View Full Version : Torque value for rings

02-02-2008, 02:57 PM
I just bought a CZ-527 in 221 Fireball and I'm not sure of the torque values needed for the factory rings. I called CZ and they said they did not have a recommended torque value, only to snug them up. I'm thinking for the cross bolt 40 inch/pounds and for the top ring half 15 inch/pounds. What do you all think?

Top ring haves are 15 in/lbs.

The ring crossbolts are 65 in/lbs.

Taking into account that the .221 Fireball has very little recoil I don't imagine that very much torque is needed to secure the mounts without them ever moving or becoming lose.

Just my .02.
