I made a few changes to mine.

Victor Titan Cheek riser: A must. Fits well too.

Tikka pistol/vertical grip: Meh, wouldn’t bother with it again.

T3 recoil pad: It added some needed length.

Talley 1” low Rings: They were nice, but I changed scopes.

419 20 MOA rail and Leupold Rifleman 30MM medium rings. Good range of adjustment and tacticool.

Yoyo Dave Spring: Got it with free some other stuff, otherwise I wouldn’t bother with it. I actually made it heavier than the way the instructions said to set it up.

Lead: 12oz added to the forearm and 3.5lb added to the stock. I like it. Very well balanced.

Scopes:
Leupold Freedom Rimfire 3x9, hated it. Horrible eye relief and a very narrow field of view.
Nikon Rimfire 2x7. Much better scope than the Leupold, but not enough magnification for my use. Good for hunting.
Nikon M-tactical 3x12. Perfect for my use.

Wanted: KRG Bravo. I’m not a big fan of the Tikka stock.

Thanks, I still have the best of them that I've seen, it's going nowhere.

My .17 HMR T1x is in a KRG Bravo. I tried the T3 recoil pad and grip and forend mods to the factory stock on my .22LR T1x and it was ok, but ended up ordering another KRG Bravo stock for it last night. Sorry you didn't like the Leupold. The VX 3-9X33 EFR is one of my favorite rimfire scopes.

If I decide to not get a Bergara I may end up ordering a Bravo stock for my T1x. Depends on how the T1x shoots I guess

Mine is basically set up like this. The KRG Bravo is The Gray version.

DIP 0 degree scope base, and I think lower Weaver scope rings.

Scope is not ideal but works for now.

The channels in the forearm have plenty of room for lead. I used whatever size lead sinkers that fit, and silicone to secure it. It comes out easily. I took it out once to add more weight.

The stock has a piece of styrofoam in it. Remove the butt plate, then use a pair of needle nose to pull out the plastic grid. The styrofoam falls right out. I wrapped 4oz flat stinkers in shop rags and stuffed them in there. A bit hillbilly, but it’s all reversable.

Mine wasn’t the EFR variety. I should’ve specified it was the rimfire model. I wanted to try the EFR, but Leupold couldn’t get one made in the 6 weeks I had one on order.

Just a Magpul bipod and Leupold scope at this point but I wouldn't be surprised if it got dressed in an Oryx at some point.

I went a little overboard on my T1X... if there is such a thing. I originally purchased the rifle for entrance into the NRL22 base class, but soon realized I would not be there long, so I started to modify:

The optic is an Arken Optics 6-24X50 (34mm tube)
The stock is a Bell and Carlson Target/Competition stock (T1X specific)
Bottom metal by Mountain Tactical
Sterk canted bolt handle
DIP 20moa pic rail
Gemtech Inert Suppressor (silences a little, but mostly lowers my poi)
Harris 6X9

Recently got a T1X 17 HMR. Talley low rings, 4x12 Nikon, and a bipod. Groups are scary so far and I have not adjusted trigger as of yet. I am quite pleased so far.

Hello gmd1950,

How much weight was added by using the Bell&Carlson sporter style stock? (or saved??)
Also I am wandering if that particular stock will also work for the 17 HMR version.

Thanks.

Haven't weighed it but its a bit, I felt it needed some weight personally. I shot a friends in the same stock and liked the little extra heft.
