    Bell & Carlson has a new stock out for them. New Products Bell and Carlson
    Looking to upgrade the stock stock with one, what do you guys think about them?
    This is the only aftermarket stock that I have seen for the T3 also, that applies to hunting stocks.

    thanks,
    brian

    I'm going to order one in a couple weeks and I'm surre it will be a nice stock for the money, but still not Manners quality.The main problem I have with the factory stock is the hollow sound, but that can be fixed with expanding foam.

    Manners make many of there stocks for the t3 you just have to call and talk to them. Mcmillan makes the a-5 and the sako hunter, sako varmint and one more I can't think of. Manners and mcmillan also make all them in left hand. Reonoke makes a tactical folder. And wild dog out of australia makes a number of good looking stocks for the t3 also. If you reballel your t3 you can have your smith put a rem style recoil and I know mcmillan and manners will inlet for those modifications. All of these are better options than the bell and carlson.

    It's about time. I've been hanging onto my T3 Lite 06 waiting for someone to come out with a decent aftermarket stock. This looks good...

    Mine will be here TODAY!!! (ordered last week)

    I know it's not a Manners stock, but the Tikka is not a Surgeon action either.

    I'm looking for a "better" stock to shoot/hunt with

    That's my way of thinking also, when I saw that they had come out with one. This is going on a hunting rifle. Pics when you get it together would be great.

    IT"S HERE!

    Looks realy nice, feels lite. Fit is snug ln the receiver area. Everything fits well. The lug is solid in the stock.

    Pictures after my camera charges up.

    I chose the olive with black spider (kind of tactical)

    Good deal, glad to hear that.
    Can't wait for the pics, because i'm leaning towards the olive w/ black spider myself.
