    I didn't see that part yet. Rifle will shoot the same if you toss that in the bin... meaning in aftermarket stocks it just won't be there...no harm. It is only a feature to satisfy the " narrow barrel channel gap = good rifle" In theory it would shoot just as well if you saw off the stock 5mm behind the recoil lug... edi

    Thanks, I was guessing it could only be the mag well. Our stocks have a bit more room there. edi

    Depends on the stock. The one we fitted needed nothing done and it was a factory bedded aftermarket stock.. Which part on your stock needed re-working? edi

    You are right... just don't have one spare. edi

    Well the ergonomics are so much better for starters. No Open sights that foul with the scope bell, the bolt will in all likelihood clear a scope much better leading to a lower mounted scope. Trigger out the box much better.... and I can just drop it into my favourite T3 hunting or target stock and have a great trainer set-up. That is worth something to me. The CZ's will have to go, hardly use em anyway. edi

    I recon I'll have a 6.5-20x50 Conquest left over to use on the T1X. Throw it in a lightweight tactical stock and start with off-hand practice in the garden. Handling & ergonomics will be the same as on my hunting rifles. The only reason I don't shoot 22's is because the stocks on my CZ's and scope height are all wrong, for me at least. Bit of ammo/load testing and off we go... edi

    Thanks Andrew, thought it would be. Perfect. I had the T1x in my hands a few times but didn't take notice. edi

    Hi Gyr, could you take a picture of the top of your 11mm rail. Does it not have the usual T3 screw on rail option? What cal did you get? edi
  10. Fantastic work Andy. Lot of work... great result. edi

    Opinions on Sightron scopes?

    My favourite hunting scope is a 3-20x50 PMII ultra short. Most of my deer are shot either slightly further out or just small parts of the body visible in high grass/cover. Even the odd off-hand close range deer is no problem with that. I think 6x42 is too much mag for some situations and too little for most situations. Even at low light higher mag really helps you to see what you are shooting at. For hunting and a bit of target shooting crossover 6-24 would be my limit. A customer got a SIII FFP Mil 6-24 through us, it is a very clear scope and he is very happy with it. For hunting I prefer lockable turrets. edi

    I mostly advice others to try get the straight stock if CZ but then you get the heavy barrel with that. The T1X is what many have waited for, just put it in your tactical or hunting T3 aftermarket stock and practice in the garden if big enough. Even rabbit/crow shooting is much more fun with a proper fitting stock that you might have invested many hours of training with. This is the missing link for Tikka shooters. edi

    The T1X stock is way better than the CZ hogs back version. Then the open sights of a cz force the scope to be mounted extra high + the stupid bolt that catches the scope. I have a few CZ's... reliable but awkward rifles, can't wait to replace them with a T1X. edi
  14. Thank god I got rid of all my optilocks . Never had issues with pica rails and even 6$ Sun Optic mounts are more reliable and straighter than optilocks. edi
