    Torque specs for marlin screws, barrel bands, and wood?

    If we want to tear down a rifle, what numbers should we use when putting it back together so as not to mess up accuracy?

    I don't ever remember seeing any torque specs on the screws. I use purple loctite and do the rest by feel. Before I started using loctite occasionally would have a screw loosen but since then I still check by habit but do not remember any of them coming loose lately.
