Thread: Tikka bolt storage

    Tikka bolt storage

    Hi All,

    I'm wondering how tikka owners store their bolts? Considering that cocking them by hand can be a bit of a pain if you don't have a screwdriver handy. Do you decock it or store it cocked?

    Cheers.

    I always decock my bolts, but that's just me

    Cocked and uncocked never worry about.

    It obviously concerns some folk. FWIW I 'store' my Tikka bolt uncocked in the rifle by the simple expedient of closing the bolt on the empty chamber with the trigger depressed.

    Forgive me if I've misunderstood, but is storing the bolt in the rifle acceptable to your (our !) FEO ?

    Why would it not be? No where does it say in law etc that it should be stored seperate. My FEO could tell me I should store my rifle wrapped in a silk blanket tied with a bow, doesn't mean I would.

    I do not think it is a legal requirement to store bolts individually after all you cannot do it with lever action and falling block rifles.
