    I have a remington 700 300rum with a laminate stock. I pulled the action out of the stock and adjusted the trigger. When I put it back in the action, I torqued the screws to 40 in lb. When I stood up a piece fell on the floor. It's the piece right behind the safety. Can/should I just glue it back on? Will it effect the accuracy?

    Sure, you can glue it, but I would check to see WHY it broke in the first place.
    Sounds like something was misaligned when you either took it apart, or when you re-assembled the action into the stock.

    I did a similar thing in my HS Precision Sporter stock many years ago, failed to see the mag box wasn’t in it’s recess fully, tightened the screws and cracked the stock.

    Cheers.
