I have a Lightweight 81 (non takedown model) I installed Uncle Mike's sling hardware, and attached to the forend bolt. My question is, does the torque on the forend bolt affect accuracy? Should it be tightenned very securely, or just snugged?
Thanks in advance for your info.

if your are referring to the bolt that goes all the way from the front of the forearm to the receiver (which i assume you are), keeping that bolt tight aids in accuracy. So try to get it tight if you can. What year BLR is it?

I believe it is a 2006 model, Japanese made. Yes the bolt that attaches the forearm to the receiver. My rifle started slinging shots all over the paper, but I took the scope off and with irons it is more accurate than my eyes. The scope seemed solidly mounted, I'll reattach the mounts and try again.

I can see that bolt affecting accuracy, particularly if the forearm is applying pressure to the barrel.

Thanks for the reply, Billy

Im working on a takedown blr in 308 win that suddenly went from 3/4"groups to 3"groups. I have cleand the bore checked the crown checked and rechecked the scope mounts and rings. I have lots of experience on bolt action and marlins and win levers but this is the first blr ive ever worked on. Any ideas of what to look at next would be great.
