Bolt Disassembly And Reassembly

It is not generally necessary to disassemble the bolt, but if there is reason to believe that oil may have penetrated the bolt causing stiffness, it should then be cleaned. If you intend to use the weapon in cold weather cleaning the bolt is particularly important.

Having removed the bolt from the weapon, the bolt shroud can be removed by turning it clockwise as far as it will go and then pulling it backwards. Next insert the tip of a screwdriver (approx. 3 mm wide) into the gap between the cocking piece and the bolt handle retainer bushing. By turning the screwdriver in an counter clockwise direction the firing pin assembly can be disengaged (see fig. 11). The bolt handle can be pulled away after the firing pin assembly has been pushed forwards until the locking cam (E) of the handle retainer bushing touches the rear surface of the bolt. If the bolt handle feels tight, removal can be made easier by tapping it (with a plastic hammer, for example) at the receiver end (arrow G). Having done this the firing pin assembly can be removed from the bolt. The screwdriver should not be taken out of the gap between the cocking piece and handle retainer bushing at this stage. Normally it is not necessary to disassemble the bolt any further for cleaning purposes.

Having cleaned the bolt, to reassemble, reverse the order. First push the firing pin assembly into place making sure that the bolt handle retainer bushing is in such a position that the handle can be pushed into place without obstruction. When the handle is correctly in position the screwdriver inserted between the cocking piece and handle retainer bushing should be turned clockwise as far as it will go. Make sure that the retainer bushing locks the handle and the fit then bolt shroud by turning it counter clockwise until the cocking piece cam stops in the notch (D) before the cocking slope (see fig. 2).

By following the few simple maintenance procedures listed below, Tikka rifles will provide a lifetime of service:

1. Use only the best quality gun oil which can

- clean, protect and lubricate.

2. Corrosion can begin within 24 hours if the rifle is not cleaned after firing. This is especially true in damp conditions.

3. At least once a year, check the tightness of all screws including stock and receiver screws.

4. Take the gun to an authorized gunsmith or directly to the manufacturer/importer if any changes in the functioning of your firearm are noticed. For example:

- the functioning of the trigger mechanism has changed

- the gun does not fire the cartridge (misfires)

- the safety does not hold.

5. Use only original factory spares parts.

6. When loosening or tightening screws take care that the screwdriver is the appropriate size and shape so as not to damage the screwheads and the general appearance of the gun.

7. If the gun is damaged while shooting, send the gun to the dealer/importer and include:

- an explanation of what has happened

- the cartridge case (with which the damage occurred)

- preferably a sample of the cartridges.

In these circumstances do not dismantle the gun.

8. Damage to guns occurs almost exclusively when using handloaded cartridges. If you intend to load your own cartridges make absolutely sure that you are using the correct charge and type of powder.

SAKO Ltd. do not accept any liability for any damage or injuries how so ever caused by reloaded/handloaded ammunition.
