Does anyone have a good diagram of the Tikka T1x trigger assembly?

I think my wife's T1x trigger is missing the trigger return spring and the videos that I have watched only shot the trigger adjustment spring and plunger.

All I can find on Tikka's website is a diagram of the trigger unit (see PDF link below) but nothing that shows me how it's put together.


So what is happening is the trigger blade won't return forward after firing all the time especially if I point the gun vertical. So when cleaned it today I took the trigger unit off and I could see how loose the trigger blade was.

Any help is appreciated.

Sounds like your trigger spring plunger may be installed backwards. This will cause excessive over travel and failure to re-cock if I remember correctly. I learned this when I accidentally installed it backwards one time.

Interesting .... I haven’t messed with the trigger other than the screw that adjusts the weight.
Wonder if they fubar’ed it from the factory.

The problem is probably your trigger weight setting. Tighten the set screw some and try again.
That’s a good idea. I Tried that. Made it as heavy as possible and it’s still not going back forward consistently . If I point it up it won’t reset and the bolt decocks as you close the action.

I would pull it anyhow just to confirm the plunger is facing the right way.
Here is a picture....

You’re a genius.
Took it apart and here is what I found.

put it together like yours and voila! Now it works like normal. Wonder if it was a Friday rifle at the factory. One thing of note. The trigger pull is much heavier even adjusted as low as possible. I would guess 3-3.5 pull. Pretty close to my 3.5lb AR triggers. Not great but having it work properly is worth it

You can put a lighter spring in if it’s still heavier than you prefer.

Just make sure you don’t go too light and check it wont slip if you run the bolt hard or bump it around.

I've been called a lot of names in my life but genius is definitely not one of them LOL!
Glad you got it fixed.
Elay or Mountain Tactical springs will get that pull weight down.....

An AR-15 bolt catch plunger spring works excellent!!!!!!
No modification required, just swap out the springs and you have way lighter adjustment. Very consistent as well. If more people knew this, YO DAVE would never sell another $9 spring and charge $12 for shipping!

You can get a great lighter trigger spring on ebay, I got the cheapest one I could find on there , installed it and pull went to about 14 oz. Nice improvement .

Un suggerimento per favore. Quando rimuovo la vite per alleggerire l'otturatore, devo svitarla completamente? E esce la primavera? Il grilletto cade o rimane in sede ed è facile inserire un'altra molla e stringere un po 'la vite che regola il peso del grilletto? Grazie!

    i hope this makes sense to you...

    la vite che tiene il grilletto in posizione si trova di fronte alla vite di regolazione del peso di trazione.non c'è modo che la vite di regolazione escoe oltre la vite del grilletto.

    Penso di aver capito. Quanti giri devo girare la vite di regolazione del peso per portarlo al minimo? Dicono che come minimo può scendere a una libbra! Vero?

    è possibile eseguire il back out della vite di regolazione fino a quando non si mette in contatto con la vite che si imbullona fino al ricevitore. ma senza un indicatore di trazione del grilletto stai solo facendo un'ipotesi sul peso di trazione. è importante che il grilletto non si impegni da solo. dovrai fare un bump test dopo averlo regolato.mi dispiace di non essere stato in un video che spiega questo.

    if people are wondering, i am using a translator to help this chap out as the only Italian i know is swearing in Italian thanks to some good mates :ROFLMAO:
    he is asking about trigger adjustment and how low he can go.

    se le persone si chiedono, sto usando un traduttore per aiutare questo tizio dato che l'unico italiano che conosco impreca in italiano grazie ad alcuni buoni amici : ROFLMAO:
    chiede della regolazione del grilletto e di quanto in basso può scendere.

    Grazie mille. Spero di aver capito

    no problemo

    the problem with a translator is it translates directly what is written and not what it is in conversation. I know we have to reverse what is said in English for it to make sense in multiple European languages. even jokes told in my mother tongue aren't funny when they are translated. they never make sense.

    Quindi, se allento tutta la vite che regola il grilletto, toccherà la testa dell'altra vite che tiene l'intero vano del grilletto? E quindi sono al minimo del peso dello scatto. Giusto? Scusa ancora .. Altra domanda .. Il manuale di istruzioni dice di stringere le due viti a 5 Nm e 7 Nm per montare il vano grilletto. Perché hanno due diverse forze di bloccaggio? E a quale dei 2 si riferisce? Mi sono reso conto che uno è più lungo dell'altro. Grazie ancora a chi vuole aiutarmi. Sei prezioso!

    i tuoi post si presentano in italiano qui, perché non lo so.

    guarda questo video, usa i sottotitoli in italiano per aiutare a capire cosa sta dicendo.spero che possa aiutarti. dopo la regolazione assicurati di fare un test di bump stock per confermare che il grilletto non scende da solo.
