Bell and Carlson Tikka T3 - M40 Style - Varmint/Tactical Stocks
The ultimate synthetic stock for your Tikka T3 M40 Style (Varmint/Tactical).
Bell and Carlson stocks are constructed through a “hand lay-up” process using a variety of composite materials. The composites include fiberglass, aramid fibres, graphite, epoxy gel coats and laminating resins, and polyurethane reinforcement with milled fiberglass. These composites deliver a warm solid feel, rather than the hollow, toy-like feel you get from injection moulded stocks.

- Drop in fit for TAC, Varmint, SS Varmint, Super Varmint and Tikka T3 Long and Short Actions with Varmint/Heavy contour barrels
- Full aluminium bedding block extends from the grip to the front swivel stud, free floating barrel
- Bedding block incorporates recoil lug and eliminates the factory recoil lug which is a weak link, especially in the larger calibres
- Durable finish
- Premium recoil pad (Pachmayr© Decelerator© comes standard on some models)
- Sling swivel studs (unless stated otherwise)

Fitting the stock
Fitting your Bell and Carlson stock is an easy process in most cases as it is a drop-in stock. You simply remove the barrelled action from the original stock and bolt it into the Bell and Carlson stock. However, as there are variations in manufacturer’s original equipment or variations in the model, it may be necessary to remove minimal material from the magazine and/or barrel channel area. Modifications can typically be achieved with the use of “Dremel tools”, wooden dowel wrapped with sandpaper, or of course a barrel channel tool. Glass bedding of the stock is not necessary but may be preferred for an absolute positive fit. Enquire with your local gunshop about their fitting services or for more information.
