    Tikka .223 mag COAL

    Morning all.

    Having trouble finding the standard measurement for the .223 mag in a Tikka.

    Was looking at the Mountain Tactical billet mags and they have 2.60 inches (6.6cm) as standard... is that the same or longer than the factory?

    2.3 inches or 58.5mm for all those interested!

    Dug it out of a review... took a wee while.

    Just out of interest, what is the red tape required to import a few of those billet mags from tikkaperformance.com ?

    Hey mate, we just did a bulk order. Pretty easy going. Should have another batch ready in Feb if you get on the list. Definitely call them as they will "modify" the declared pricing a bit and shipping is relatively cheap.

    Wicked. I'll get on the list... I think I'll need some extra mag space for when I go .22 Terminator....

    Have already submitted and paid, let me check in with them and see if there is any room left in one of the boxes.

    Yeah, no dramas. Not sure how I missed the buy!
    Looks a good quality product too.
