Thread: Tikka T3 bolt handle removal?

  1. #1

    Tikka T3 bolt handle removal?

    I duracoated the bolt on my T3 - I know - stupid thing to do

    I had a bit of a job trying to get the bolt handle into it's slot on reassembly and knew I'd struggle to remove it again - a year on and I've removed the paint - perfectly smooth again - but there's no way the bolt handle is coming out.

    Any tips on how to remove it?

    Alan, did you get some paint between?
    Check on you tube, T3 Bolt.... Fairly well explained.

    Thanks Edi - I removed the bolt handle and painted that separately - I guessed the tolerances would be fairly tight so just gave it a bare dusting.
    Like a child I just wanted it all back together ASAP so rammed it in there in the hope that that would scrape the paint off the tight spots

    I have no real reason to take it apart but I like to give it a good clean now and again.

    I was going to try heat? Or maybe dremel it out - I know I'd balls that up though.

    If you have a minute and would be in the area, drop in, maybe we can help.
    Don't force anything....yet.
