Anyone know the torque specs for a Tikka T3 S/S stock bolts? They do not give that in the manual even though they recommend taking the stock off to do trigger adjustments.

Yes 35-40lbs is what I was told as well... Is it a newer one??? The 243 i have says to take it off as well but i didn't have any Problems adjusting it with it on... I'm assuming its a SS synthetic??? I'm not sure if the torque specs would be different on a laminate stock...

That seems like an awful lot. Foot-pounds or inch-pounds? It is a synthetic. I had the stock off to try to adjust the creep out of the single set trigger on the 22-250. I have heard with some brands that you should torque one bolt first as well.

Slight improvement. If you adjust it too far the trigger will not work properly, so it is a fine line getting it to where it's best. The normal trigger is better in that respect. That set trigger is a nice piece of work on the range though, 7-9 ounces. The normal trigger can be set down to 2 lbs I believe. It's gonna be a great coyote gun. I am loading up some fine tuning loads today. As soon as the monsoon passes I'll try to get some range time in. If it's not wind, it's rain. :x
