    Tikka T3 action dimensions

    Hi, I have been hunting around the internet trying to find some dimensions for a tikka t3 action but have found nothing. Does anyone know where I could find a good set of dimensions or does someone have a t3 they wouldn’t mind measuring for me? I need the total length, width and location of action screws?

    I have an old model tikka m65 that very few inlet stocks for so I’m just wondering if a t3 stock could be modified to fit the m65 acceptably.
    The other option is weatherby vanguard stock which is looking promising at the moment
    Thanks

    Contact DPT in Hamilton, as forum members DPT or Friwi.
    As they make alloy chassis frames so will know the exact dimensions.

    I've got a spare T3 Lite stock that I can measure for you if you need.

    Thanks mimms2 it looks like it should work with some xtra in letting. My action is 32mm wide the recoil lug is 11mm back so the new recoil lug (big traditional one) recess will be in fresh material and the new screw holes would be far enough away from the originals that you could just fill them with bedding compound and forget about them.
    I would line the action up with the stock I wanted before buying just to check there won’t be any nasty surprises.
    Cheers
