Tikka T3 Bolt Shroud Replacement

Hi, this is Jason McCann from Tikka Performance Center. Today, we have the Hinterland Shooting Supply replacement bolts shroud for the Tikka T3 595 and 695, it works on all three guns. This is a very good looking piece of equipment here, a piece of machining, [inaudible 00:00:30] excellent machine work on it. You don't see any of the machining lines on here, has a nice coat of care coat on the gun. The lines follow the lines of the receiver, so it's a nice cosmetic piece as well as a functional piece. We actually had a client that had a 17 Remington and 595 that he kept cracking his plastic bolts shroud. Truth be told, he was loading his rounds too hot, but the [00:01:00] expanding gases were actually cracking as plastic bolts shroud. This is made of aluminum, nice sturdy piece, and he hasn't had any issues with his bolt shroud since. So we're going to put this on the gun, show you how easy it is to install, and take it out to the ranch. 

So what do you have here, I'm going to flip this over and you can see, we have this is a large detent right here. Do not turn this towards the large detent. You will actually unload the spring and the firing pin, and unless you're Hercules, you're going to have a really tough time pulling, rotating this back around. So what you're going to do is you're just going to take your handle, hold on to it nice and tight, and you're actually going to rotate this away from this large detent, away from the handle, it's going to rotate nice and smooth until it won't rotate anymore, and then this is just going to slide right off. We're then going to take our new one, slide it on here, a [00:02:00] little pressure, and we're going to slide it back to until you hear the first click. As soon as you hear the first click, don't stop, turn, or don't turn any longer, you get into this deep well here, like I said, you are going to have...
