I posted this elsewhere but thought I should post it here since it is a Tikka specific board:
Opened up my Tikka T3x .223 varmint yesterday to adjust trigger weight and put it back together using a torque wrench. Used suggested torque setting of 62 in-lb from page 12 of the user manual and had two problems. One is the torque setting forced one of the screws passed the washer in the trigger guard and two it striped the head of the screws..
Talked to Beretta US today about this and it appears that there is a typo in the manual. The correct torque setting should have been 30 in-lb and not 62 in-lb. They send me replacement for free which is good service but I want you guys to know what happen and to avoid this.

Maybe reviving an old 2017 post? Well, here's an update from 2019.
I just bought a new Tikka T3X SS/syn in 30/06. In 2 different places
(Pages 13 & 115) in the supplied manual it says to torque the action screws to 62 in/lbs.
My intuition sez that's way and Hell to tight! Snooping around on Beretta USA website I see recommended torque as 25-30 in/lbs.
I also see where people have contacted Beretta Tech Support, and they were told 51-52 in/lbs. I've also seen the torque figure of 44 in/lbs.
So…..since Feb 2017…up to the present time…Tikka/Beretta has not had the time to correct the typo in the manual??
To say I'm disappointed is an understatement. My opinion of Tikka/Beretta has dropped a lot, and I've not even fired my new rifle yet.
…..and I absolutely do NOT NOT know the correct torque figures for the action screws on my Tikka!!!
Even if Tikka/Beretta _DOES_ contact me, I see no good reason to believe whatever kind of “stuff” they may present to me. See no reason to believe them.
