Lumley Arms Tikka T3 / T3x Bolt Stop (Bolt Release) replaces the original cast steel unit and eliminates the need for modification when re-barreling the rifle to a different length cartridge. On earlier model Tikka T3's the Bolt stop could be filed back to enable sufficient bolt travel in order to pick up the rounds; however, the newer Tikka models have a hollowed section inside the bolt stops which prevents any alteration.

Lumley Arms Tikka T3 / T3x Bolt Stop (Bolt Release) is made from grade 5 Aerospace Titanium alloy (Ti6Al4V) material and is less than half the price of the factory part with much greater quality.

Advantages of Lumley Arms Bolt Stop:

  • Very light, strong and corrosion resistant
  • High end material and construction

Fitting Guide:

This part is not a guaranteed 'drop in' fit - some fitting may be required. Lumley Arms CNC machined titanium bolt stops are slightly longer and a substantially tighter fit than the original factory casting for a secure 'no gap, no wobble' fit to your T3 action which they were designed for. The bolt stops also fit the newer Tikka T3x although can be a tight fit in some specific rifles. Lumley Arms test fit each bolt stop prior to packing in our own shop rifle (T3x); however, if the bolt stop is a tight fit in your rifle the simple and fast fix is to very slightly enlarge the center hole (dowel pin hole) of the bolt stop by drilling it using a #30 rivet drill bit (0.1285" / 3.26mm). These bits are only a couple of dollars online or at a hardware shop. Lumley Arms have noticed that Tikka moved from a round hole with the T3 to an oval hole for the T3x which allows minor movement back and forth. In 90%+ of cases our bolt stops will fit the first time without any drilling required. Enlarging the hole does not impact the bolt stops function in any way.

Contact Lumley Arms directly if you are having difficulty fitting this part.

Lengths Note:

The following lengths defined (Side Picture) are based on Tikka's OEM chambering list. For 'short' and 'long' the next longer size up will allow bullets to be seated further out (if your magazine OAL and magazine feedlips permit it).
