TECH TIP: Rimfire Bolt Shim Installation
~ A General Guide ~

Rimmed Cartridges use the thickness of the cartridge rim for head-spacing .22 Rimfires Headspace on the Case Rim, and the actual head space is in the recessed face of the bolt.
Shimming between the two bolt halves ensures the bolt is up gently tight against the breech.
I cannot tell you which shim best works with your rifle, you decide that yourself by fitting and feel and by shooting.
Installing Bolt Shims requires fitting by hand, and checking with the Bolt installed in the Rifle, and Locked Down - you do not measure with the Bolt out of the Rifle.
To establish the Bolt/Breech fit, shims are installed and fitted on an empty chamber. Start with a 4 or 5 Pak of shims, install the .0015" or .002" thinnest shim and see how your bolt closes, if it seems to close as normal, then continue to install each thicker shim until the bolt starts to close harder than normal. At the point where your bolt begins to close hard, that was the amount of slack that was in your bolt, measured by whatever shim or shims combined were needed to bring the bolt up tight to the breech. Now it is best to remove that shim, and step back one number, example would be if a .005" Red shim causes the bolt handle to close harder than normal, then take it out and install a .004" Purple.
If you have to force or put undue stress on your bolt to close it, you should reduce the number of shims. You will generally only use 1 of the 4 or 5 shims in the package, but you can stack shims together if needed. When you have the correct shim installed, your bolt should close normally or just (ever-so) slightly tighter than normal. Put a very small drop of oil on the shim. Now you can go to the range and with the barrel pointed in a safe direction, once again check fit with your favorite ammo. Due to variations in rim thickness, you may have to reduce the thickness of shims, remember you have already removed all the excess headspace from the bolt/breech, so now the only thing to do is remove thickness (shims) if / as needed to get to your sweet spot.
For Longest Shim Life, once you have have correctly fitted your shims Top Canadian Shooter Dan Walker from Inrange Rimfire recommends using a heavy grease.
If you have to force or put undue stress on your bolt to close it, you should reduce the number of shims. A minimum of clearance should be maintained, do not put undue stress on the bolt by shimming too tightly as it is unnecessary!
At no time do you want to force the bolt to close, did I explain that clearly?
Bolt Shims have in many instances cured light strikes. Will they help with Accuracy? Don't take my word for it, Read our the Customer Reviews or ask our Customers
Simply Chambering More Consistently, Yields More Consistent Results.
Your Satisfaction is Guaranteed, if you feel you got no benefit, you may send your shims back for a Full Refund.

CZ 455 Varmint Tacticool with Bolt Shims

CZ / Brno Rimfire Bolt Shim Target

Lance, your shims are by-far the best bang for the buck in terms of accuracy improvement. I bought a CZ 455 Tacticool and it seemed to like SK Rifle Match but was still very inconsistent. Like most CZ owners, I started with a trigger spring, then bedding. Still no substantial improvement. I upgraded the trigger guard and tried varying baseplate torque values.
Again, no substantial gains. Then I read about your site at Rimfire Central and decided to give your product a try. I went to my local outdoor range, added the .004" shim while at the shooting table and loaded 5 rounds
My 50 yard groups shrunk from +1.5 MOA to sub 1/2 MOA! The enclosed (target) photo is result, the upper-left was the fouling group then it settled-in! Conditions were 3-7mph wind, 98% humidity, 78 degrees @50yds.
Your product is seriously underrated and unknown by most. I guarantee all of my future shooting conversations will include the impact your products have on accuracy.
Sincerely, Fernando in AL

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
