Installation Instructions

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FOR TIKKA T3/T3X ALUMINUM TRIGGER GUARD

1. MAKE SURE THAT THE FIREARM IS UNLOADED. IF THE FIREARM IS LOADED, UNLOAD IT. MAKE SURE THAT THERE IS NO AMMUNITION IN EITHER THE MAGAZINE OR CHAMBER.

2. CHECK AGAIN TO MAKE SURE THAT THE FIREARM IS UNLOADED. REMOVE MAGAZINE AND BOLT.

3. USE A T25 TORX DRIVER TO REMOVE THE FRONT AND REAR ACTION SCEWS. A T25 TORX DRIVER IS INCLUDED WITH YOUR TRIGGER GUARD. IF YOU USE ANYTHING BUT A T25 TORX DRIVER FOR THIS STEP, YOU WILL DESTROY YOUR ACTION SCREWS.

4. PLACE THE ALUMINUM TRIGGER GUARD IN THE CHANNEL OF THE STOCK. MAKE SURE THAT THE LUG AND RECEIVER ARE PROPERLY MATED. INSERT THE FRONT AND REAR ACTION SCREWS. REFER TO THE CHART BELOW FOR THE TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS CORRECT FOR YOUR STOCK.

ACTION SCREW TORQUE SPECIFICATIONS [POLYMER STOCK – 40 - 50 IN/LBS] [WOOD STOCK - 30 – 40 IN/LBS] [LAMINATE STOCK – 30 – 40 IN/LBS]

5. AFTER TORQUING DOWN THE FRONT AND REAR ACTION SCREWS, INSTALL THE BOLT AND MAGAZINE. THE MAGAZINE SHOULD “CLICK IN” AND, WHEN YOU PUSH THE MAGAZINE (NEAR THE MAGAZINE LATCH) TOWARD THE RECEIVER, THERE SHOULD BE A LITTLE PLAY.

6. IF THE MAGAZINE DOES NOT SEAT OR GETS STUCK, THEN REMOVE THE BOLT AND ACTION SCREWS. YOU WILL NEED TO SHIM OUT THE TRIGGER GUARD.
