    Billet Tikka T3 magazines

    Been chatting to Mountain Tactical in the States. They're doing another production run for delivery in Feb 2018. Worked out a deal where they will ship 4 mags per order for $20USD shipping.

    Anyone have any interest in this? I only want 2-3 but happy to add a few more to the order. Could chuck a few other items in there as well such as LA bolt stops. They will label the package at wholesale pricing so that it stays under the magic export figures.

    If anyone is interested could let me know via PM and we can sort out details. I would like to have the order placed by 8 December 2017 so will cut off then.

    They look very cool.

    Just got some through a guy in aussie, be worth emailing him and seeing what he can offer you. Watersrifleman@gmail.com

    The mags I got seem to work, spring is a little loose for the last round or 2 in the mag (rattles around a lot) once there is more than 3 in je mag it tightens up fine. Have played with it at home and works ok, yet to give it a good workout in the rifle.

    Came in pieces to be reassembled, not too challenging.

    Those ones look seoously nice though, much better than the boring black I got

    Also i believe the LA mags (3.4 inches length) do fit and feed the short mag cases, WSM and SAUM.

    That would be great if they did. I'll check in with them for some feedback. Shooting a 7 Rem Mag at the moment and once I decide to get a bit more serious it's going to get short magged. Be ideal to reuse the mags.

    I'm sure they do, it says it on their website and I read guys talking about exactly that on a 6.5 saum FB Group based in the US

    are the 223 mags the same length as standard or is it possible to fit longer 223 cartridges (e.g., loaded with 75gn bullets)?

    Sorry mate... I stand corrected....The billet mag has a longer coal length than the standard 223 magazine cartridge.

    223 Magazine:
    - .223 family of cartridges
    - Standard – 4 rounds
    - Extended – 6 rounds
    - COAL – 2.60 inches

    Good service experience from Mountain Tactical. I have a LA AICS bottom metal on the way. Will finally be able to seat those VLDs out further and fit them in a magazine.
