I've never had a problem looseing the torx or allen screws when needed, it is pretty tight when loosening but not problem and no threat to stripping and I have even had some come loose before with the red loc tite. Also the last time I tightened them it was by hand and I figure all the rings are torqued a little over 20 lbs or so. What is the standard on ring torque 18 I.P. ? Also I'm in the market for a new torque wrench what are my choices borka or wheeling engeneering?
You can buy a torque wrench from anyone as long as it covers the proscribed torque range. Craftsman (Sears) sells a good one but stores don't generally have it in stock. Wrenches targeted to the gun market are generally 50% more money than seems justifiable.
