Tikka T3x accessory soft touch pistol grip & bevertail forend compatible with t3 lite?

I have a t3 lite that I want to pimp out a bit. It already has accessory adjustable cheek raise which is great but the rest of the stock needs improvement. I like the look & feel of the t3x SFT stock. Guncity sell accessory beavertail soft touch forend & pistol grip the same as what's on that t3x sft model.
My question is:
Has anyone added these t3x accessories to a t3 lite successfully, can it be done?
Cheers

Not without extensive mods.   Buy a second hand T3X stock.  They come up at round $100-$150 on TM.  Then, the T3x world is your oyster.

All the people that upgrade to the fancy carbon fiber stocks sell off the old ones.  It would be worth checking with your local firearms retailer as they may have swapped stocks on rifles before they leave the store.
  

This is my rifle, there are many like it but this one is mine.  Without my rifle I am useless, without me it is useless.

It turns out the beavertail forend does fit straight onto t3 stock but you have to drill a hole to secure it. But the pistol grip is no go.
Thankfully as you said new unwanted t3x stocks are for sale on trademe & I bought one this morning for $120  Cheesy
