How hard is it to bed a lamanate tikka stock? That recoil lug may pose an issue, or won't it?

    I bought a T3 Lite for my son as his first deer rifle ( he's got a few years to go ) in .243. I put a Burris Fullfield 3x9x40 Ball. Plx. on it. It is such a sweet shooting rifle that I now have one of my own in .243 w/ Leupy 4.5x14x40 vh. ret. 30mm tube. It's a great carry gun for deer. I shoot better groups at 200 yds than most shoot at 100. No bs. I am not crazy about the stock; but for an inexpensive rifle it's hard to beat.

    Thanks for the replies, please keep them coming.
    Is the composit stock realy OK it's just I don't like the idea of minding a timber stock out in the field.
    And also any comments on the shorter barrel version.

    I think I will get a Tikka T3, the best price I can get a T3 lite stainless is €1100, about $1400. Ireland is an expensive palce to buy rifles.

    The T3 Lite is a nice gun. I have on in .243 and I love it. I liked it so much I bought a second one just like it. Its shoots very well. The synthetic stock is just fine. I would like to have one that has a higher quality fell to it but the bottom line is the gun shoot very well with it right out of the box. My hats off to Tikka. They make a good gun.

    If you can find a T3 Varmint in one of the WSM chamberings (270, 7mm, or 300) - SNATCH IT UP!!! You will not regret it.

    I do own a T3 Lite in 270 Win. It is a lights out shooter.
