I bought a 243SL and really like how the rifle shoots. I'm no crazy about the stock. It makes a hollow sound when bumped and it just feels off. Is it possible to swap a t3 stock onto a t3x. I have a Hunter stock I am going to try but I also want to try the Forest stock. I love a roll over cheek piece.

Thanks

You can put a T3x barreled action into a t3 stock, but the wider ejection port on the T3x may be slightly obstructed. Nothing you couldn’t fix, but you may have to deal with some refinishing if you’re thinking about using a wood stock. A t3 stocks will have an aluminum recoil lug so you may want to install a steel lug.

Have you done this? The plastic bags in the stock is rather creative. I had considered great stuff foam to quiet things down.

I've done several with the expanding foam. It's the first thing I do after firing and knowing it shoots well. It definitely quiets the stock and doesn't add much weight at all. My hunting buddy uses silicone caulk in his since he wants a bit of added weight. I bought a 243SL for my wife a couple years ago and it is the best shooting gun we have and shoots anything from 75gr to 100gr.

Every tikka I have has 5 or 6 plastic grocery bags in the stock. Easy, no muss no fuss, light and no echo. Free, too.

Expanding foam works. I've never tried plastic bags, but it sounds like a good idea. I've filled up the stock with a handful of the packing peanuts or even rolled up bubble wrap. Never bought any, there is always some lying around from packages purchased. Expanding foam does work, but the other options are less messy and reversible.


Most people don't really want the truth.

They just want constant reassurance that what they believe is the truth.

if you go expanding foam, go with the one made for windows so it doesn't try blow out your stock. Use masking tape on edge. lot easier to keep clean

All of them do something better than the 30-06, but none of them do everything as well.
