I just got a new FN SPR. The trigger is an old style model 70 type set at 6#. When I took the action out of the stock to adjust the trigger to 3# I found that FN had epoxied the nuts on the trigger so it could not be adjusted. I don't know why FN would make an adjustable trigger and then make it so it can't be adjusted. Does anyone know how to remove this epoxy. Also, is there a BEST way to break in a chrome lined barrel.
Thanks

Have you tried a heat gun?

I heard FN had epoxied the triggers, but mine was not epoxied. I think mine was 3.5# when I got it and I dropped it down to 3# (as low as it can safely go on my rifle).

Where do I find the torque spec for the action fasteners?

I was told by the people I bought my rifle from that they torque the guard screws to 65 inch pounds, but I talked to someone a McMillian and they suggested that you start at 30 inch pounds and do a ladder test to see which works best.
