    Mystery Circlip - Tikka T3

    Sooo.....

    Was cleaning my T3x after the range yesterday and this circlip fell out of the mag well. I assumed it was off the trigger, but buggered if I can see where it belongs.

    Any experts able to enlighten me? hopefully my shooting mate is not having a laugh.

    As opposed to missing bits, ie detent pins or selector springs that go flying, never to be seen again.

    Or you find the safety spring but,was there a ball bearing on the end.
    No amount of googlefoo turns up a drawing
    Real guns start with the number 3 or bigger and make two holes, one in and one out." -

    At my work you can have something pulled apart set out in an order so you can get it back together properly then the boss will walk up to it pick a piece up have a look at it walk off with it then put it down somewhere and forget where he put it

    Funny. this bloody clip took me 30mins to find on the garage floor. somehow it traveled 3m and ended up under a shoe.
