My new T1X 17 hmr
« on: December 28, 2018, 10:11:44 PM »

I picked up a T1X 17HMR last week at Scheels in Fargo.  I threw the 3-9 cheapo scope from my old Marlin (dovetail mounts) on it and shot a box of shells.  I was decently impressed even without proper rests and factory setting on the trigger.

I also recognized that this rifle needed some things to get the most from it so I ordered an EGW 11mm dovetail rail for the CZ's from Midway (birthday discount) and  an Ernie the Gunsmith Varmint trigger spring for T3's.  I have a nice T3 Sporter stock on hand (from my 6.5X55 Sporter which now sits in a GRS Berzerk) and tonight I went to work on the new T1X. I have a Sightron SIII 8-32 and SWFA SS Tac medium picatiny rings.  Also put my Mack Bros. Tango suppressor and Sinclair FTR Bipod on it !

The bottom metal and magazine box didnt fit in the narrow opening of the stock but it was a simple matter to open it up 2-3 mm.  There is a small plastic pin at the back of the bottom metal that I accomodated with a drill bit behind the rear action bolt ( I didnt want to cut the pin off in case I wanted to sell it as factory stock in future).
The Happy Result:

The deep belly of the stock makes the magazine a bit hard to pluck out, but it
nearly falls free when the release is pressed - I'll live with that :bthumb:
