A super-strong and ultra-light bolt handle and tactical knob combo for your Tikka T3. 

Oversized bolt knob made from genuine carbon fiber, with the bolt handle CNC machined from Grade 5 Titanium Alloy.  This handle and knob combined weigh just under 1 oz (28.2 gm) - less than the original factory steel handle.  The dovetail is designed for a tight, zero-tolerance fit into the mating slot of the Tikka T3 bolt body to ensure a secure and positive lock.  The carbon fiber knob is a suitable non-glare matte finish for all the hunters out there, however the basket weave pattern is prominent.  During the course of its lifetime, any cosmetic scratches to the knob can be polished out and the knob will look like new again, unlike anodized aluminum which scratches and stays scratched.


  • Handle manufactured from Grade 5 Titanium Alloy (Ti6AL4V)
  • CNC engraved lettering on dovetail specifying thread
  • 5/16" x 24 TPI male thread to accept most bolt knobs
  • Shank where stem meets knob is 0.452" diameter
  • Knob is genuine 3K carbon fiber, 1" wide at the end and 1.58" long
  • Knob features 6061 - T6 threaded insert epoxied in during manufacture
  • Threaded section 0.55" deep

Installation/Fitting Guide - The Tikka T3 bolt handle is dovetailed and slots into a mating slot in the bolt body.  The shroud needs to be removed first followed by adjusting the firing pin assembly. 


**Notes on Tikka factory tolerances **  This part may not be a 'drop in' fit for your individual rifle.  Some minor fitting may be required (NO welding or brazing etc is 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 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 this bolt handle will slot firmly into the bolt body, however in some instances minor filing or stoning of one or both angles of the handle will be required to see it fit snugly.   Best results are achieved when removing only a minimum amount of material and testing the fit regularly.  In most cases a stubborn handle will slot into the slot with a firm tap from a nylon or soft-tipped hammer.

Took a little fiddling around as it’s machined perfectly, but then got it to slip in without filing. I’m a big fan.

Advantages: Looks great.
Fits perfect.

Disadvantages: Took about 10 minutes of my patience. :)

The new carbon fiber bolt handle looks great on my gun and was pretty easy to install. I did have to file just a bit but all in all it was super easy.

Advantages: Bigger knob is easier to grab with gloves

Purchased to replace my stock T3 bolt for my Tikka build. The fit was a perfect tight fit. Quality machining with a great carbon fiber tactical knob. Can't be more pleased! Tactical Works customer service is awesome! I have their website in my favorites as a go-to for my builds!

Advantages: Quality, quality product!

Disadvantages: None!

The titanium/carbon fiber bolt handle looks great on my rifle and is significantly lighter than the factory unit. The ergonomics of the swept back design are nice and should make cycling the action for follow up shots easier with gloves on. My only complaint about it is that the machine left one of the edges that mate to the action a little rounded resulting in a slight amount of play between the handle and the action. It's still firmly in place but it's not rock solid.

Advantages: looks great, provides a better grip with gloves on, it's light

Disadvantages: The machine work wasn't quite as good as I had expected.
