torque wrench

hey everyone just wondering what type or model of torque wrenches everyone uses. ive got a few pretty good torque wrenches from working on bikes but all of them are ft lbs. im looking for some torque wrench suggestions for one that i can use for my rifles but the only problem is most of them seem to start to high in the tourque range to really be useful. any help is appreciated.

I use a precision grade Snap On that is the screw driver type with a dial built into it. Found it on Ebay for about $50, and had it calibrated (was just fine). Remember a torque wrench is most accurate in the middle 65% of it range, and musch less accurate to closer you get to the max and minimum. (all of them) I like the dial type as I can see the reading build up as the screw turns and also if somethings amiss. The best torque wrench I ever used was a digitial one sold by Snap On that was similar to the one I have, but they were very expensive (extremely accurate).
