    what would a second hand tikka T3 bolt be worth?

    Curious as to what one would be worth?

    I will possibly be gaining a bolt that I dont need (308 bolt face)


    Cheers,

    Have heard of $600 being paid for replacement Tikka bolt. I’d rather buy a whole rifle.

    There was a couple a while ago and started off at 600 and sat for a while, went to 500. Not sure if it sold for that.

    Considering whole rifles can be brought for 900-1100 its not really worth it for most people over 500.

    The last two T3 bolts I sold went for $450 and $400

    How would you come to acquire a bolt without the rifle ?

    some dreamer got a REM700 bolt on Tardme for $5 - 600, its not stainless and bolt face looks bit dodgey.

    Wouldnt these advertsmostly be a sting to find whoever stole their rifle ?
    I think youd need a pretty convincing story like showing the rifle run over by a quad bike to show it was a legit offer.

    Where do spare bolts come from ?

    From the bush at Clements Mill Road.

    My four rifles were stolen when I was overseas. They ripped the security rack out of the wall but none of the rifles had their bolts in them.
    So I was left with a Howa 1500 bolt, a Tikka M55 bolt, and 2x T3 bolts.

    There was no 'undercover sting' operation. I just asked the purchaser to show me their firearms license and a photo of the rifle they will be using it in. The guy who brought the Tikka M55 was a gunsmith who brought it not for a particular rifle but as a spare... in case he has a client that needs one (or so he said...maybe it was HIM who stole my rifles!!)

    the only reason i could have a spare bolt as im looking at buying a rifle but selling the bolt, barrel, etc as i need the action. I'd reduce costs and use one of the few Tikka bolts that i already own for the new build.

    Hope that makes sense

    From idiots removing the bolt. Why would you ever do it in the bush?

    They are expensive because you cannot buy replacement bolts for the T3.....most people who lose their bolts just part out the rifle and buy a new one.We have had many people come in after they have lost their bolt and always seem surprised when told they can't just buy another one.In order to get the bolt they must buy the rest of the rifle with it......its the whole rifle or nothing.
