Pretty lame instructions- So I called Browning and told the tech what I had and he said the torque specs for that rifle was 65 in/lbs. for both front and rear. I asked again and he said that was it.
Does this sound high to ya'll? It's a wood stocked rifle. It does have rather large bottom metal around the screws which would distribute the weight across a broad surface I guess.
Do a search on = Torque recommendations and you should find a post I did with all of the torque
values for Gunsmithing.
65 inch pounds is a little high for wood without pillars,
And as AJ said use "Inch pounds" not foot pounds.
