Hey guys, looking for advice on optics(leaning towards Leupold VX-3i CDS) , bipod, sling, recoil pad that work well with this specific rifle in your experiences. Lightweight preferred. Thanks in advance!

Vertical grip for sure. Limbsaver pad (should be called "shoulder saver") Clearance the stock as needed to fully float the barrel. @Formidilosus advises more than "dollar bill" clearance.
Scopes are all over. Depends on how much you want to spend and your intended use.

If you haven’t already found it, there is a semi-custom Tikka thread on the firearms subforum. Lots of ideas in there.

The factory plastic stock and heavy trigger spring leave a lot to be desired. I would upgrade the stock, the trigger spring, and the bottom plastic.

High desert makes a really nice factory clone bottom metal in aluminum. Great piece.

The YoDave trigger spring makes this factory trigger as nice as any triggertech.

Any of the McMillan, Mesa, or AG composite stocks are super light and fantastic fit/finish.
