Manual for my new 700 ADL with cheap plastic stock does not list a torque specification for re-tightening the stock to action screws. Anyone know what the recommended spec is for the main front/rear screws and the smaller trigger guard screw? Also, is there a recommended tightening pattern, IE, rear then front, etc.?

Image below shows cheap stock for reference.Image

I just had my 700 stock off the other day to put on a Timney Trigger after the big trigger lawsuit. Torque? Tight enough to hold it together without smashing or compressing the stock. Not tight enough to strip threads, but not loose enough that the action may shift.
