Tikka T3 Bolt Shroud

Recommended Posts

Just took my .260 T3 out and noticed the plastic shroud has broken on one side. I'd prefer to replace it with something fairly standard looking but ideally in some sort of metal.

I read an old thread where it talks about the spring inside the replacement shrouds to prevent rattling increase locktime and trigger pull. I don't want to do either!

I haven't removed the shroud yet, does the plastic one not have a spring inside? I looked on the Beretta E-store they have the T3X shroud in aluminium listed but its out of stock. It appears to have a spring inside by the picture.

Whats the best option?

Thanks.

good evening,a t3x will fit and is metal and yes has a spring inside .i have one fitted on my t3 243 and the one that came on my t3x both work perfectly. i made the mistake of buying a copy/after market shroud and had issues .hang fires/light strikes etc.buy genuine tikka parts and you will be fine.
