Thread: Tikka bolts

  1. #1

    Tikka bolts

    I'm sure this has been covered before but it's still worth a mention I think.

    When cleaning the bolt it is VERY easy to uncock it...the bolt thinks it's been fired and won't go back into the rifle.
    The solution/fix is here...



    It was a lot easier to sort the demo bolt in the video than it was my 590, which was a real b****r.
    The spring is very strong

    No need for dodgy screwdriver BS, just twist it back. The spring is not that strong.

    If wearing laced boots, just trap it in the lacing, pull & twist if it's that strong.

    Hasn't happened to me yet but when it does I will have forgotten how to do it.

    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .
