We only use quality gear at Australian Tactical Precision (ATP), this principal also extends to the products we manufacture.
One size does not fit all, that also applies to bag riders. There are many rear bag manufacturers out there and the spacing between the ears can be significantly different. Some bag riders are quite wide and if you try using these with a bag that has 10mm or 3/8″ spacing then it won’t track well, likewise if you use a thin bag rider in a wide bag. We’ve seen bag riders that are round on the bottom edge but this also doesn’t help with accuracy as it promotes cant. Other bag riders are also not very high so your buttstock sides can foul on the bag ears.
Our Ultimate Bag Riders are made in 3 different widths to fit the majority of rear bag spacings, 10mm (3/8″), 13mm (1/2″) and 19mm (3/4″), measure the lowest section between the bag ears to see which will be the best fit. If you are using a flat rear bag without ears, then the 19mm (3/4″) version is the best option. All these bag riders are the same length 140mm (5.5″) and are 21mm tall (13/16″) so that your buttstock will clear the ears. These bag riders are parallel to the forend and barrel of the Tikka TAC A1 / TACT A1 so will track without any elevation change. All edges are chamfered and contoured to avoid snagging.
INSTALLATION NOTE: Remove the two screws from your factory TAC A1 buttstock picatinny rail and bolt on your Ultimate Bag Rider. No need to remove the dowel pin from your chassis.
