Just ordered a manners EH1TK with their factory plastic mini chassis installed. Full length arca rail is going on it too. Went big on the barrel channel so I can use it with all the tikkas I have.

Now for the wait.

Thank you, I was asking for a friend that wants to customize his some.
If you're looking for an aftermarket Tikka bolt, LRI has em. However the one I have, doesn't quite fit as well as factory, it functions 100% and headspace was within a thou so they're well done.

Do they have controlled round feed bolt that would be awesome

You're lucky you got the Eko to fit. I got one for my T3X and the inlet and pillars were way off.

How’s the textured rustoleum holding up? What product did you use? Clear coat? I’m about to paint a B&C stock on a rem Mod Seven I re-contoured the grip for more vertical and a palm swell.

What contour is on the the 7saum?

It was a 5.5 contour they had on the shelf that I had them turn down as much as they were willing while leaving .725” on the muzzle for 5/8 threads. It’s a little heavier than I would have went if I spec’d from scratch but 2 weeks lead time beats 8 months. Some specs in pic below but don’t give the whole picture because it gets bigger at the muzzle. It only shaved a few ounces so probably could have saved more with fluting but I’m not big on fluting. Rifle weighs like 7lb 4 oz bare 3B707B90-604F-4972-891F-F6FCB60A6A35.png

Better than a expected with zero marks yet. I will say it was a little rough for a while but after a season it's perfect. I'm 99% sure I used Rustoleum aged iron multi color textured. Somewhere on this forum there's a post from a member I got the idea from.
