Description

MOUNTAIN TACTICAL® spent months designing, testing,
and improving what has become the finest Tikka T3/T3x 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.

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® 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® products, the Tikka T3/T3x
Bolt Shroud carries a lifetime warranty to ensure a lifetime of good service.

Proudly Made in Montana!

13 reviews for Tikka T3/T3x Performance Series Bolt Shrouds

  1. Rob

    This is the first aftermarket shroud that I have tried that does not rattle on the bolt. Lock up is tighter with absolutely 0 bolt play.

    Awesome job for figuring this out for us guys who hate plastic parts on our guns!

  2. Paul Tapscott

    I have very recently purchased this bolt shroud after looking at several other after market Tikka T3 bolt shrouds available to the Uk shooter. This Mountain Tactical T3 bolt shroud does look a lot more pleasing to the eye than other designs I have looked at , it also looks to be very well manufactured.

    After a quick look on Youtube, I was able to locate several excellent video clips on how to fit / swop a Tikka t3 bolt shroud. I was then able to swop the bolt shroud from the original in about 30 seconds flat.

    It is a high quality part and a definite improvement over the original Factory T3 part. I would recommend it highly.

  3. Mihai (verified owner)

    I’ve recently purchased this bolt shroud and had it installed on my Tikka in less then a minute. Follow the video if you’re not sure how to do it. This product is absolutely great and fits my T3 bolt like a glove. I’ve threw away the original one in a matter of seconds and without any regrets. I strongly recommend this product.

  4. Bill

    Follow the video and on it goes. Big improvement for one of the best rifles made.

  5. Mark Mixon

    I installed the gen 2 aluminum bolt shroud. Nice machine work, and prefer the profile of it over the stock piece. I was concerned about the quality of Tikka T3 until I shot one. I have the T3 Laminated Stainless in 30-06. After zeroing rife, first 3 shot group measured 3/4"@ 100 yards. I have shot many around 5/8" using Federal power shok 180 grain soft points. I bet it will really shoot good with better ammo.

  6. Matt R

    Had an issue with the first one and MT promptly sent me a new one out before I even sent mine back. They also sent me a spring that limits any play. Overall this is a fantastic shroud and a great company that is really trying to please it’s customers.

    Cannot wait for the new elite rail.

    Thank you MT!

  7. A. Witek (verified owner)

    Good addition to my CTR. Easy install using a youtube video. Looks good and its a lot stronger than the plastic factory one. Came with a spring to make sure there is no slop when installed.

  8. Jon

    I just received mine as a gift. Installation was as easy as shown in the video, less than a minute. It looks even better than in the video, nice weight & feel compared to the plastic bs that came with my t3 lite. Now if only I had enough money to replace the factory stock with a nice chassis…

  9. Kody (verified owner)

    Order came on time very easy to installed very nice upgrade over the plastic customer service was great

  10. Lee (verified owner)

    These are a great replacement for the OEM plastic component. Ships with a spring to pick up loose play. Looks great, very high quality. Keep up the great work MT. Keen to see what you do next.

  11. Kevin (verified owner)

    A must upgrade I feel over the factory plastic of the original T3. I’ve had purchased 3 of these over the years, gen 1, 2 and 3. Each have been excellent

  12. Terry Lightle

    Great addition,will have these shrouds on all my Tikka rifles

  13. James Goodrich (verified owner)

    Jeff is outstanding to deal with, made my overseas order easy and hassle free. Goods are quality, as described. Don’t hesitate to deal with these guys.
