    Tikka T3 Bolt problem

    Thanks Dave, makes sense. Have two aftermarket bolt handles and one original CTR rifle left all factory except stock. They all work thankfully. Also had a three pos firing pin safety on a tikka that replaced the original shroud, was the most accurate T3 I had … she had a lilja barrel. edi

    Tikka T3 Bolt problem

    Baldie, I thought of that also but mainly because you mentioned it a while back. I had not experienced any aftermarket shrouds making problems but only had a few. Any particular brand that had led to this or other problems? edi

    Tikka T3 Bolt problem

    Certainly have some grease on the lugs and on the cam that cocks the firing pin. I also lightly oil the complete bolt. Just to be sure open the action screws one or two turns to see if they are now fouling. edi

    Tikka T3 improvements?

    Ronin from this forum is very handy with T3's, does very nice quality work. Mike Norris from Brock & Norris would also be worth a call. edi

    I can practice off-hand 22 from my workshop door. Also have a few targets in the garden to practice, very important to me. My ideal deer rifle should be capable of, off the shoulder shots as well as the 400m deer prone. At deer or fox I'd always pick the best position time allows... nothing to prove. edi

    Agree, if one has not checked the ability of the rifle, found the right ammo and maybe tweaked it a bit … then found out it's accuracy potential, how will one be able to judge the off-hand shooting results? Hunting with a 22 here is mostly off a bonnet, off a ditch or off quad sticks, less off-hand. Good to practice off hand though, one reason to have a 22. edi

    I only had the two subsonic types at hand. Bit gusty on the day. The winnie subs used to shoot well out of a cz. This one did not like them. Lots of things i would have needed to check, test etc however i sold the rifle to a friend who asked me to order one for him. I will get one from the next batch. My objective was mainly to see if the T1x fits into our stocks. Others can make em shoot. Our deer season is in full swing little time for anything else right now. edi

    Tikka T3 Synthetic stock bedding?

    The CTR version has about the same amount of plastic removed. Either way there are better stocks out there as you know. edi

    Tikka T3 Synthetic stock bedding?

    I think your smith is right. I would not feel comfortable taking money to bed a T3 plastic stock. The T3 stock isn't the worst but the plastic is not a material one would want to rely on. Maybe one way of keeping things on track would be to check action screw torque before every outing. ASH have a small little wrench around 5-6nm. edi

    Andrew the stock is quite OK as is, much better than say the hogs back on a CZ. edi

    You can see the open bolt angle in the picture. So much more practical than on the CZ. edi

    Quick zero at 50yds. Only had CCI subs and Win subs. Rifle only has a few shots through her and I might have not had the best shooting rest. Top right groups were winnie subs, rest CCI. Best group was bottom left with 11mm 50yds. Would love to try some Eley subs. Would also like to try a different moderator or no moderator to see if groups improve. Just didn't have the time today. edi

    I thought the same with the writing on the box. Hey ho... The real purpose of this 22 will be a garden trainer rifle, maybe play a bit at longer steel targets. I threw it into my T3 308 CTR hunting rifle stock and boy is she lovely. Bolt opens smaller angle compared to CZ, so much nicer to operate. Trigger turned down as far as it went but might still be a bit heavier pull than my CTR which is not at min. The CTR inlet will leave a small gap left and right with the 22 floor plate but that does not matter, rifle just plopped into the bedded stock. Now just need to sort the rail and put a different scope on. edi

    Came in the door this morning.... quick check, T3 pica rail does not fit. Needs forward holes drilled in a different position the T1X action is just too shoot. What a sweet little rifle . edi
