    Removing a stock and putting it back on

    Is the only thing I need to worry about is the torque on the screws to make sure my accuracy is still sweet? Even if done right, will it shift my POI so I need to re-sight it in?

    Cheers
    Yeah nah bro

    Always best to check afterwards. I have a torque screwdriver if you need one.

    and be aware a lot of torque setting are for lubricated bolts not dry. a little bit of blue non-permanent lock tight wouldn't hurt. I usually coat the bottom of the action and barrel with a little grease, to repel water and keep corrosion at bay.

    Water, oil, CRC, etc between the action & the bedding can cause all sorts of grief....with group sizes & consistency

    interesting, I am having a few problems. but in saying that. one rifle shoots well from clean and at 100, but not so at distance in the field but the same load use to. (could be me, out of practice) I was about to go through a few things.
    the other has a load/round that's not as good as it was, yet a new load it fine.

    any thoughts on why a bore copper fouls quicker than it used to after polishing the throat and a little in the bore? I wouldn't say its tight as it never used to copper foul as quick, but accuracy is good. (the same rifle as above that shoots well from clean)

    I dunno...

    Might leave it to the experts. I posted up because a fella who comes into my work a bit offered to help me strip my gun down and examine the trigger because the accu-trigger is catching, it no longer runs smooth. He's a top bloke but I don't know if he actually knows his shit or not. Would hate to bugger my rifle up before going on my south island trip.
    Yeah nah bro

    Phillip you do need to fix that trigger because it was a prick to use on Friday. Take it in to a shop as it could be a very quick fix.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!

    You don't need to be an expert to take the stock of and on

    Just take it off, clean any crap out, air gun or something in the trigger. Put it back on hold barrel to the rear and snug up the screws.

    Check zero. It shouldn't move much if at all.
    "Hunting and fishing" fucking over licenced firearms owners since ages ago.

    +1, what he said.

    & if have a T3 Tikka, make sure the recoil lug goes back into the action properly...sometimes they came be a right PIA.

    I took it into h and f on the way back from yours but it wasnt going to be fixed in time. I can break the stickiness by fixing the accu trigger halfway squeezed temporarily

    Take care that doesn't compromise the element of additional safety provided by it.

    If its a savage accutrigger and the trigger is getting stiff, then yes it needs a clean and just the smallest drop of lubricate and it should go back to normal. Not hard to do, did mine last year.
