    Exactly.

    The story is that I have bought a Tikka to re-barrel off a forum member and I don't have the rifle yet. The member is sending me a pic of the piece that I need, and I will post it here so that we are certain that what my new friend @rimubay has is the part that I actually need.

    Thanks!

    Ha. The guilt of 2 years' of lurking is overwhelming - clearly the first post had to be something vaguely useful.

    Unfortunately that part actually comes as part of the trigger assembly and is generally not available by itself - you would have to buy a whole new trigger unit (not ideal, I know).
    Understanding that that is a very hard pill to swallow, we will get in contact with Finnland to see if there is any way we can obtain just that part by itself.

    @Tahr we have the parts on order. Will still take 2-4 months, but they are coming nonetheless.
    You would need to obtain it via your local dealer - should be cheap at least. Sub $10

    Could very easily make. One from some steel strapping used on pallets. It's a medium tensile spring steel

    I saw the post earlier but didnt think anything of it. Took the action out of the stock tonight to take some measurements and saw it. Acis bottom metal has its mag spring tension as part of the mag release. So the factory spring just sits there and the bolt doesn't extend into the action without it.
