Notes on Tikka factory tolerances
This part may not be a "drop-in" fit for your individual rifle. Some minor fitting may be required. There is a wide variation between rifles with the dimensions of the slot in the bolt-body that the bolt handle slides into. The angles of this 'dovetail' are rarely symmetrical which is what causes the fitment issues with some rifles. This is the case with all aftermarket handles machined to tighter specifications than the sloppy factory original. Variations like this are common with mass-produced factory rifles and are due to tool wear and/or cutter misalignment. In the majority of cases our handle will slot firmly into the bolt body, however in some instances minor filing or stoning of one or both angles of our handle will be required to see it fit snugly. If in doubt, take it to your gunsmith, or contact us and we'll be happy to walk you through how to correct the issue.
