GEN 5 WR
« on: May 05, 2019, 12:54:14 AM »

Hi everyone, got myself a tikka t3x super varmint in .223, still awaiting my license before i can get it.( in south africa it can take long)

This will be my first rifle. Joined our local club and shoots there with a friends that works with me. He so kind to let me use his rifle 8)

Want to get the gen 5 WR from waltersrifleman since I want to shoot the heavier bullets. (70-80grain)

Question : Would I have to make any other adjustments to fit the mag since I will be putting this rifle in a boyeds at one stock?

The Waters’ mags are very nice and high quality.  They will work in factory bottom metal (plastic) with no modification.  If your Boyd’s stock is using the original bottom plastic it will work well.  You may want to look at replacing the factory bottom plastic with aftermarket bottom metal.

Good luck with the license process and congratulations on a fine rifle choice!

On another note, I was looking at the Boyd’s at one stock for my Tikka T1 and the sharp edges did not fit me comfortably.  Boyd’s has a new thumb-hole version of the At One that seems to be a bit more ergonomic but I have not held it yet.  You might want to check it out.
