I've been using 45in/lbs on my action bolts but I'd love to know the factory specs!

I posed the question to Beretta, specifically asking about the T3, and they replied with 51-53 lbs.

I'm glad to see someone finally got an answer out of them.  Thanks for posting this up for us!

In all seriousness, this question has been asked quite a bit and now we have an answer.

35 inch lbs. is plenty, and I would NEVER go above 45 inch lbs. Especially on the wood stocks.

I've been tightening the action screws in my tikkas to 35"lbs too. I did a search a while ago, and at that time Beretta had emailed back an answer to someones question that 35"lbs was the correct torque.
