    I have a CZ 452 Style in .22LR. It has three Receiver Screws and one Barrel Lug.

    I have a YoDave Trigger Kit that I want to install.
    I'm courious, when I reassemble the rifle, is there a preferred technique for torquing the Receiver Screws and the Barrel Lug?

    If anything, I want to gain accurracy by torguing to an optimum number.
    But I sure don't want to lose any accuracy.

    Thanks for the help.

    If it is pillar bededthen the torq would be up to 35 inch pounds. I would torq the front one to 20 inch pounds the middle one to 15 and the one in the tang to 20 inch pounds to start with. Maybe start all to 10 inch pounds shoot it and see how it shoots then increase the torq on each till you get it to the best acuracy.
    The middle one should not be torqed right down just the front and back.
    F.K.
