Bolt Disassembly And Reassembly

Generally, disassembling the bolt is not necessary. But if you have reason to believe that oil may have penetrated the bolt, you should clean it in order to retain its smooth operation. This is particularly important if you use the rifle in cold or harsh weather.

In order to disassemble the bolt, please follow these steps:

1. Carefully check that the rifle is unloaded and remove the bolt from the rifle by pressing the bolt-release lever on the left side of the receiver.

2. Remove the bolt shroud by turning it clockwise until it stops and pulling it away from the bolt.

3. Insert the tip of a screwdriver (approx. 3mm wide) into the gap between the cocking piece and the bolt handle retainer bushing. IMPORTANT! Do not remove the screwdriver tip from this location until you are ready to reassemble the bolt shroud.

4. Disengage the firing pin assembly by turning the screwdriver counterclockwise (see fig. 11). Push the firing pin assembly forward until the locking cam (E) of the handle retainer bushing touches the bolt's rear surface.

5. Release the bolt handle from the bolt body. If the bolt handle feels stiff and does not immediately pull out, you can tap it with a plastic mallet at the receiver end (arrowG).

6. Remove the firing pin assembly from the bolt.

The bolt should not require any further disassembly for cleaning purposes. In order to reassemble the bolt after cleaning, reverse the order:

1. Push the firing pin assembly into place. Make sure that the bolt handle retainer bushing is in the correct position, so that you can ease the bolt handle back into place without obstruction.

2. Reassemble the bolt handle to the bolt body.

3. Re-engage the firing pin assembly by turning the screwdriver clockwise as far as it will go. Make sure that the retainer bushing locks the handle.

4. Replace the bolt shroud by turning it counterclockwise 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. If you notice any changes in the functioning of your firearm, STOP SHOOTING IMMEDIATELY! You should take the rifle to an authorized gunsmith or ship it to the manufacturer/ importer if you experience any occurrences similar to the following:

- the functioning of the trigger mechanism has changed.

- the rifle does not fire the cartridge (misfires).

- the safety does not operate.

- there is any cartridge malfunction, such as spitting gas, a punctured primer, a bulged or ruptured case or a different sound when firing.

CAUTION! In the case of misfire point the rifle in safe direction and wait 30 seconds before opening the bolt. The bolt should be opened with extreme care.

5. Use only original factory spare 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 rifle is damaged while shooting, send your rifle 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 rifle. Do not, ever send a loaded firearm.

8. Damage to rifles occurs almost exclusively when using han-dloaded cartridges.

CAUTION! Make sure you have the correct caliber ammunition for this rifle. Use only high quality, factory manufactured ammunition. The use of reloaded, handloaded. re-manufactured or other non-standard ammunition voids all warranties, and may cause severe damage to the firearm and serious injury to the shooter or others. Improperly loaded ammunition can be extremely dangerous. Always use ammunition that complies with industry performance standards established by the Sporting Arms and Ammunition Manufacturers Institute, Inc. (SAAMI) or Commission Internationale Permanente pour I'Epreuve des Armes a Feu portatives (C.I.P.)

If you intend to load your own cartridges, make absolutely sure that you are using the correct charge and type of powder.

SAKO Ltd. does not accept any liability for any damage or injuries caused by reloaded/handloaded or otherwise improper ammunition.

9. Wear adequate eye and ear protection whenever you shoot, and make sure that persons close to you are similarly protected.

10. Keep this manual, and review it periodically. If you sell or transfer the rifle, make sure the manual goes with it.
