Is this mag offered as a 5 round?...x10 is too big and makes the rifle awkward, for me at least. Neither is x10 suitable for prone. Do you have x5 or know if/when they'll be available?

It's April. Are they nearly here yet? :-)

Expected early May now, slight delay as we've squeezed a new polymer single road loading block for load dev into the production run. They're being made now.

 

The test run versions I've seen so far are lush. The new black hard anodised finish is something special.

A quick update on the new batch of milled T3 Aluminium magazines.

  • 6.5x55 types are done
  • .30-06 types are done
  • .308 awaiting finishing
  • .223 being cut

The production is slightly behind schedule, as we've squeezed in some single shot loaders to the run, so we are expecting these in late June now all being well.

 

I'll update again when they arrive and have some tasty pictures to share.

Update on the T3 mags, we were expecting them early July but the eta on their arrival has been put back around 4 weeks due to a delay on the follower run which are a new molded type using a slippy black polymer instead of the white acetyl on earlier versions.

 

The magazine bodies are all cut and finished, springs are done, just waiting on the followers now. As soon as they arrive I'll post some pics.

They are finally on the way!

 

Following some delays with the followers, the mags themselves were all done a while back, we're expecting them to be with us next week all being well.

 

Once here we'll be assembling them, so once I have the first complete I'll share some photos.

 

Should all be completed, packaged and onsale before the end of the month.

A quick update: all the magazines parts are now with us, we're now busy assembling the eight different versions.

 

They look lush!

 

It'll be a few days until they are all complete and packaged, photos to follow soon.

The new Tikka T3, T3x and Lithgow LA102 fit aluminium magazines are now available!

 

The delay was a worthwhile one, a number of revisions to allow some types to fit the new Lithgow Crossover LA102 as well as the T3 and T3x.

 

All milled from 6061-T6 aluminium and hard anodized in black they combine refined looks with extreme durability.

We've been working closely with David who makes them to extend the range of calibres, there are now 4 calibre options in 6 and 10 round versions for each:

  • .223 case family
  • .308 case family
  • 6.5x55 and x57 tapered cases
  • .30-06 case family (handles nearly 20 calibres - detailed listings on the product)

Plus, we have an excellent universal calibre single round loading block.

 

Quick note: a 6mm BR, BR family & .22-250 10 round magazine is due in early 2018.

They look great but the £135 price tag is excessive to say the least

All prices include delivery.

 

They are more expensive than the previous versions mainly due to Post Brexit exchange rates, as with all imported shooting gear.

 

Also, the black hard anodised finish is more expensive to produce than natural grey, but based on customer surveys black was the clear winner.

 

Considering these are milled from two pieces of solid aluminium and should outlast most owners, it's still significantly cheaper than bottom metal + inletting + AICS magazines if you want a dependable 10 round magazine.
