tikka 595 mag conversions

Recommended Posts

Set about sorting these out last week. Slipped a 595 action into the mill and opened it up to accept an AICS magazine. I have stocks of floor plates in now for this action. The mag will not sit high enough without this machining work. It means a re proof, so its best done in conjunction with a re barrel etc.

 

The video [ if it works], shows the action dummied up with the floor plate and a 10 shot magazine. I only had a few 6mmBr rounds handy, but it shows it feeding flawlessly. Ok, there is no barrel on the action, but it works, trust me.

 

The magazine has my new 6mmBr/22br/20 br/6ppc/22ppc etc conversion, which will shortly be available as an aftermarket kit.

Looks like a great idea. Can you post pics of a finished rifle with mag system when you have one ready

Cheers

That's exactly what Stuart Anslem did to my 595 using CDI precision bottom metal. Following CDI precision's instructions to the letter, my tikka feeds butter smooth from AICS in my Manners GAT stock - zero feeding and extraction problems.

It's a well worth getting this conversion done!

I have a suspicion it was my new foxing rig in the vid, almost ready to go test, just waiting on a brass neck pilot,..IMG_2523.JPG Struggling with the tech to get pics
