    Description from their brochure:
    is a highly functional, feature laden stock for the Tikka T3, Remington 700, and other rifles. The W3C combines precise aluminum "V" bedding with tool-less adjustments, (length-of-pull and cheek piece height), durability and excellent ergonomics. Right out of the box it allows the use of AICS style magazines in your rifle without any special bottom metal. Numerous types of accessories can be added to the many attachment points, including handstops, sling mounts, rails, bipods, monopods, and more. Our modular grip panels allow the shooter to tailor the fit of the stock to his/her hand which, combined with the other adjustments, yield a stock set up exactly as it needs to be for that particular shooter.
    Currently available for:
    • Tikka T3 (non-magnum length calibers).
    • Remington 700 short and long action.
    • Badger M2008 short action (uses AICS or AI AW magazines).
    • Sako M995 (AICS CIP length magazines).


    With future plans to include:
    • Sako Quad (limited production).
    • AI AE.
    • Badger M2008 long action (AICS CIP length magazines).
    • others as they come up.


    It will not fit these:
    • Tikka T3 in long action calibers (there is currently no magazine which will work as the AICS magnum magazines will not work with the T3).
    • Tikka 595/695.
    • Sako 75/85.
    • Surgeon XL action.
    • Howa 1500.


    It is a full Aluminum Chassis with options for a fixed or folding stock.

    The chassis is very light due to the streamlined bare bones setup. I don't have a number but it is pretty light compared to a composide chassis.

    Their buttstock is a little different compared to other makes as it is a dual connected stock similar in principle to the Choate Tactical stock with a portion of the buttstock in line with the bottom of the grip:

    The Bedding block is a drop in system with a strong v-block

    Lastly, they also make a cool oversize bolt handle accessory that doesn't require any change to the existing bolt handle. It is a polymer screw over system. It actually is a great size and feels very sturdy and good in the hand.

    It is a very good idea as it only costs about 30$, is available in Black, Tan, or OD, and doesn't require the extra gunsmithing costs either!

    Their bolt knob is great. I've had one on my 700 for a year or two. Nice and solid, great piece.

    I'd love to handle one of those chassis to see how it feels

    Beautiful. I was thinking about jazzing up the tikka, and dont want to add weight doing it. Ill have to check out there website to see the actual weight. If the weight is right next step is finding a dealer.

    Yea I forgot to ask the actual number when interviewing the guy but I can tell you it felt pretty light compared to a lot of the other chassis systems. The only one lighter was the Eberlestock
