    Ok, this may be a dumb question so don't make fun of me if it is. I just bought a single piece picatinny rail for my savage. I am just wondering if there is anything special that I need to do like use lock tight, grease, or any special torque settings for the screws.

    I had originally purchased a different brand pic base which had torque settings printed on the package literature. The Brownells doesn't say anything about it though.

    Thanks guys.

    30 inch pounds is pretty standard for bases screws.
