so i just got my model 10 2 screw accustocked savage and the manual does not give any torque values for the 2 screw only the three screw. Does anybody know them? I dont want to strip them or ruin my accuracy thanks.

Before you torque them go to Ace Hardware and buy stronger bolts and cut them to length.

The bolts that come with the rifle are very soft and the allen key will strip the socket in the bolt head. I know because I f'd mine up and now I need to drill it out. I already had replacement bolts but this last gun was brand new and I thought I should keep the original bolts...big f'ing mistake!
