I been down this road when i built mine. The factory takedown screw is set at around 20"lbs (inch pounds, not foot pounds). It is recommend that when you build it to tighten the take down screw to 15-25"lbs. Start at 15 then shoot and observe and tighten till your grouping tightens up mine seemed to like 22"lbs. Now for the v-block they recomend tightening them to 20-25"lbs also. Remember you are screwing a fine threaded steel screw into aluminum so dont overtighten. Hope this helps
Thanks for the recommendations, I'm replacing the factory V-Block with one from Doug Koenig
that is machined steel made more precisely since I want to avoid barrel droop from a heavier
.920" diameter barrel, is the factory block not steel?
Thanks folks

I want to thank all the responders to this inquiry for their recommendations.
Since the two V-Block bolts thread into the aluminum receiver body, on
.22LR models anyway, too much "turn it till it won't turn no more" will probably get you a need to buy a new gun to get a new receiver due to
the serial number placement so I hope to avoid that calamity for fear
that the build i have in mind won't cost a couple of hundred more dollars,
what I have in mind will be pricey enough as it is!!
