Torque Wrenches?

Are there any adjustable...one-tool-do-all...torque wrenches for for tightening bases, rings and actions? Specifically looking at Rem 700, with picatinny rail and NF rings.

Thanks,

-MR

I currently use a Wheeler FAT wrench for bases and rings and a Craftsman inch-pound standard torgue wrench for action screws. Probably not the most cost effective but it works well.

Re: Torque Wrenches?

I, like 7mmSendaro use the "fat wrench". I use it for the rings, base, and action screws. It comes with the right size bit for the rem action. If I'm using it I guarantee it's not the best thing to use out there but it works.

I also have used the WHEELER ENGINEERING FAT torque screwdriver.

Pretty good for setting up scope rings to the manufacturers reco.

Pretty reasonably priced at 46.00 over here in the UK.

Cheers.
