Amen to the screw torque issue! The rear action screw just seems to back itself right out after a box or two of ammo.
My gun strings out vertically over 2 inches unless I tighten the mother loving crap out of the action screws, but I'm all out of LocTite right now so I can't really fix that problem yet.
