    composite stocks

    hey all, i have a tikka t3 and i was wondering what the advantage would be if i fitted it with a new composite stock. i dont know much about them but i heard that they are pretty light etc.. would it make a diff with the way the gun shoots? or should i just stick with the t3 plastic stock? any thoughts on this chaps?

    Re: composite stocks

    Do you need it? How does it shoot now ? I imagine pretty good. It will be stiffer if we are talking about the bell and carson ones i doubt it will be lighter. If its a hunting hack i wouldnt worry.

    Re: composite stocks

    What do you want from it. First thing id do would be change the plastic bolt shroud. The stock will be an improvement but are there other things you can soend the money on? Gps binos decent boots. If it shoots well and is nice to carry a new stock would be last on my list . But still on my list though

    What does the current stock weigh?
    If my work annoys me, I cull them

    Word of advice, don't do it via the web. The shroud I got was loose and rattled. The retailer was fine about swapping it, but I had to try a few to get one that was silent. Evidently I wasn't the first
