Mountain Tactical Company spent months designing, testing,
and improving what has become the finest Tikka T3/T3x Bolt Shroud on the market
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.
With the introduction of the T3x, Tikka started shipping the
rifles with a metal injection molded mystery metal shroud. Not only is it significantly heavier than the
previous generation’s plastic shroud, but the accuracy of the part suffered due
to the production process.
The Mountain Tactical Company Tikka bolt shroud’s 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 Company products, the Tikka T3/T3x
Bolt Shroud carries a lifetime warranty to ensure a lifetime of good service.
