Tikka T1X Bottom Metal

Has anyone installed the DIP bottom metal plate? Just wondering if its the same that Mountain Tactical sells, and if not what the difference maybe. Thanks

No. I have both of mine in KRG Bravo stocks. I don't think I would pay $90 to replace the unit on the OEM injection molded stock. What benefit does it provide?

The only benefit would be that you could add more torque to action screws and replacing the plastic with metal. Thanks, maybe that would be wasting my money.

Did the Bravo Stock improve accuracy?

I don't think it did with mine. Might even shoot a little worse. Hard to say. For me it is an improvement for PRS style shooting in general. So it's a plus for me

I bought a metal trigger guard for my Sako Finnfire from DIP. It was $50 but it was money well spent. Did it improve accuracy? Probably not, but it looks a lot better and that’s good enough for me. I put my Tikka T1X in a walnut Boyd’s pro varmint stock. I plan on replacing the bottom metal as well when I can. I do believe the Mountain Tactical piece is the same as the DIP piece. They both differ in shape from the stock plastic one.

I went with the Mountain Tactical Tikka T1x Bottom Metal & Extended Mag Release T1xDBM (Normally $149.98), and I was able to get it for $89.99 with Military Discount.

I have used several Mountain Tactical and DIP, Inc products on Tikka's and CZ's rifles. Both make quality products, but MT offered a SIGNIFICANT discount for First Responders/Military. It's been over a year or since my last order so I am not sure what they currently offer. MT does make some GREAT QUALITY products!

No, they are not the same. From the pictures I've seen I think our "loop" looks slightly wider
and it is definitely further forward(more room for gloved hands). Our mag well opening is
longer for ease of mag swaps(might be ever so slightly wider too).

Hope this helps.
