Re: Preventing ring marks
I have used the Harbor Freight cheapo Inch/ Pound Torque Wrench and it has worked great for many years . I have seen a few reports from those who did have problems . I also use mine for Action tightening . As far as redneck short cuts , I have seen Magic tape used on Scopes ( under non-lapped Rings ) on light recoiling Rifles work very well . No Ring Marks at all . It was a little tricky getting the Tape off after use though .
