View Full Version : Torque wrench suggestions

August 8, 2004, 08:17 PM
I should have bought a torque wrench years ago but they always seemed like a spendy tool and I needed the $$ for more important gun-related toys.

I would be very interested in any suggestions you might have regarding a good quality torque wrench that can handle the kinds of issues that come up c/guns such as adjusting action screws etc.

I'm going to assume we are talking a model that would go from 5 to say 60 in#s.

Who makes one, where can I get it at a decent price. Should I go fro 1/4 or 3/8 inch drive etc.

THX in advance

All you need for most gun related torgue is inch pounds. I have found the Craftsman 3/8 dial wrench to be very acurate and it goes on sale a couple times a year for $50.00. For fot pounds I use the same style Craftsman wrench but it is much older but is a dial in wrench too.
