Tikka T3 trigger overtravel adjustment

Does anyone know if there is a way to improve the trigger on the Tikka T3? I have made the necessary adjustment for pull weight, but the the overtravel is driving me nuts, guess I got spoiled with rem. and win. triggers.

I have the same question. The trigger is not too bad in terms of weight of pull, and sear engagement, but you nailed it about the overtravel. It just gives me the creeps.

I assume that there is no fix since no one has replied to this question, and i don't think there are many tikka fans on this forum. Other than tikkamike. Lol

Re: Tikka T3 trigger overtravel adjustment

Probably right. Or the only solution is an after-market trigger. When you consider the recoil pad that comes on the T3 (a piece of junk), and the rings (not the best), that rifle has to shoot like a scalded cat to really be a good buy. Maybe mine will, have not shot it yet.

Paying for a trigger and installation would drive the price for the rifle only into the $1000 range.

The sling swivels look serviceable but I probably won't use them.

By the way, mine is a LH too.

There is no user adjustment for sear engagement or over travel.
