My finished Tikka T3 7mm-08 with a new Bell & Carson composite stock in desert tan & black spiderweb. It has a 6"-9" Harris Bipod. A Limbsaver vibration dampener and on top is a Zeiss 6.5-20-50 scope. What do you think??

Nice looking setup. I'm sure it's a shooter.

I've honestly never heard of the vibration dampener. I assume that's the piece on your barrel just in front of the forend of the stock? What is the theory of how that's supposed to work?

edit: I like the stock a lot. Personally, if I was going aftermarket, I would have gone with a vertical grip. But that's still a huge upgrade over the factory T3 stock.

Nice looking rig and being a Tikka, I have no doubt she will shoot well.

Never tried the Limbsavers barrel deresonator but have heard they can help with some barrels especially the light weight thin ones. Figure most of the rifles I keep can shoot better than I do without added accessories so never bothered trying them.

You did the exact same thing I did for my wife's T3 (minus the vibration damper), same caliber as well.



And it IS a shooter. rifle

I have the same thing with the brown stock and black webbing and a trijicon scope. It is my go to hunting rifle.
