Default Just got my Manners

Hey all,
Just wanted to show off my Tikka 6.5 w/ Manners stock that I just took delivery of. Installed AtlasWorks bottom metal and bolt knob. Topped it with a Leupold VX5-HD.

Not yet, no. Had golf yesterday and it's a little breezy today.

Love the scope gents. Have one on my 22-250. So, I got a sister duplicate scope.

I got mine in about four months, which isn't terrible from what I hear and understand.

Looks great, besides the bolt being on the wrong side!

Great set-up! I had almost the exact same rifle -T3, lefty, and color built for my son last year as a graduation present. We put a Bartlein barrel on it, but I question the need for that.

He's loves the bolt throw radius. I like the almost drop in fit of the T3. Based on the gunsmith's recommendation, we went with no bedding and just torqued the action in. Incredibly accurate set-up. It equals my 6.5CM with a Defiance action, and it's a lot cheaper.
