Tikka T3 and T3x
A durable ultra-light replacement for your Tikka T3 or T3x handle. With the oversized bolt knob molded from genuine carbon fiber and the bolt handle CNC machined from titanium alloy, this solution adds significant leverage and grip while shaving off 0.46oz (13g) from the factory handle. Available either straight or swept back, for both right and left handed rifles. The handle and knob combined weigh just under 1oz (28.2g).
We start with grade 5 titanium alloy (Ti6Al4V) and CNC machine each handle to tight tolerances. We then visually inspect and test fit each before packing. See a full YouTube review (fitted to a Tikka 590) from one of our customers here.
The Tikka T3 / T3x bolt handle is dovetailed and slides into a slot in the bolt body. The shroud needs to be removed first followed by adjusting the firing pin assembly. The exact steps are documented in this youtube video.
Our bolt handle is designed for a tight fit with minimal movement. We test every single handle prior to packing in a specially made
dovetail gage EDM wirecut to precise dimensions. Due to variations in the dimensions of the mating slot of the bolt body, some minor fitting may be required when fitting our handle to individual
rifles. This will require filing or stoning one or both angles of our bolt handle to suit (identify which surface rubs against the slot). Best results are achieved when removing only a minimum
amount of material and testing the fit regularly.
