I've got too many projects going.
Tikka T3x
260 AI
X-Caliber ultralight
Stockys carbon
Mountain Tactical bottom metal and scope rail
Zeiss Conquest V6
Zeiss Precision rings

Tenon threads- spaced on getting chamber photos 20220605_184757.jpg

And a titanium thread protector- there's a very slight taper on this toward the shooter to add just a touch of je ne sais quoi

And the Stocky's stock. The inletting was so tight I actually had to sand it just a bit. Also beveled the edges so it wouldn't chip out. Paint is inbound.

Just installed that VG2 stock on my Howa. Did you snag one of the factory blew ones to get that carbon fiber unfinished look? How do you like it? Super comfortable stock to shoot in my opinion.

They just came out with the carbon stocks for Tikka. They're not offering a painted option yet.

I have a regular LRC stock on a rifle I built for myself, I think I like this one just a little better.

What’d you go with for the paint and what was your process?

Awesome build, nice work!
