Disassembly Question



Log in to see fewer ads
Okay I have a newer TD Lite that is shooting extremely well based upon my criteria and mission.

After perusing this forum I'm reading about people having difficulties with group consistency and I do not want to join this group!

I just picked up some Kidd parts and before I take apart a perfectly good shooting rifle I want to know if there is anything I need to do or not do once I start removing the front (and only) receiver screw to separate the receiver from the buttstock.

When I remove the screw do I mark it or check the inch pounds it is torqued at first or am I just overthinking this process? You're sage advice is greatly appreciated.

I usually just hand tight, read the manual if anything is needed it will tell you

I have 3 TD's and I tighten them all to 18-20 in/lbs. That seems to get me the best accuracy out of all 3 of them. If it doesn't shoot as good you can try starting at 18 and go up in 2 in/lb increments until you get it to where you like it.

Take down 10/22 's are like springer air guns screws have a SWEET SPOT .
Too tight or too loose makes a big difference .
Read my post check your takedown screws .

Had a lot of frustration but it takes time to get it figured out .
Check for screws being to LONG that was my problem action not tight in stock.

Thanks. My TD is running great now. I want to replicate what I have to get repeatable results after I disassemble and reassemble. I think I'll invest in a variable inch pound torque wrench to figure out what my current screw torque is.

The wheeler Fat Wrench works pretty well and you can find them for around $40. It may not be the best one available but it is plenty accurate for use on firearms.
