What are the torque dimensions when tightening the guard screws on a Model 700?

Table of contents


For the Model 700 rifles with synthetic or wood stocks, the guard screws should only be hand tight, which is 30 to no more than 35 inch pounds. The Varmint, Sendero & Police stocks are tightened to 45 inch pounds from the factory.  Over tightening of these screws could potentially crack the stock.
