    I want to build a custom stock for my Tikka T3. I have the synthetic stock model and the magazine trigger guard, magwell and mag release are built into the stock. I thought about simply cutting the base of the stock and inletting it into the stock.
    But it would be simpler if I could find the bottom metal like what must be used in the Hunter model with the wood stock. any idea where a guy could get the bottom metal (probably plastic) for the Tikka T3 rifle?
    Thanks,
    Dano

    Talk to Tom manners, they make t3 inletted stocks and can tell you how to handle your bottom "metal". Please post up what you find. Lots of us tikka owners would benefit from a new stock
