453 torque values



Log in to see fewer ads
I was fortunate enough to have purchased a NIB 453 American from a forum members private collection..Thanks again!!!....I have just finished giving the rifle a thorough cleaning and adjusting the set trigger to my preferences. Upon disassembling this rifle it felt as if the rear action screw had been installed by a Gorilla! Thought I was going to snap the bolt head off getting it loose but alas I prevailed and all is well. Now I just need to know the torque values for this rifles action screws? Upon completing this task I have a Weaver Classic 6x24x42 AO I will be installing...didnt know what I would think of the Ballistic-X Reticle but I have found it to be uncluttered and very usable! Cant wait to get it to the range this week!

I start at 16 inch #s work up 2 at a time & never go over 36, just how I do it, results may vary.

Use caution torqueing the rear action screw. It goes into the trigger housing. The other action screw goes into the receiver, which can take more torque than the trigger housing.

I normally put 20-22 in/lb on the front action screw and 16-18 on the rear.

Thanks for the information guys...like I stated above the rear action screw torque on this rifle was off the scale...it is no worse for the wear and thats why I asked. I don't know if they tighten these by hand at the factory or use a preset mechanical device at the factory. I have owned a lot of rifles and never experienced a action screw this tight!

These are good numbers. Note the differential - front to rear.
