Re: Torque recomendation

Here is a good place to start. It has the factory recommended specs. Be sure to use an inch pounds torque wrench/ screwdriver.

Re: Torque recomendation

I torque mine to 45 in lb
65 seems like overkill

Re: Torque recomendation

Remington specs 45inlb.
Speedy Gonzales (if you lnow who he is ) specs 65inlb on a epoxy bedded HSPrecision and epoxy bedded McM stocks.I personally go with 65 and never had problems.
To be determined by the end user.Start at 45 up to 65 if you want to expierment.
