    I need to remove the action from the stock. I've done this once before and can't remember the tightening sequence for the fore and aft action screws (need to check the trigger; it's gone "2-stage" in a way). I'll reiterate; do I snug the rear & fairly honk down on the front or vice-versa? Should I bump the stock of the assembled rifle on the floor before final tightening?
    Many thanks,

    Bob

    Specs call for torquing the screws to 60 inch-pounds. This is approximately a "good snug turn" with a screwdriver or a short-handled Allen wrench (depending on the screw-head).

    I've never had group sizes affected by which screw I tighten first. (I never can remember the sequence, either.) I usually just keep snugging back and forth, until that last little "reef" on a screwdriver.

    Art,
    Many thanks. I remember reading an article in Modern Gun years back dealing with a similar but different brand of rifle. The poor guy did everything but re-build those two rifles that he tested in order to get them to shoot.That's where I read of the aforementioned technique of tightening the action screws. I'm just going to disassemble, inspect, clean and re-assemble.
