Tikka T3/T3x Performance Series Bolt Shrouds


Available Options


Mountain Tactical spent 10 months designing, testing, and improving what has become the finest Tikka T3 Bolt Shroud on the market today.

The development team was tasked with creating not only a more durable bolt shroud than the plastic factory part, but to also add a level of increased precision that would allow the firearm to perform better than it does with the plastic shroud.

The end result is what you see here. 

Mass was increased over three fold to give the firing pin assembly a more solid platform to operate from.

The outside diameter was matched to the inside diameter of the bolt race creating perfect alignment of the bolt to enhance concentricity of the cartridge to the chamber.  In essence, the benefit is the same as having a three lug bolt to insure alignment to the axis of the bore.

All this and a profound aesthetic enhancement as well.

Like all Mountain Tactical products, this Tikka T3 Bolt Shroud carries a lifetime warranty to ensure a lifetime of good service.

Proudly Made in Montana!

Q & A (81)

I just received my gen 3 bolt shroud.
When I slide it on without the spring, it slides nice and freely -no binding, but it is a little loose.
When I use the spring, it takes up the slack, but it makes it harder to cock the bolt.
Without the spring, the bolt cocks easier then with it.

I don't understand how such a little spring can make such a difference?

Can you help me with this?

First, how could the spring make it cock harder?
What are my options ?
Can you send me a shorter or weaker spring?

Do I need the spring?

Please be descriptive in your responses.

I would like to keep the shroud instead of returning it.

Thank you.

Hello Mark,

The spring is optional to install.  However, the spring can alleviate any looseness or rattle you may experience when it is installed.  If the fit is too tight with it installed you can customize the spring by clipping off some excess and it should fit just right.

Thanks for your inquiry!

How do I know what Gen my bolt shroud is? ( Mitch, 31/08/2018 )

Hi Mitch,

I guess that depends on if you are referring to your factory shroud - which are all the same or our shrouds?

We use the term generations to reference our latest design of the product.  So Gen 1 would be design 1 and so on...

Thanks for your inquiry!
