Tikka T3 / T3x Bolt Shroud (superlite)
CNC machined from high-grade 7075-T76 aluminum alloy
Available in either silver or black color options, this bolt shroud is the perfect complement for your lightweight T3 or T3x build. At under 0.47oz (13.4g), our shrouds are much lighter than the factory shroud yet
significantly stronger and harder than shrouds made from 6061 grade alloy. We machine the internals to tight tolerances which is instantly apparent by the lack of slop when removing your plastic (T3) or cast (T3x) factory shroud and replacing it with ours. This is not just a decorative part, the shroud is designed
to protect the shooter's face in the rare event of a cartridge rupture
or failure, where hot gas and powder debris can travel back through the
bolt body via the firing pin hole. We manufacture these in significantly large enough volumes to keep the price as competitive as possible given the materials and tolerances involved.
shrouds come with a small coil spring which is optional to install and is identical to the coil spring Tikka supplies as standard (ours is stainless steel). This spring takes up the slack of a necessary tolerance
designed into the shroud to ensure proper function of your firing pin
assembly across any tikka T3 / T3x bolt assembly. Installing the spring will remedy any minor noise made by the shroud in
this dimension when out hunting.
- Our shrouds are CNC machined to a tolerance within +/- 0.05mm (approx
+/- 2 thou) in the critical dimension that locks into the firing pin
assembly. This dimension has been cut slightly deeper than required to
variations discovered between different rifles tested. In an early
production run we didn't account for a tolerance here which
resulted in this batch not fitting some of the rifles where assembly was
