factory tikka t3 stock weighed 1.8 pounds on my scale. I cut 2" off the forearm and shaved another 1/2" or so off where the barrel channel would be. (see pictures). I don't have the same scale at the house so i'm waiting to reweigh on the original scale. hopefully i'm close to the 1.25lbs.
I did a krylon paint job that didn't turn out as well as i hoped so i will be redoing it soon.

Nice work. When you're ready for a quality light weight stock check out Manners stocks.

Very nice. Tikkas are about as good as it gets, and you just made it better.
