T1X SPACER UNDER THE BARREL ??



Log in to see fewer ads
I just bought a T1X MTR yesterday (tired of waiting for a CZ457 MTR) and in checking it over and cleaning it prior to my first rounds I notices a black plastic spacer between the barrel & the stock. I seem to remember reading this was a spacer for the T1X as it uses the same stock as the T3. However, it appears the barrel is actually riding on the spacer. Should I remove this to make it a full floating barrel?

I've thought about taking mine out but the gun shoots so well with it in that I'm not touching it.

It's designed to take up the space that the chamber portion of a center fire rifle barrel would occupy in the stock.
Whether it needs to be there or not for accuracy purposes is an interesting question.
My T1x went into a T3 Hunter wood stock immediately, and it shoots very well with nothing touching the barrel.

I didn't fire the new rifle in it's original synthetic pajamas at all, so I can't comment on what it was like originally.

I tried mine with and without- no difference with any of the std velocity ammo I shot. Search this forum for "shoehorn"; that will return a number of threads that address the issue.

I don't have a T1X, but if I did I would be leaving the spacer in.

I just got one too and contemplated the same thing. Mine shoots very well so I'm going to leave it. Food for thought. My first Tikka a T3X 223 Varmint had a stock rib touching the barrel about 3" out from the receiver I immediately ground it down before shooting the rifle. I later found out that's a deliberately engineered pressure point. I've since got two more T3Xs and they all have the same rib pressure point and I have left them alone. All three rifles shoot very well. I can't help but wonder if the Varmint would have been better if I left it alone. Luckily the shoehorn is reinstallable. People mess with these Tikkas, for why I don't know. They shoot amazing out of the box and all the work people do to improve on the oe plastic stocks is often immeasurable. Btw never call a Tikka stock a tupperware stock. They're (fiberglass?) reinforced and much stiffer than the soft rubbery plastic stocks from Savage and Ruger that coined the term.

If the T1X shot better without the insert...seems like someone in Finland would have figured that out before shipping it over here with the insert in as designed by their smart engineers. Just saying
