I put my T1x in a Boyd’s At-One Thumbhole stock and it fit perfectly — after a bit of simple and easy inletting of the magwell area. I also did a small bit of inletting of the barrel channel just to...

Really like the fit of the thumbhole. Was a little unsure at first. But after shooting it I found it very comfortable and not even a mental factor once I got to shooting. The finish is a tad slick in...

T1x vs. Ruger Precision Rimfire

I would think that a Tikka T1x would be smoother and more accurate than a Ruger RPR rimfire in 22LR. However the investment is a good bit more. So is it that much smoother and more accurate for the...

What specific tool(s) did you use to open up the channel? Dremel? Rasp? Chisel? All of them?

I have the Kidd 2-stage set at 6 oz/4 oz on my Kidd Supermatch and like it a lot. $290.

Best rimfire after 39A

OK, so the Marlin 39A is the best lever-action rimfire made. But they’re not making new ones and good used ones are scarce unless you’re willing to over pay. And I’m still looking.
