62 inch/lbs for action screws on t3x tacticalPosted by Mobeasto123 on May 22, 2017 at 11:15 am
Hi guys, after shooting my tactical and removing the pressure spot on the stock.. I wanted to torque the the actions screws correctly.. I looked here and thereand found 35-40 inch /lbs.. Then I asked Tikka what is the real spec.. They just answered me that the recommended torque is 62 inch/pound on it… Wow that fairly high… What do you think of it??

Start low then move higher if need , you won't damage anything starting low , but you can damage stuff by going high

If that's a wood stock that does seem really high.
The Accuracy International Chassis System says to torque to 6 N-m which is about 53 in-lb. That's a solid piece of aluminum for that system.

That ain't a wood stock… This is the T3x tactical synthetic stock.

Joined this forum just now to discuss. Picked up a brand new T3X Lite today and dropped the action out of the stock to adjust the trigger pull. Set up my Wheeler FAT @60 per Tikka's manual and stripped the forward action screw. Was finally able to back it out, new set on order from Mountain Tactical. Think I will try 50lbs with the new screws.

I have never torqued action screws more than 45 – 50 in-lbs
35 in -lbs is usually sufficient

Tikka representative confirmed that 62in lbs is correct for my T3x rifle.

Maybe on the Tac-A1 but 62 in/lbs would crush a stock.
Beretta has maintained that 35-50 in/lbs is within spec.

good to hear that you have chosen Tikka and that you are happy with your new rifle!
7 Nm (62 in-lbs) is the correct torque for the receiver screws. Please contact you dealer or call the Beretta USA customer service ( contact details available at http://www.berettausa.com/en-us/service/ .) in order to get a replacement for the broken screw.
With best regards,

I'm I missing something here…62 in-lbs….can you elaborate on what stock that spec is tested and formulated on…?
