Torque Specs

I'm mounting my new NF NXS and the directions with the Rings / bases give torque specs. I'm guessing this is important since they recommend it although I've never done this before. I've never spent this much on a scope either and don't want to screw it up.

looked @ inch/lb torque screw drivers on the net, pretty pricey. Any suggestions on a good affordable one, if there is such a thing?

Thanks
Mike

    Midway USA has the Wheeler Engineering Fat Wrench for about 50.00. This a pretty good unit for the money.

    Mike,

    I went to my local Honda motorcylce shop and loaned an inch torque wrench from the mechanic for the night.

    Set my NF scope and brought it back....

    Unless your gonna do it alot, try that.....

    good luck.
