Bolt Shims

How does a Rimfire Bolt Shim work? The actual head space is in the recessed face of the bolt. Shimming between the two bolt halves ensures the bolt is up snug against the breech. If the bolt has excessive clearance at the breech it can to cause misfires and light strikes, or simply inconsistent accuracy. When a Production Rifle is assembled, a bit of extra room or excess tolerance can be left, and this slight variable can affect accuracy. When the bolt action rifle’s bolt locking surfaces become worn increases in the headspace can cause light firing pin strikes, poor ignition (misfires), looseness of the bolt, and loss of accuracy.

Factory fitting of the barrel into the receiver can also leave excess clearance between the bolt and breech. Shims can also used for adjusting after Re-Barreling If you are getting misfires and light strikes shimming the bolt may be a good way to solve it.

Anschutz 54 Older Action Bolt Shims

Lowey Writes;
Hi Lance, You may get questions from Anschutz owners about the spring loaded section on their bolt that pushes on the shim.... I ran this through very strongly and multiple rifles, the shim will change shape and have the indent for the spring loaded section but it never failed and is working perfectly in our club rifle (this rifle gets abused more than it gets looked after so it is the perfect testing ground)

TriggerShims Bolt Shims can be used as a measuring device and an adjustment tool if needed, shims are installed until the Bolt just touches the barrel breech face, and then reduce by .001"
Also used to Adjust to Varying Rim Thicknesses for your Favority Match Target Ammo

Sold in paks of 4 or 5 to check and adjust bolt to barrel fit.

Customer Review

D in Canada Sends His Before and After Targets
100 Yards with his CZ 452 American

Good Afternoon Mr. Shively, I just wanted to thank you for your excellent service and providing an equally excellent product. My shims arrived in short order and I was able to put them to the test. My groups shooting modestly priced ammo improved dramatically in my CZ 452 American, a rifle that I have been shooting with in Silhouette matches for over 14 years. It was up until now that I have been opting for more expensive Eley for matches, and with shortages in lots, finding difficulty with the 77 and 100 meter targets. I expect to see improvements in my scores and a better enjoyment of match days thanks to your product. Please accept my gratitude and Best Wishes to you and Tammy, D in Canada

Good Morning Lance, I received my order yesterday. Made the install right away for my 1962 Ruger single six that I had to fit a mag cylinder into that had too much end play. With the shims in .001 increments was able to achieve perfect end play. Excellent results. Thank you for such a great product. I will be back for future needs. Have a GREAT day! ~ Ron in CA

Perfect Shim to Perfect my Charter Arms Pitbull
Mr. Shively, The shim packs that I ordered last week for my Charter Arms Pitbull 9mm revolver arrived on time. Thanks to your tutorial videos, I installed a pair to smooth the hammer action and one to tighten up (with a small dab of gun grease) the cylinder crane to my satisfaction. From this day forward I’ll recommend Trigger Shims products to those in need of ‘tuning’ their pistols. My appreciation, J. in Va
