Torque settings... please



Log in to see fewer ads
So after a brick of ammo, my MKIV 22/45's front sight and rail screws went loose.

I just removed and cleaned everything. I will also replace the rail with another Ruger rail I have because the original one is bluish.

I have googled, and found nothing regarding torque settings.

Does anyone know ?

It would be nice if Ruger provided these information, I don't understand why they don't.

Torque for most bases is usually around 10-15 in/lbs. My 270 and 300 Win Mag are 15 in/lbs, so a 22 will not need more than that. For my 10/22, Charger, and 22/45, I usually split the difference and go with 13 in/lbs. I always use a torque screw drive since I have a tendency to be heavy handed and over tighten things. 13 in/lbs and a dap of lock tight should do the trick.

Dont forget to degrease the threads and screws before using blue locktite.

Every Single screw on my MkIV hunter has come loose at one time or another. They all have blue loc-tite and have stayed put for two years and counting.

10 inch pounds and purple Loctite should do the trick. Blue is a bit strong for screws that small IMO.

I have three 22/45 lites and I use 10 inch pounds with blue lock tite . Be sure and degrease you screw holes and screws and allow to air dry for a little while before assembling. No screws have loosened in any of my Lites or Tac sol receivers using that formula. I'm not saying purple is wrong I just have no experience with ti and blue lock tite has worked well for me.
