    Looking for an aftermarket stock for my newly acquired Tikka T3 lite .243. Love the rifle, hate the plastic stock. Shoots great but looks like S@$t. Nothing too pricey.... under $400.... new or used.

    Much Obliged,

    check out Red Hawk rifles. They have Bell and Carlson stocks for Tikkas at the best price..

    Thanks Ultra..... I am checking into the Red Hawk site; Anyone know anything about Helmick arms and their Tikka offerings?

    I bought a Helmick for a custom build i did for my dad. I had them leave the recoil lugout though because we smashed a remington style lug in there instead. The stock is great though.

    Another Tikka site said a few ordered and payment was accepted but nothing ever shipped nor any communication. I emailed three days in a rowwith no response........ Too bad cause the stocks look sweet! I went with the Tan with Black webbing.... Hoping it will look good with the stainless......??? :)
