I would have called Wolverine Supplies as I am up in Canada but it doesn't do me much good on a weekend at this time. I just thought someone here would know what it is without having to wait till Monday. It is not listed anywhere in the manual that came with the rifle.

Re: Recommended torque fro AI AE MK II action screws.

The torque spec I was given by AI was 10 newton meters (88.5 in lbs).

This is correct (AI rounds it up to 89 in/lbs though).

Re: Recommended torque fro AI AE MK II action screws.

I took the side panels off the rifle and looking at the rifle there appears to be three screws holding the action to the chassis. The larger screws are forward of the trigger and a smaller screw behind the trigger. For those that have and AI AE MK II and have done this yourself when confirming the correct torque do you check all three screws. Just want to make sure. Thanks again.

Tom Irwin posted a correction to this stating the AE action retaining screws are to be 10nm
