The Mountain Tactical AICS Bottom Metal takes the original successful AICS Conversion Kit from Mountain Tactical Company and incorporates upgrades from customer feedback Mountain Tactical added a full magazine well to improve magazine retention and to speed up magazine changes. The mag catch has been improved to prevent premature mag release under heavy recoil. This Gen2 CTR AICS conversion kit has a textured barricade stop as well.
The Tikka T3 and T3x has changed the firearm industry’s perception of a what a precision hunting rifle should be world-wide. While the Tikka excels in almost every aspect a shooter could ask for in a rifle, one shortcoming hand loaders have struggled with since the rifle’s inception is the limited magazine length. While several bottom metal companies have attempted to make a bottom metal compatible with both these magazines and the T3/T3x, none have been able to create a solution that actually allows the use of longer case lengths… until now…
This bottom metal has been 6 years in the making! Through these years of trial and error, the Mountain Tactical design team has been able to create a kit that allows the shooter to utilize the full length available in these military grade magazines.
It is important to remember that once a rifle is modified beyond the scope its original design, additional and unforeseen work may be necessary for reliable function. Thus, installation, final fit and finish is best accomplished by a competent gunsmith.
