    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,

    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.

    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.
