Thread: Tikka M595/695 Replacement Bottom Metal.

  1. #1

    Tikka M595/695 Replacement Bottom Metal.

    As mentioned in an earlier thread, I contacted UKgunworks about producing a replacement unit for the above rifles. I have been advised that the cost will be circa 185-195 each, and that I will need to come up with a list of 15 people to make the production costs viable. They are also hoping to locate a better quality magazine to replace the original.

    I haven't had any dealings with them previously, so any feedback would be useful. Let me know if you are potentially interested.

    PM, replied on the subject, as to experience with UK Gunworks, I have had a pair of replacement action screws from them, which were/are superb. If they come up with a replacement magazine for the 595 & 695... I would be a definite Taker.

    Well Done for the efforts so far.

    Is there a problem with the original magazines? I have two 3 round mags and a 6 round mag for my 595 and have never had any problems with any of them. A couple of higher capacity say ten round mags would be nice though for use when target shooting in certain events. I notice that Howa will be introducing high capacity detachable magazines soon and wonder if these could form the basis for conversion???

    If it would fit the M690 and was of good quality I'd be interested.

    Depending on the quality and the price, I would be interested, also would they be 3 or 5 shot.

    Thanks for the replies. I'll try and find out a bit more about the mags tomorrow.

    UKgunworks are at the CLA game fair - stand V1246. I'll have a chat to them and put a post up about the magazines, and whether the bottom metal would also fit the M590/690 series.
    It looks like they already do quite a few replacement items for the T3, bolt shrouds and handles, bottom metal etc.

    Very interesting.
    I have a 595 project brewing.
    A decent mag system would be a real bonus.

    I'd be interested, but only if the replacement bottom metal used the original factory magazines.
