T-bolt torque settings revealed

Log in to see fewer ads
Sent an email to Browning regarding the torque setting on the two bolts attaching the barreled action to the stock. In my case a new target/ varmint walnut stocked T-bolt, 22mag.

Here is what Browning recommended. inch pounds

"The torque setting for the action screws is 10 - 14 inch lbs. I would recommend that you start with 10 lbs. and verify accuracy. You can make 2 lb adjustments up to 14 lbs. if necessary."

When I checked, my bolts, they were less than 10 inch pounds out of the box. Set them to ten and now will play around to see if any change in accuracy.

Browning has always been quick to answer any email questions.

Thank you Kracer...Another great 'share'....should have known there was a recommended torque. Good to know the upper limit especially when dealing with wood stocks.
