got 2 ?'s

Q#1. I am wondering how many inlb's to torque my recoil lug hex screws to?

Q#2. I have a post64 M70 LA and I'm wondering if there is any advantage of having a one pease floorplate?

1. 40 inch lbs is all you need, anymore just yields the threads.

2. A two piece if fine, one piece is just a cosmetic thing.

Re: got 2 ?'s

I would really like to know the formula you have for figuring the yeild of a 1/4-28 bolt?

I've always ran 65 in/lbs on action guard screws that are bottoming out solid on a pillar and a bedded action. If this was a plastic, wood or fiberglass stock with no pillars or beding the torque value would change as the material can be compressed. 40 in/lbs to me is too light.
