How to adjust trigger on my Tikka T3?

Mike Seeklander Answered question September 6, 2022

Tikka T3 trigger adjustment can be a bit tricky.

  • The first step is to remove the action screws (located on the right side of the rifle just in front of the receiver).
  • Once the screws are removed, take off the stock by depressing the small button on the left side and pulling it up.
  • You should now see two allen screws that hold the trigger assembly in place. Loosen these screws (do not remove them) and then pull back on the assembly to expose the adjustment screw ( located at the rear of the assembly).
  • You will need to turn this screw clockwise to make it harder to pull or counter-clockwise to make it easier. We recommend making very small adjustments and testing your shot each time until you find the perfect setting for you. Keep in mind that this is a delicate process, so go slowly and be careful not to over-adjust.
  • Once you have the trigger pull set where you want it, tighten the allen screws back down and reattach the stock.

Your Tikka T3 should now have a perfectly adjusted trigger!

  1. Make sure the rifle is unloaded and remove the magazine.
  2. Open the bolt and ensure that there is no round in the chamber.
  3. With the bolt open, use a screwdriver or Allen key to adjust the trigger blade up or down until it feels comfortable for you.
  4. Close the bolt and replace the magazine.
  5. Fire off a few rounds to check that the adjustment has been made correctly.

It depends on what you want to adjust. There are many different ways to adjust a Tikka T3 trigger, and it really depends on what you need or want to change.

If you’re looking to adjust the weight of the trigger, that can usually be done by adjusting the screws on the trigger itself. If you’re looking for a lighter or heavier pull, simply tighten or loosen the screws until you reach your desired weight.

However, if you’re looking to adjust the travel of the trigger (the distance it needs to move before it fires), that’s a bit more complicated and will likely require some tools and expertise. In most cases, it’s best to consult with a professional gunsmith to get this kind of adjustment done.

Tikka T3 trigger adjustments depend on the model of rifle.

To adjust the Tikka T3 trigger, you will need a screwdriver that fits the adjustment screws.

First, identify which screws need to be adjusted. The vertical position and first stage screws are typically identified by arrows on the trigger housing. The horizontal position screw is typically identified by a hole in the housing.

Once you have located the adjustment screws, use a screwdriver to turn them clockwise or counterclockwise to make the desired changes.

Always review your owner’s manual before making any adjustments to your firearm.

There are a few ways to adjust the trigger on a Tikka T3. One is to use the adjustment screw on the trigger itself.

This screw can be turned in or out to change the pull weight of the trigger.

Another way is to remove the stock and use a hex key to adjust the screw located at the back of the trigger assembly. This will also change the pull weight.

Finally, some triggers come with a spring adjustment tool that can be used to adjust the pull weight.


Generally, you’ll need a screwdriver to adjust the screws that control how much pressure is needed to fire the rifle. Be sure to consult your rifle’s owners manual for more specific instructions.

Once you have adjusted the trigger, it’s important to test it out at the range to ensure that it feels safe and comfortable for you to shoot. It’s also a good idea to have a qualified gunsmith check your work to make sure everything is safe and properly calibrated.
