    Does anyone know the Christensen arms Mesa factory torque specs for the action screws? I’m on a hunt and it is snow/rain today so I’ll have to clean the gun tonight and won’t be able to retest sighting it’s in so I want to try and get the torque where they had it? Thanks.

    Run your torque wrench up a little at a time and when you move the screw you've just passed where it was torqued. Torque wrenches are all different to some degree and the little uncalibrated ones people use for guns will be all over the board so to repeat an other units torque you need to basically calibrate yours to it, may be right on may not be.
