The Next Generation of Bottom Metal For Precision Bolt Action Rifles

Introducing RedSnake Tactical's nEXTgen Bottom Metal for Remington 700 & custom actions and for Tikka T3/T3x rifles. Our patent-pending, extended length designs allow longer overall cartridge lengths to feed from magazines compared to OALs that have been previously possible with existing DBM/bottom metal parts.
Extended M5 Bottom Metal
We are very excited to announce the the release of our extended M5 DBM aftermarket trigger guard. The M5 nEXTgen AICS Bottom Metal utilizes standard 3.055" AICS magazines and is compatible with any custom action that shares the Rem 700 footprint. By using a magazine without the front binder plate, rounds with an OAL of 2.95" will feed from magazines without having to modify the action's feed ramp. This DBM shares the standard M5 inlet footprint*.
Tikka T3/T3x Bottom Metal
Our Tikka nEXTgen Bottom Metal is available in both short action and long action versions. The T3 nEXTgen AICS (SA) Bottom Metale allows rounds with an OAL of 2.95" to feed from AI AE Mk1 magazines and is designed as a drop-in DBM replacement triggerguard for factory stocks and aftermarket stocks with factory T3 inlet.

Our nEXTgen Bottom Metal is available in two long action models - a AICS magazine compatible drop-in replacement bottom metal for factory stocks and aftermarket stocks with factory bottom metal inlet and the first long action SAKO TRG magazine compatible bottom metal for Tikka T3 and T3x Rifles. Both of our long action Tikka nEXTgen Bottom Metal models will allow rounds with an OAL of 3.500" to feed from magazines.

Made in the USA
