Default Tikka t3x bolt handle stuck...

So i am trying to remove the bolt handle from my t3x tac bolt and it will not move even the slightest bit. Even with a plastic mallet and bronze taps.. my other tikka t3 lite had no such problem as this.. pops easily as it should.. really frustrated. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Were you at the Davis Street Range last weekend?

If not, I know someone with the same problem as you...

No never been there, from what I have seen online quite a few people have had this issue.. I have tried using some brass taps and the mallet but it doesnt budge one bit so I stopped before I cause damage.. called Beretta and they where absolutely no help, basically asked why I even needed to remove it? I mean seriously... then said I could send it in to them but that would probably be a month long process.

Try to put some heat on it and then smack it with your mallet. Worth a shot. Mine came out easy on my T3.

I needed to tap my Tac A1 bolt pretty enthusiastically to change the bolt knob. I used a piece of Berdan primed brass instead of a proper punch.

Did you put the bolt handle in a vice and you just tapped the beveled part on the back of the bolt?

Suggestion: (this assumes there are no plastic or rubber parts involved)

Get a heat gun and a can of either spray freeze (found in electronics shops) or canned air duster (found in office supply places - Staples, etc.). Heat the bolt and handle until it is very warm to the touch. Hit the bolt handle thoroughly with the spray freeze (if using a duster, turn the can upside-down, then spray.) Tap as appropriate, if it doesn't fall apart on its own..

Might help, might not.
