Thread: New mag release catch required.

  1. #1

    New mag release catch required.

    Well, the bottom trigger guard/mag housing on the Tikka 695 was playing up and causing feeding issues.

    Dilemma... New trigger guard (costly) or new extended mag catch (free)...I opted for the latter! So I decided to make a new one from scratch
    Not using plastic but using some T6 alloy I had, after a fair bit of filing and fetling I finished it.

    Hmm that might be a bit of a longer hand job than the last.

    Post me a pic though.

    I made bottom metal for a Howa to turn it into a 10 shot DM, from the std floor plate model.

    Ah yes but the mag conversion works flawlessly all the time and is almost silent in operation...no clickety clack as you watch your quarry running off!

    $175, ouch, that means here about 300 plus...the hand job is looking more favourable but I don't come cheap.

    it seems that tikka t3 has all the add-on goodies made for it yet the better tikkas... 590,595 ,690,695 don't have owt apart from a bolt shroud (and its only clumsy folk or people with plastic phobia who buy them)
    So ...... why not be different and dare I say exclusive and start making us good tikka owners some aftermarket goodies that we can buy here in the uk?!!!!!!!!!

    regards
