    Custom tikka t3 magazine

    Hi

    I am new to the forum but I am hoping to get some insight into if there is a market for a custom magazine for the tikka t3 rifle. I am the owner of a t3 in 7mm08 and have designed my own magazine that allows for longer COAL by 4mm. No other rifle modifications are needed.

    I have a working prototype that is 3d printed but was wondering if there are others out there who would be interested in them. They will cost a lot less than the official t3 mags.

    Thanks for the replies already. It's good to know there's some interest in the magazines.

    I am sourcing a supplier for the springs at the moment as my prototype is using my original tikka spring. But I will try to keep this thread updated as I go.

    I think there would be interest in a longer T3 223 mag, so that it is possible to load 75gn bullets into the lands.

    Yep definitely a long 223 mag. That would open the possibilities of long cartridges based on the 204 as well.

    Ask @kiwigreg, he is probably one of the top wildcater on this forum.
    I d say fit a 105 gr 6 mm a-max into the neck of a 204 case with the boat tail just below the neck/shoulder junction.( I haven't got any 6 mm projectile myself to give you an accurate dimension )

    Update

    I am having trouble sourcing the flat spring to be used in the magazine. Does anyone knows someone who makes them or can supply some factory tikka ones?

    Even if its another brand but similar dimensions I am sure i can make it work.

    At this stage I have only made a modified version of the medium magazine as that is what i have access too. Down the track i will make other calibers and also larger capacities.
