Hello:
I have removed the stock on my 3200 for an inspection and am now ready to put it back on. The owners manuel clearly says to be careful doing this and to use only a regular screw driver. It also says to use only 5 lb of torque--- any more could impair functioning of the shotgun. It doesn't say how you are to "feel" 5lb of torque. Incidently, the stock bolt is slotted and rounded. Not possible to use a torque wrench. I'am not a gunsmith and would appreciate any guidance.

Thanks,
Hack-n-Chip(aka Ron Dezenzo-Ohio)

just bring the bolt up snug then give about a quarter turn maybe less. It has to be tight just not cranked down is all.

Seeing I have all these tools its no big deal but using a large common screwdriver bit in a socket with extension to a torque wrench will make you feel better. After a few times putting that all together I decided a large screwdriver and tightening with one hand only does about the same. I think we all tend to overtighten stock bolts.

If you wrap the end of the screw driver blade with masking tape so it just fits in the butt stock hole it will help keep it centered in the slotted screw. HMB
