Tikka T3 and T3x
A lightweight and durable replacement for your Tikka T3 or T3x handle. Oversized bolt knob made from genuine carbon fiber, with the bolt handle CNC machined from grade 5 titanium alloy. This handle and knob combined weigh just under 1oz (28.2g) - less than the original factory steel handle!
We start with only the best quality grade 5 titanium alloy (Ti6Al4V) and CNC machine each handle to tight tolerances. We then debur the handles in a ceramic media, clean, visually inspect and test fit each before packing. The resulting finish is a smooth non-glare titanium grey to dark-grey color. Some variations in shade of color occur between different production batches due to media changes.

The Tikka T3 / T3x bolt handle is dovetailed and slots into a mating 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 the video review linked at the top of this page. Youtube also has several videos detailing installation.
Our bolt handle is designed for a tight fit with absolutely no 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 usually involves filing or stoning one or both angles of our bolt handle to suit (identify which surface rubs against the slot). In nearly all these cases the dovetail
slot in the bolt body isn't machined true. Best results are achieved when removing only a minimum amount of material and testing the fit regularly.
